I usually only wear flip-flops with my kayak but this weekend I was out on Purtis and stepped in some clay and broke them. I think it's time to upgrade to something a little more practical and durable. What kind of water shoes are y'all wearing.

Crocs float, they are very cushiony / light, and clean up/ dry out easier /quicker, compared to nylon webbing types. Crocs offer some toe protection and I also use them with stocking foot Waders, two sizes bigger.. But Crocs traction is not as good if you're walking through slippery River rocks. Chacos with toe straps if I decide on a sandal, they hold more securely to Bare feet

CROCs or wading boot. Insure to put sun block with CROCs because you will have dots on the top of your feet.

I use a PFG lace up shoe. I got tired of my feet burning.

Old running shoes, long socks, and long quick dry pants

I’ve lost a croc in 2feet of water/muddy bottom getting into a kayak.

Very few things worse than kayak leg and foot sunburn—long pants, long socks, and old running shoes after learning my lesson.

[quote=CCTX]Old running shoes, long socks, and long quick dry pants

PC:Those ideas about socks inside the Crocs and pants have worked for me for decades! Wool has fibers that coil up and provide cushioning against blisters as well as warmth even when completely submerged, plus sun protection, great if you have to do a lot of walking with wet feet, at least it works for me!

PC: yes, I have success with an outside tightening strap on crocs made out of paracord at the arch area helps tighten up the fit, and also pad and reinforcement of the hinge at the flip down back strap so that it does not tear out or come loose in sticky mud..

PC: yes, and another area that needs protection from the Sun (that doesn't rinse off continuously like sunscreen) is the back of my hands. I've had good luck with thicker /heavy duty / two size bigger / extra large rubber gloves with the very end of the fingertips cut off. The holes at the fingertips allow the fingers tips to be pushed out or retracted as needed. The holes also provide ventilation which greatly reduces sweating inside the gloves, plus the rubber part is much easier to clean and to dry quickly, compared to fabric gloves. That glove idea may not work for everyone, some may prefer the feeling of fabric gloves against a kayak paddle..

I like old running shoes. Mostly mesh so they drain well and tie up good when I need to.

I use these in my boat and they work great, all mesh drains immediately, solid soles, and no laces to worry about.
I would imagine they would work well in a yak also

Why yes, yes they do. Once the water temp drops a bit I go to knee high muck boots.


Keep looking forward. That’s why windshields are larger than rear view mirrors.
