Too expensive for what you get. Better off to buy something from Walmart for $14.95

I have very wide feet and Softscience fit well.. give them a try.

Has anybody tried the Astral kayaking shoe for boating? Nobody has them in stock around me to try on in my size.

Give the Simms Currents a look. They have a right angled foot bed and are amazing. Best boat shoes I have ever owned.

SC Fin 2.0 look like Crocs 2.0 or Crocs part duex or Crocs with fishnets.

Columbia still makes drainmakers in several different styles FWIW.

Crocs can be really bad, lots of people fall when the toe grabs and you trip. I've had it happen and so has a couple of my friends. Actually I just use flip flops all the time here in Florida or go barefoot. Makes your feet get bigger though. I used to wear a 13 D most of my adult life but in the past several years have gone to a 15 and a half. I think it's from flip flops and going barefoot.

Maybe I should start fishing without pants.

I used to wear Astrals. I loved the shoes and great guys run the company. Can't say anything about those particular shoes though, just that quality is great.

Barefoot as well, although I did have a Red and White Bomber lure with a kingfish stuck in the side of my foot one time.

I have both crocs and soft science "the fin" shoes. I think the fin is softer, also doesn't slide around on my feet when wet. I have found I don't think about the fins with them on, where as when I was wearing crocs on the boat there were times where I "was aware and had issues with them when moving around. I wear crocs all day long, everyday(they have some decent looking shoes you can order online)... except when I'm on the boat.


there is fabric/insole between feet and drain holes so your feet aren't exposed.

You wouldn't happen to be the one walking around the wilderness in the great NW every now and then would you?! My nickname was Sasquatch when I was younger

I used to wear Crocs until I rolled my ankle in a pair, then it was back to bare feet until I broke my toe slipping on a bloody deck. I wear Sperry H2O 7 Seas lace up shoes and have not slipped since. They were pricey but the hooks pull out of them better than out of my foot...
