World Wide Sportsman® Copper River II Water Shoes for Men - Olive/Beige
These are SUPPER COMFORTABLE!! The enclosed toe make them ideal for fishing almost anywhere. I have found that many of these types of shoes are terrible for walking a long an incline but these have a nice aggressive flexible sol that really grips whether your in the water and out. The bungee type laces broke right away. No bit deal since they are more for show. I will be getting a couple of pairs when they go on sale again.

Shoes were not as comfortable as other reviewers. The shoes run tight. I had bad blisters on little toes from where the shoes rubbed. Wearing socks helped. I didn't want them to fall off, so I ordered a half size larger than gym shoes. Suggest getting a at least one size bigger size than regular shoes.The shoes worked well in sandy and muddy lake bottoms. No issues with durability. Just wish they were more comfortable.

Amongst The Worst
I bought these shoes to use while out fishing on my bass boat. So, I assumed that "water shoes" could be worn comfortably without socks. But after little more than an hour of wearing them, I could hardly stand the abrasive feel of the material on the upper side of my feet. Size-wise, they were a perfect fit. Nonetheless, after about an hour I found them to be very uncomfortable. So I chose not to wear them any longer because I was certain I'd wind up with blisters. Yup, later that day, I ended up with a serious blister on top of my left foot. After about a week, when the blister had mostly healed, I tried wearing them again with socks. But even with socks I could still feel the abrasiveness of the material on the tops of my feet. All in all, these rank among the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn. I would only recommend them to somebody I dislike very much. Period.

Best shoes ever!!!!
This year is my second year buying these water shoes. I have both the olive and blue colors. I wear the shoes whether in the summer or winter. They have awesome grip whether in rain or snow or ice. Even though they are really meant for water being made with the mesh, I really never had issues with the colder weather issues. Don't get me wrong when I say I bought the shoes 2 years in a row,the first pair is still completely intact, still has complete bottom sole and no tears or rips on the upper, I bought another pair this year in fear that they may stop making these shoes like manufacturers sometimes do to make room for new and different types of shoes. If you're looking for a sturdy, tuff water shoe that can really handle the elements then this shoe is for you. I am a girl, but wear the men's shoes because the colors the men's shoes come in I Iike better. Get them, you won't regret it!!!
