TECHNICAL WATER SHOES
Integrating technical water shoes with lifestyle sneakers began with the Crush. You loved the idea so much, we took it a step further and created the Vibe. Both styles feature durable Cordura® upper to handle harsh portages, super sticky soles for maximum wet traction, and tuned interiors for barefoot comfort. On top of that, when you ditch the boat for the pub, the Crush and Vibe look as good as as they feel. Shop All Footwear »

About NRS: Northwest River Supplies
In 1972, with only $2,000 in his personal savings, Bill Parks started Northwest River Supplies with one mission: to help others raft. 42 years later, Bill sold NRS to its employees. Today, the 100% employee-owned business strives to continue Bill’s legacy helping people pursue passions on the water. At our Moscow, Idaho headquarters you’ll find passionate water-lovers just like you, from rafters to whitewater kayakers, sea kayakers to stand up paddlers, kayak anglers to fly fishermen. Our lives, and livelihoods, are drawn to water.
