    Salomon Techamphibian 3 Water Shoes - Men's is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as great as I hoped... I had high hopes for these shoes! As a river instructor, I rely on solid footwear that I can wear day-in and day-out, that dry overnight, and that protect my feet from sharp rocks. These did not feel very sturdy, they take days to dry out, and the solomon lacing system is kind of annoying when getting in and out of kayaks all day. Basically, these are about as good as a pair of old running shoes in terms of being a water shoe. Waking up and putting on cold, clammy shoes is not ideal. I am looking for something better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable but fit could use work This is a good lightweight shoe for wet conditions. However, the cinch on the side doesn't hold the size I set, so the fit's not ideal. I got blisters just below my ankles from the slippage when I skipped socks. Not blisters when I wear socks. I like 'em a lot, but wish they held size adjustments at the heel better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far totally awesome. I needed something for summer wading and fishing in the creeks in Allegheny National Forest. These creeks are covered in round, flat, black rocks of various sizes, which are pretty slippery. When I was trying on water shoes at Pittsburgh REI, these were not the most comfortable, but I felt that the construction was superior to the other options that were available. They are all one piece and do not come apart, which is what I liked in the store. My primary boots are Salomon, which I had fitted to my feet in size 10.5, and I have wide feet. There was no 10.5 available in these shoes at the store, but I tried on an 11 and cranked everything way down, and it was just right width, so I think that 10.5 would most likely be too narrow for me. I took the shoes on some dry hikes around the forest and through two fairly extensive hikes in the creek beds and around wilderness areas, climbing over logs, and dry rocks. They worked fine with no socks the whole time, no rubbing, no blisters. The laces are a little long, since the shoe is kind of big, and i found that i could tuck them into the heel straps. I caught a couple sticks to them while hiking and did not notice any damage. Later on, I figured out that you can fold in the heel and use them as a slip on around the camp. I thought that they dried fine enough, even though I wasn't really expecting them to dry out before I jumped back in the water with them. I liked the fit with the lacing system cranked down on the top and heel, and walked significant distances with them wet and dry both underwater and on land. I definitely dig these shoes, and plan on keeping them unless I discover some major defect.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Briefly, I needed a closed toe water shoe for a 5 day river trip. I chose the Salomon due to its protective appearance. The shoe did well in all aspects, except comfort. The right shoe's fit was not true as compared to the left.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoes for water & everyday walking I've tried just using as a walking shoe, very comfortable. Could wear all day with out my feet getting tired. Wore on one hike and walked in water to test out worked well. I also was testing waterproof socks I purchased at REI. They worked good also. The best test is on Feb 21 with a hike into Aravaipa canyon. Wished the shoes came higher above my ankles I have recomended these shoes to several friends.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lace solution These are pretty good shoes if you use them correctly...not so much as Salomon wanted you to use them...but correctly. For example, I can see how these may cause some blisters as others have mentioned but they are very light and well-constructed so i bought these to use as short-wear, camp/river-crossing-when-hiking shoes and for that, they are perfect. As for the lacing system...Salomon would benefit from some r&d for sure, or just moving on past this design as they are flimsy and do loosen easily. I went old school and simply cut mine Salomon laces off and just added waterproof laces and tied them the good ole-fashioned way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best summertime BWCA footwear I've owned I have been canoing in the BWCA and Canada for many years and I've tried everything from army surplus jungle boots to sandals. I'm looking for footwear that is comfortable, meant to be underwater, and can dry in a reasonable time period. Those Keen sandals with the protective toe box are probably good for some, but I find them uncomfortable. So I've been using other sandals for most water use and a second set of footwear (like sneakers) for nighttime use. I bought this shoe and I find it able to both in the same day. They dry out nearly as fast as my Tevas and are more comfortable. They also provide superior protection for your foot. I have the 3rd generation and I didn't have any problems with the strap/cord. I left it loose most of the time, but tighten it down when going through mud or other challenging terrain. The are not fly proof, but have better protection than sandals and don't offer the flies as many protected biting spots. I found the sizes tend to run small. I'm usually an 11, but got a 12 and it feels a little narrow on my foot (which is on the wide side with a high arch). However, in the field I had no problems and found they were very comfortable wet or dry. Great in the water and over rocks. Good traction. They seem sturdy, but I've only put them through a week of use so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too bad I bought these primarily for wet wading while fishing Colorado's beautiful rivers. In the past I have used cheap-o hiking shoes but these seem to be just what I was looking for. Easy to put on,(even when still a bit damp from the previous day), fairly adjustable, and they look like they'll hold up.
