Rated 5 out of 5 by Dani27 Great product comfortable works well in water
These shoes are great. Wore them in the water in Aruba and after a rain storm. They are very comfortable, breathe easy, have a good grip for going on rocks and dry fast. I would definitely recommend this shoe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ECRizzo When backpacking, still need camp shoes
This is a great looking and fitting shoe. High quality and super comfortable. I tried to use it as both my water shoe and camp shoe on a recent backpacking trip. Unfortunately, the shoe didn't dry out and I had soggy shoes in camp. I'm sure they dry out quickly in hot weather/sun, but not so much in backcountry Yosemite in September.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butimbusy Best muddy hike yet!
I LOVE these shoes. I wanted hiking boots but chose these instead (dont know why) and boy am i glad i did! After 6 hours of hiking yesterday, my feet feel great today. I hiked up a rocky trail, ran down a paved road, then sloshed down a long steep muddy slippery trail to the bottom of a waterfall, then scrambled over the muddy rocks and waded thru the river. Then did it all back again in reverse. Boots wouldve been 10 tons full of water. These shoes held up, gave GREAT traction, drained quickly, and were even comfy to jog in. 10 Stars Columbia! You really made my day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gato93 Great water shoe
Wore these on a kayak trip down the Medina River last weekend. Very comfortable and great slip resistance in the water. The shoes and my feet both dried out quickly (I did not have prune feet when I got off the river six plus hours later).
Purchased in the Quarry/Candy Mint color.
Threw them in the washer when I got home and they look as good as new.

My wife loves this shoe!!! I had a pair of mens while back and told my wife about them, we do a lot of hiking and this shoe is perfect. I am a big Columbia fan, get their base layers, Omni freeze, and their heat boots and clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Birdnerd Weaker than the Drainmaker ll
Shoes do not seem as sturdy as the Drainmaker ll. The base and insert construction is the same, but the fabric seems weaker. The tongue on the ll's connected on both side to keep debris from getting inside, the lll's do not have that feature. I depend on these shoes for work surveys in the mangroves and in deep mud, and they are still the best for the job.

I love Columbia shoes. The fit is great. They are durable and stylish and the price is right. I highly recommend these. They are comfortable to wear and walk in.
