Columbia Sportswear Drainmaker Fly Water Shoes (For Men)
Closeouts. When water drenches the deck, keep your feet in the Columbia Sportswear Drainmaker Fly water shoes. As the mesh upper and drainable midsole pump water out of the shoe, the Omni-Grip® advanced traction outsole actually gains grip as it gets wetter thanks to razor siping in the tread pattern.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by fly2mike from pacnw on Sunday, March 5, 2017I have only worn these for a little while around the house, so take this with a grain of salt, but these fit very nicely and appear to be well made. I like the well rockered and cushioned sole. I normally wear a size us mens 8 in sneakers and hiking shoes, and these fit me perfectly in an 8. My foot measures 25.5 cm. The toe box is wide enough to be comfortable, and they fit snugly at my narrow heel. I think these will be great for wearing bare footed in the summer for canoeing, rafting, etc..

Reviewed by Matthew Ream from Colorado on Tuesday, February 21, 2017I'll start by saying that I generally like Columbia footwear. Never had any problems, and don't anticipate them with this shoe (I haven't had it that long). The size (I wear a 12) is spot on, and it's solidly constructed. I bought this shoe, though, as a trail shoe and not primarily as a water shoe. Don't be fooled by some of the reviews: this is a water shoe through and through (and probably a great one), but it is NOT a running shoe or trail shoe. (I guess I shouldn't have given into the reviews that said it was a good trial shoe). That said, it can function as an "ok" trail shoe and even a running shoe from time to time. The reason I gave it four stars is the level of comfort. The shoe is mildly stiff, and the insoles provide little cushion. These shoes are made to get wet and drain quickly. With more cushion comes more drying time. So here's a possible solution for those people that want to use this as an all-round shoe (water shoe, trail shoe, running shoe): when needed as a water shoe, use the original insoles (which are perforated to allow water to escape [which actually escapes through a screen in the footbed as well as the mesh sides]), and when needed as a trail shoe or running shoe (when there's no threat of submersion), switch out the insoles for a nice cushioned pair. I think that will do the trick.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Yuankai from California on Friday, September 23, 2016It is water shoe for Zion Narrows. But I want use it for also hiking and trail running. Tried hiking more than 24 miles with elevation 2000 feet in 8 hours. it is very good no slip. it is very light. I also tried trail running 7 miles twice with elevation 2300 feet. All are good. there is no wear. Next week, we will use it for Zion narrows.
