I've been looking for ever for the perfect water/hiking shoe. I wanted it to be comfortable soft on the inside, drain well, have an agressive hiking sole, and to protect my feet. I finally found it with this shoe. I've taken my drainmaker 2's to Hawaii on many hikes including crossing streams and creeks. They performed perfectly. On my favorite hike here in Oregon (Opal Creek) there are many large boulder type rocks and tons of water to wade through and again they performed perfectly. I have two pair and I've loaned them to two friends and they both now want a pair. If you want a comfortable hiking shoe that can go right through water and back to the trail, this is it. What a great shoe - finally!
