Commonly heard complaints from boaters are "My wetshoes dry slowly" and "My shoes really stink." The problems are related. Neoprene shoes don't "breathe" so moisture escapes slowly unless you work to eliminate it. And bacteria and other microorganisms in the water and from your feet can generate odors in those moist conditions. This video shows how to clean and dry watershoes to head off odor. And if stinky shoes happen, we show how to eliminate it.

    Q:

    Is this show waterproof if not going over the top of the boot? Basically, would your socks get wet if y were walking through shallow puddles or lots of wet grass?

      A:

      A large proportion of the boot is neoprene which is not waterproof. Furthermore, the boot has drain holes in the sole which do not have a one way valve therefore water would immediately seep through the sole. They are designed as wet shoes not dry shoes.

      These boots are not waterproof in any way. If you walk in water your feet will get wet, over the top or not.. They offer good support. I got them to wear with my dry suit to protect the booties. They offer some insulation, but not much. All around, a good boot for the money.

      This is not a waterproof boot, it is a "wet boot." It has drain
      holes in the sole and the mesh in the sides. If you walk through
      water, even if it is not over the top, your socks will get wet.

      A:

      The bottom 3/4 of the shoe with the hard rubber sole and sides is waterproof.. The neoprene will let a little water in. If the boots a little big I wear the wet socks in them, it makes your trekking more comfortable and keeps your feet warm. Otherwise if you are wearing a wetsuit, wear the cuff of the leg on the outside of the boot, not tucked in the boot.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I wear these boots kayaking and my feet are totally immersed in water at
      some point. That said, I believe neoprene works by allowing a small amount
      of water to pass through it. The thin layer of water between your body and
      the neoprene is heated by your body and that is what creates the insulation
      of neoprene. This is why baggy neoprene will not keep you warm... it must
      be a tight fit. If you are looking for dry feet I think you'll find that
      if water rises just above the hard rubber section of this boot, and
      contacts the neoprene it will leak and get your feet wet. You probably
      want something else. Anyway, that's my 2 c.

      not necessary,but recommended. Buy a high wet sock, helps keeping sand and
      gravel away from your feet. Also if you do cold weather kayaking helps with
      the "dry suit".

      I would go up a full size for a comfy fit with dry suit socks and liner socks. You definitely want liner socks otherwise you will get a stinky dry suit, compromise it's breathability and risk rubbing your sharp toenail on the precious fabric.

      A:

      I wear a variety of socks with my Attack Shoe. Cold water, light hiking, and portaging are reasons why I'll wear a sock up to 5mm thick.
      As far as sizing with socks goes... the Attack Shoe is no different than any other type of shoe. It all depends on the exact size of your foot.
      I'd also highly recommend replacing the insole with green Superfeet insoles. Superfeet provide a much better footbed for improved support and protection.

      A:

      I usually wear Hydroskin wetsocks with this shoe. Actually even in the summer, since I find the socks help keep the boots from getting too smelly. I've worn the shoes without the socks though, and don't notice a difference in the fit of the shoe with or without sock. I can even fit the shoe over the latex booties on my drysuit. The material of the shoe is fairly stretchy.

I mostly use the shoes for whitewater canoeing, rafting and light hiking/portaging.

I've replaced the insoles with green Superfeet and the support is good, comfort is great, they are lightweight and I especially like shoes that fit snug around the ankle to stop sand and other debris from getting inside the shoe.

One minor issue is one of the buckles is slightly defective causing difficulty when trying to unbuckle that shoe.

The front grab loop is too small to slip a finger in, but just grabbing the loop is adequate for removing the shoe.

I am a class II/III kayaker who is generally very easy on gear (most lasting many years.) I was very surpprised when mt NRS Attack shoes began to come apart (sole coming off) after just four or five kayaking trips in less than eight months. Apparently I must have gotten a defective pair, and I'm sure NRS will rectify the problem. Had they not fallen apart, these shoes would fill the bill nicely for the knarly portages through brambles and up steep embankments.
