Let's start at the bottom of the shoes and work our way up: Astral's G Rubber grip on the soles, similar to what you would find on the ever-popular Loyak, gives excellent traction even on the most slippery river rocks.
The footbed itself is level and the toe box is spacious, which allows for balance and increased stability. Additionally, the closed cell EVA foam is antimicrobial, to cut down on odors.
Next, the thwart pad, made of recycled materials, provides extra protection for when your feet get lodged underneath the thwart of the raft, along with adding structure to the sandal for more stability.
The adjustable heel strap gives you the flexibility to go down a half size, or to layer neoprene socks below!
