Women’s Drainmaker™ III Shoe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and Airy! These are fun. These are bought for crossing streams and some Utah hiking through rivers and while I haven't tested them yet in this context I have done some hiking/walking in them and they are comfy, airy, and a great all around summer shoe! I'll come back and update this in June once they are tested as water hiking shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product comfortable works well in water These shoes are great. Wore them in the water in Aruba and after a rain storm. They are very comfortable, breathe easy, have a good grip for going on rocks and dry fast. I would definitely recommend this shoe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When backpacking, still need camp shoes This is a great looking and fitting shoe. High quality and super comfortable. I tried to use it as both my water shoe and camp shoe on a recent backpacking trip. Unfortunately, the shoe didn't dry out and I had soggy shoes in camp. I'm sure they dry out quickly in hot weather/sun, but not so much in backcountry Yosemite in September.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water shoe Wore these on a kayak trip down the Medina River last weekend. Very comfortable and great slip resistance in the water. The shoes and my feet both dried out quickly (I did not have prune feet when I got off the river six plus hours later). Purchased in the Quarry/Candy Mint color. Threw them in the washer when I got home and they look as good as new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weaker than the Drainmaker ll Shoes do not seem as sturdy as the Drainmaker ll. The base and insert construction is the same, but the fabric seems weaker. The tongue on the ll's connected on both side to keep debris from getting inside, the lll's do not have that feature. I depend on these shoes for work surveys in the mangroves and in deep mud, and they are still the best for the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drainmaker I love Columbia shoes. The fit is great. They are durable and stylish and the price is right. I highly recommend these. They are comfortable to wear and walk in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around shoe I bought this for use on our boat but have found it to be an excellent everyday shoe. It is extemely comfortable and lightweight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Usable shoe I bought the Drainmaker shoe for an upcoming trip to Africa. I wanted a durable, lightweight, shoe that would dry quickly. It has all of those qualities and I think it will do well on my trip. However, I always wear a wide shoe, and no shoe company makes this kind of shoe in a wide, so I decided to try the Columbia. It is pretty comfortable; one baby toe is somewhat cramped, but I will keep them because I think they will work. Columbia, make some WIDE women's shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Water Shoes I bought these for a trip to Costa Rica and Aruba. They were the best purchase I made. We hiked in pouring rain, climbed to and repelled down waterfalls, jumped off rocks to snorkel, rafted, hiked through lava fields, went horseback riding in the ocean. They held up great. I did not get one blister. Wore them without socks so they could drain. Sometimes sand or pebbles got in and I had to take them off and rinse them out, but that was not a problem. I would recommend these and would purchase them again. I did not even wear the tennis shoes I brought with me. These worked for every adventure and outing. Even cute with dresses and skirts. I wear a 10.5 to 11 and the 10.5 fit perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't like the ties I'm returning these simply because I don't like a tie shoe for kayaking. Takes too long to put back on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from About to order my third pair I already have two pairs of these shoes in different colors. I recently purchased another pair of shoes from a competitor, which I will be returning, and purchasing my third pair of Drainmaker III's. These are the most comfortable shoes I've owned. I haven't tried them in water yet, but for just everyday walking around they are awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Womens Drainmaker shoe These shoes are the lightest and most comfortable shoes I have bought. I have a trip coming up to the Galapagos and they are exactly what I needed for a water shoe but also for walking on the islands. As an added bonus they are a great blue color.
