Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around show I bought these for a rafting trip with lots of hiking and I did not need to bring another pair of shoes. They were very comfortable and dried quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE These shoes are amazing. Light weight Comfortable I am hooked on Columbia Shoes. I have had such a hard time find tennis shoes that not only were comfortable but light weight and don't hurt my feet. I am on my feet on average 8 to 10 hours and they still feel great!! Would highly recommend these shoes!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for The Narrows I was planning a return trip to Zion Nat'l Park in Utah to do the Narrows hike from the top down. First time, I wore typical waterproof hiking boots that came above the ankle. Well, I remember how much my feet took a beating from the supportive, yet unforgiving hiking boots. I knew when I did the hike again I wanted something that would be extra grippy in water, supportive, yet flexible, and didn't come up above the ankle. So I bought these shoes with all that in mind...and these shoes completely met my expectations! I was able to hike 9 hours in the first day, not slip and fall in the water, and the shoes drained any excess water. They didn't dry completely overnight when I was at camp, but that didn't really matter since I was still walking through the river the next day. My feet were adequately supported, yet still had the flexibility to cross the river and still grip on the algae covered rocks. Interestingly enough, all the gear shops around Zion also carried this shoe so that confirmed my purchase even further. =)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe it's me Maybe it's just me but, I found these shoes to be so unforgiving. I purchased them for use at Disney World since we had planned on going on water rides I figured that would make it easier.... but once I tried them on when they arrived I found them to be like walking barefoot on concrete. There's NO cushion in these folks. They're a hard rubber sole, so if you're a tad heavy set, and need some cushion. Don't go with these. I returned mine if that says anything at all. I think they're pretty, and the construction of them was sturdy and well made.... but definitely not good for long time spent on feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife loves them. I bought a pair for my wife. She says they are comfortable to walk in, drain quickly after getting wet, and the soles have very good traction. They are great shoes for kayaking, canoeing, wading, short hikes to and from the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable shoe i have Bought this shoe for a trip, we went to Disneyland so we were on our feet for at least 12 hours a day. My feet never got tired at all. With all the water rides the stayed dry. I would totally buy this product and recommend this shoe to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I researched and found this shoe I purchased this shoe for water aerobics and I researched significantly before I made my selection. I am 70+ years and have some joint pains so I wanted and needed a well-made shoe. This one is wonderful. I ordered a size 6 (a half size smaller than my normal shoe) because of all the reviews I had read about earlier shoe models. They fit perfect although the 6 1/2 might have worked too. They are comfortable, supportive, lightweight, and do not interfere or make it harder to do the water aerobic moves. I like that the insole comes out for drying and they dry in a day. The shoe laces came untied the first day, but I have learned to double tie the laces so they stay tied. I am so glad I selected this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite shoe!!!!!! I LOVE these shoes. In fact I have bought 3 pairs. They are very comfortable and run true to size. I have worn them everyday since I bought them which was about a month or more ago. Perfect summer shoes, no socks, getting wet is not a factor, you just slip them on and off you go. I wear them to work which can be a water rich environment and wear them everywhere else. I have gotten more compliments on the riptide/spark orange pair than ANY other shoe I have ever owned, and I am a shoe girl! People love the color combos of these shoes! I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for water aerobics I have heel spurs and needed cushioning while doing aerobics in the pool. These do the job. They are so light I can swim with them on. There is nothing negative I can say about them. The size is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boating Camp I work at a kayaking, canoeing, and outdoor camp for kids and these shoes are perfect!! They are great out on the water and comfortable to wear all day long. Durable and breathable I highly recommend these shoes. My summer would not be complete without these shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This water shoe is great. I have tried several other brands and this is the best. Drys fast, comfortable, runs a little big, had to send it back for a smaller size, they did not charge me for shipping on the smaller size. Fast delivery, what more could you ask for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable but a little large Shoe is very comfortable and looks great. Ordered my normal size, 5.5, but runs a little large. Like the shoe so returning for a size smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first pair of water shoes Just started my first water exercise class for arthritis. These shoes help with my balance. I've only used them four times, but they do help me. Only concern is the shoe strings are a little short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled with the shoes I was on a 4 week kayaking vacation in Key West FL and used the shoes on a daily basis. They dried quickly and were comfortable wet or dry. Very cool in the heat. Footing was great no issues with slipping. I highly recommend these shoes for anyone who is around water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Kauai I purchased a pair for the entire family. These shoes have enough support for short walks/ hikes and are great for wearing in the water. No drag when walking in the ocean, great grip on the rocks and quick drying when done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I previously owned the original Drainmakers (and still wear them) but they have been worn a little too much and have gotten dirty. So, I upgraded to the Drainmaker II and I love them! At first I was a little hesitant about the sizing (they are a little more snug than the original shoe) but after wearing them around they work better with my feet. I wear them pretty much every day either at work or out fishing on the boat and my feet are not even sore. This shoe is great for anyone who has owned the original or is looking for an all around great water shoe!
