I really have a thing for purple and these shoes are a wonderful rich and bright purple color. Even better, they are very comfortable, fit my feet just right, feel light, are great to walk in. I have not tried any of the water wading stuff yet, and did not buy them for that reason, so I can't testif...

I bought these as a gift for a fellow Kayaker with diabetes. So far she absolutely loves them. People with diabetes have to be careful with their feet and she loves to Kayak. She was worried about her feet staying wet after walking in water and something happening when walking. She has not gotten to use them Kayaking YET but she said the fit and feel are great.

These shoes did it all ... went from rafting through muddy waters to hiking in mud and clay, and back to the river, without strain on my feet. Gave good support for off-trail hiking through slickrock and rubble. They are uniquely ugly (shoes only a mother could love, to paraphrase an old saying) but wear perfectly.

Truly, I did not buy these to wear in water, except perhaps on a rainy day. They are attractive and very roomy without being big. I don't like the shoe laces, though. THey are an off white and look dirty. That's what stops me from giving it 5 stars.

I have been wearing these shoes for 2 weeks. What I like about them is that they are lightweight. They have a good heel support. The fit is true to size. I wear an 8.5 to 9 in women's and ordered a 9. The shoestrings are a good length and stayed tied. (some don't)
I have not really used these as water shoes. I am wearing them as an everyday, lightweight tennis shoe. I live in hot, dry, Arizona. I will be taking a fishing trip to Alaska in August so wanted these to wear on the fishing boat. I believe they will be great for that.
Some final comments on the shoes:
I find them very comfortable and well padded.
I wear with socks but probably could be worn without.
They have small vent holes that go all the way through so they breathe and I suppose this is so water flows through.
Shipping was fast!

Yes, they are tubular laces and they do need to be tied. At the time I wrote my review, I had bought 2 pairs. Since then I bought all 3 colors! I get complements with every pair I wear! True to size, roomy toe comfort, awesome shoes!

I wear these shoes primarily to gather shells along beaches. I also wear them when boating. I wear very lightweight socks These shoes are comfortable and stylish and could be worn for any casual outing. They are especially nice because they are vented and dry very quickly.

You don't have to wear socks, but I do because of neuropathy in my feet and I need the softness of a sock between my skin the inside of the shoe.

For most brands the difference between men's and women's shoes is between 1.5 -2 sizes.

I can't say for sure. I don't know if a man's shoe is wider than a woman's. Mine are tight with a thin sock and I usually wear 8.5. But they are comfortable and give me good support in the water.
