Got a questions for all you guys out there, What kind of shoes do you where when you are on the river or lakes.

Been thinking about the neoprene shoe/socks.

Thanks for your time, stay safe

I also worked at a store that sold them, so i got them cheap. But i really did like them.

It depends on how cold it is, I've been out in December and January.
Cold, cold water--NRS HydroSkin Wetsocks + NRS Paddle Wetshoes.
Cold water--NRS Paddle Wetshoes.
Starting to warm up--NRS Hydroskin Wetsocks + Columbia Drainmaker III shoes.
Hot weather--Columbia Drainmaker III shoes.

I just tried some Aleader water shoes this weekend, very good drainage, fast to dry, and pretty cheap.

Some kind of sandal (Keens, Walmart knock-offs, I have both and can't really tell the difference) about 97% of the time. Old running shoes 3% of the time. Never Crocs, they get wet and twist on my foot. Once launched, I usually un-shoe and throw them in the footwell. The shoes are only essential for when I'm on the bank loading and unloading.

Warm weather . https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KQTKTD7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just have to be careful in sand so you don't foul the lace tensioner . I have had mine for 2 yrs and the silt and sand have not been a problem yet .

I got a pair of the Columbia Bahama style water shoes a couple years ago on sale for like $30. They are perfect for kayaking and even some light duty wading and surf fishing.

If it’s cold or I want to keep debris out I’ll wear them with neoprene socks.

Water temp below 50 degrees--almost knee high water proof boots
Water temp 50-80 degrees--old running shoes
Water temp 80+--cheap slip on water shoes from Wmart


Whatever shoes you choose, wear long dry wicking pants and long socks.
Very few things worse than sunburn kayak leg. You get a bad case of it one time, and you wouldn't wish it on your worst enemy.

I got some of those on sale and will try them out tomorrow. They run narrow, though.

I personally don't care for self draining shoes on the kayak. Seems like everytime I step in the water before I climb into the kayak my shoes get filled with gravel, mud, sand, etc. I usually just wear my wading boots (Simms Zip It Booties). On occasion I'll wear a neoprene type water shoe but not often. Regardless of what I wear I avoid black soles. Got tired of cleaning black marks off the deck of the kayak.


You get out of it what you put into it!

I have Soloman Amphib Bold. I like them. Bought them in a rush because I had a trip coming up.

Cold weather/water, I wear much boots or my duck waders.

I use Magellan Outdoors Men's Neoprene Wading Boots
These have a stiffer sole than normal water shoes or dive booties making it painless to walk on gravel or rocks.
The sole is not stiff enough to fish in a rocky river all day but more than adequate for getting kayak from vehicle to/from water.
Price is pretty good to as they are under $30 at Academy.
I have over 200 outings on mine and still in good shape.

I wear my sims wading boots when it gets colder out.
