Men's Drainmaker™ III Water Shoe is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Shoe This is my third pair of Drainmakers. I fish a lot during the summer and I want a shoe to protect my feet and stay cool. If it rains it drains. I love this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoes I bought this for crossing streams and some hiking. They are comfy, airy, and a great all around summer shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boat shoes for fishing all day. If you have to fish all day or if you're in a tournament these are some of the best shoes you can have. I like them because I grind all day and normally my feet get worn out but, when I wear the Drainmakers I don't get nearly as tired. Sometimes when fishing tournaments we are on the water for 10 hours and these are great shoes for such an for such an occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as the name of the shoe suggests They drain great, they're light enough to keep on for extended amounts of time, and they're very comfortable. I used them in an overnight endurance event in and out of the water and never had a single issue with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shoes As we get older, our feet hurt more. I purchased theses shoes and after wearing them, I will tell you that I have never had shoes this comfortable. Awesome purchase - in fact I am wearing them as I type.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sailing Needed shoes to swim from sailboat to shore, hike a few miles, then swim back. The first try was sock-less, and the interior of the shoe is not sufficiently smooth without socks. The next time, I wore socks, and was the only person able to do the hike without irritation, but socks remained wet throughout. 100% polyester or other synthetic sock would have been better. The shoes are durable, shed water quickly, and dry quickly, but any sand that gets in doesn't drain out. Now that I am off the boat, the shoes are lightweight and fine for everyday wear. In short, these are good for rocky streams/shores but less so for sandy ones, and need some thin layer between foot and shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shoe I was looking for a boat shoe and this shoe has been the best most comfortable one I've ever owned. Looks great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drainmaker 3 water shoe These are perfect for use on my kayak becuase I often walk in shallow water during a day of fishing and these shoes dry quickly after coming out of the water. The fit was true to size for me and they are comfortable for all day use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Kayak Fishing Shoe I use this shoe without socks when canoeing or kayaking and wading a river.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered Looking to get away from sandal sun burn while out fishing this shoe fits the bill as I can wear it when launching and retrieving the boat and while on the water. Light weight and comfortable. I wear a 10 in a hiking shoe and should have ordered these in a 9.5 but seeing I am just in boat all day size not a big issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Put to the test and passed with flying colors I finally got the chance to put these sneakers to the test in 2 occasions while rafting Provo and Arkansas. They performed as expected, giving stability, draining properly and looking good. The only complaint is that they took longer to dry than expected. Also great traction for walking on the river, on the streets, and on the trails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DRAINMAKER™ III The shoes run large and you have to pay shipping to return them, then wait for a credit, then you can order the right size, this is a terrible process, I am afraid that I will never order online from Columbia again. disappointED

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drainmaker III Water Shoe I'm a fishing guide and am on my feet all day, have tried quite a few other brands and these are by far the most comfortable shoes I have found. No lower back pain or numb feet after a few hours of use. Bought some for my wife and she's now on her third pair. We even bought a pair just to have as a casual do anything kind of shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Drainmaker III Watershoe Would be a great water shoe if there were no sand or small gravel involved. I fly fish on South Florida Beaches and purchased this shoe to allow me to walk distances on the sand (in and out of the water) and to walk out on submerged reefs if necessary, The shoes quickly fill up with sand, which accumulates under the shoe liner. The shoe very quickly become very heavy. This shoe is totally useless for my purposes. A waste of money. Would be useful as a boat shoe on wet decks, NOT for walking anywhere there is sand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On my 4th pair This is my favorite water shoe for kayak fishing. Comfy and doesn't hold a lot of water, so they don't weigh a ton when you get out of the water.
