- Best River Shoes Ever! Review by Julia
Quality Love It Scale Value
I can't recommend these shoes highly enough. The syping on the soles is incredibly sticky and I can walk on any rock - covered in algae or not! They are comfortable and look good...plus, the heel folds down so you can wear it like a clog when you don't want to wear it like a shoe. It's great for around town and around the river - very stylish! If you are a river rat like me, you'll want to buy it at least a half size bigger to accommodate a drysuit booty or neoprene socks. Since it's too big for my regular foot size, the fold down heel is especially handy. Dries super fast, too.
Only downside - the stitching isn't the most durable. Mine are doing ok after 2 years, but the stitching is starting to fray. I've heard that people put aquaseal on the stitching when they are new and it helps with the wear and tear.
