I'm an avid canoer, kayaker and fisherman, spending a lot of time in and out of the boat. Other Keen models allow too much dirt and debris to enter the shoe due to the open design, which is extremely annoying and uncomfortable. I've used NRS shoes before and these Keens provide more foot protection, but a bit less traction. Drying is good, but as with any with any neoprene shoe, if you wear it all day, you will need to remove them to allow your feet to dry for awhile or trench foot is possible. Sizing was a bit off for me, I have a narrow foot and normally wear a 9 to 9.5, for these I wear an 8.

This is a great boot for spring creek fishing when waders are not called for. They offer great toe and sole protection. Used the boots for three days straight without any stone bruses or stubbed toes while fishing some rough bottom creeks. They filter out fine gravel and debris that ususally ends up inside of most water shoes. Soles are stickey enough to give good traction.
