I have been through several pairs of shoes for kayaking. Hard to find good balance of low profile, drainability, good solid sole with traction, comfort. I have very sensitive feet and can feel every jagged stone I step on with neoprene shoes. The Son-R soles are perfect. Not too stiff so you can't s... Read More

    I know sizes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but the smallest size I'm able to wear on shoes it's a 7. I order a 7 on these and were still a tad bit big. It fit too loose. The strap was tighten all the way and still felt my foot loose. So, just because of the size I can't rate it any higher due to the face that I couldn't use them at all.

    Because I teach in the water 5 days a week, I stay in water shoes most of the time. However I also teach fitness on land and need to be able to go from water to land and have added support in my shoes. Because this shoe has a removable insole, which has proven good support, you can place your own arch support inside, or simply go with the current support of the shoe. I also like the strap and buckle, this gives additional support to your arches and keeps the shoe snug on your foot in water, or on land.

    they are difficult to put on but they stay on well even when walking through mud. Bought for walking in rivers with stony beds.

    Have used the Top-siders 4 times since receiving them. All kayaking trips of 10 - 30klm and am very impressed with the performance and the extra cushioning against the foot pegs, which was a major issue with my previous footwear.

    Initially found them slippery on the inner-sole when wet but with adjustments have alleviated this problems.

    I have waded along sandy beaches, walked over rocks (some oyster rock) and done some bush trekking with these so far and am very happy with the performance.

    Don't buy these if you're looking for a warm shoe though, especially when wet, but they do drain well and dried reasonably fast.

About Sperry

After a slippery boat deck nearly sent him overboard, lifelong sailor and inventor Paul Sperry created the first pair of Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes in 1935. Determined to find a solution for better traction, Paul carved small grooves into the bottom of his rubber-soled shoes, called “siping.” His idea for the prototype was actually modeled after his dog’s paws, which had evolved to navigate slick, wet terrain. Today, Sperry boots and shoes combine siped rubber soles for outstanding traction with advanced technical fabrics to keep out the watery elements. Over the years, Sperry boat shoes have even become the official footwear of the U.S. Sailing Team, the Shimano Fishing Tour and the U.S. Naval Academy.
