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.

      The bottom is relatively thin and smooth. I bought a pair for a thin,
      flexible shoe to fit in my play-boat, and they work great for that. I'd
      buy another pair if they had my size.

      This wet shoe is awesome, but the bottom is not rugged. If you were walking on a gravel road your feet would feel the stones. My shoes are primarily used from parking lot to beach to boat. They are fine for that.

      The bottoms aren't what I would call rugged. The bottom of this shoe bend,
      you can feel most of the things under your foot if it isn't extremely
      small. If you're looking for something that will be comfortable for a bit
      of a hike, these are not the droids you're looking for.

      A:

      Yes, a 6 will be way too short, especially if you are wearing heavy socks and/or a dry suit. These booties run wide and very short. I wear a 7 1/2 size shoe in womens. I ordered these in a 7, then in an 8, and finally in a 9 and had to return all pairs because I couldn't straighten my toes while wearing them. The booties are very high quality and have a great design. Unfortunately, the sizing is way off.

      Because I also paddle in winter--only ice keeps me away--I ordered these
      shoes *one size larger*, allowing for extra-thick wool socks. Also, my dry
      suit and half-dry-suit bottom are fitted with integral booties, which add a
      mm of thickness.
      In my opinion this product runs "small" and I suspect you would not find it
      comfortable.

      HiCindy,
      I put a gel insert in this and an orthodic and love the big toe box. It
      could only be improved if it had a zipper as some water seeps in and you
      have to take it all off to pour it out. I'm thinking to poke a couple drain
      holes near the heal.

      Hi Cindy<br/><br/>I have used the Sasquatch. Although it's toe box is spacious and comfortable with bare feet, I think you would have a hard time getting your gear in there too, as the overall fit is rather snug. You should look at the bigger, more boot-like water shoes nrs makes. No matter the brand, if you see a bootie that looks like the Sasquatch, I believe you'll have fit problems because they are made to fit next to your skin. Check out water boots. <br/>Jake<a href="http://overview.mail.yahoo.com?.src=iOS"><br/><br/>Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone</a>

      Cindy, we have moved to a larger, more naturally-shaped toe box in a number of our shoes. Go to - http://www.nrs.com/category/2625/women/water-shoes?ppg=all - There you'll find that expanded toe box on the Freestyle, Desperado, Women's Kicker Remix and Paddle Wetshoe (not the Closeout model). You can get a look at the shape in the Larger Images & More Views section. You'll have to give them a try to see if they will work for you. Our returns are free and easy.

    Q:

    Can anyone tell me what one or a pair of these weighs? I would want to use these both for canoeing and for icy, rocky stream-crossing shoes while backpacking when lightest weight possible is critical (while they provide good foot protection and support, I think my Keen Newport sandals are too heavy for backpack stream-crossing shoes, esp. when I also need to wear neoprene sox with them).

      A:

      I'm not at home, so not in a position to answer the weight question.
      They are reasonably light and are good for river crossings and on-shore rapid scouting. Your lightest backpacking option is to get your boots wet or go barefoot, but if you are willing to carry something extra for rivers, then this shoe will work well for most crossings. Not enough protection for rapid current that is rolling cobbles/boulders.

      Probably right around a pound as a pair. Super light weight and the only rigid part is the sole. So contorting them into your bag should be fairly easy.

I use these shoes for kayaking,from the Maine coast to the lakes in the adirondacks. I like that these shoes have a very good sole for climbing in and out of my kayak,on any surface. They are comfortable and do not restrict my foot movement on my rudder pedals at all. I wear them from spring until late fall,great for what it is designed for....I had 1 issue,after 10 uses the stitching began to unravel,I don't know if I got them caught on something or if it was just poorly stitched,NRS promptly replaced them,even shipped express delivery so as I would not miss my upcoming trip,,,,great company to do business with!

It is a coincidence you contacted me about this product, because I was going to contact you. I wore these in the spring and had just begun to wear them this fall, and I noticed they are already wearing out. There are two holes worn in one sole, and the rubber on one side is starting to peel off. Otherwise, I really like there booties, and I'll repair them as necessary, to keep them going, but it seems really soon to be having to do that.
