These shoes are just amazing and they get the job done. Protect feet from water and I could wear them all day long on the boat.

Water shoes are a must and...

Water shoes are a must and I didn't realize that at first. My first pair was a cheapo brand at a big box department store (bad move), then realized that comfort and quality were important. These were perfect. KEEN brand is a super high quality brand for not only water shoes, but all sorts of footwear. Love mine!

As an oc-1 paddler I have...

As an oc-1 paddler I have used these shoes before (kneeling on a saddle) in a Probe 12 (Mohawk canoe).

Overall, they are a solid pair of shoes. They have great traction, and make waking through the river, or climbing on slippery rocks a breeze. (I especially like the toe-cover as a small protection against submerged undercut rocks in the stream bed.)

However, to swim in, these shoes are a hassle. For an open-boater, that has occasionally flipped and had to swim (either through whitewater, or on still water) I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE SHOES FOR PADDLING. The water rushes through the shoe and gets between the footbed, and the foot- this creates drag and makes it difficult to swim against the current, or to swim at all.

All in all, these are amazing hiking shoes with fantastic arch-support, but they are not good shoes to paddle in.

I finally found a water...

I finally found a water shoe that was more like a shoe than a sandal. In design they are more like a very light weight running shoe than a sandal. They fit very true to size when in the store and dry. When wet though my foot tended to slide forward and the shoe felt 'short'. I am not sure if the lacing system just does not hold them tight enough or what. I like the shoes a lot - but I suggest trying on one size larger to make sure they fit well wet.
