Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wetshoes I have a couple pairs of these wetshoes, one pair that is regular sized for my feet and one pair that are oversized (one size up) to wear with my drysuit. Well made, very comfortable and a decent sole for short walks over rough surfaces. I certainly wouldn't wear them for a mile hike unless I really was in a bind. They are well designed for kayaking with wear patches outboard on the edge near the sole and across the ankle. You can still feel your foot pegs though the sole and for me, that's a good thing. The only other feature that I might like is having them a bit looser across the top of my foot with an adjustable strap to snug them down. It would make getting in and out with the drysuit booties on a bit easier. But, this doesn't detract from how much I like them. I am an NRS fan as all of the products I have from them have been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for river canoeing. I bought these about a year ago. I've worn them often (though not as often as I would wish :) canoeing in a local river. They have been great, the best I've ever had. The zipper makes them easier to remove than most and esp. when worn with wet suit pants, sand and gravel don't get in. Even without the pants, they do a good job of keeping stuff out. I love mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Dry My son and bought these before 3 days of sea kayaking in cool waters. We agreed that they were the best pieces of gear that we had. Our feet weren't cold for even a minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for river kayaking Bought these to replace my sandals for kayaking on the river and needed some thing to keep the muck, sand, and rocks out. These work perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and warm The boots I purchased are actually a Woman's size 7 (not Men's). They are quite comfortable, and apparently quite warm compared with some of my friend's wet shoes. I am very pleased and also felt the price was reasonable.

Iam interested in purchasing your NRS Paddle wet shoes for the times I go kayaking. I wear a nine to nine and a half shoe depending on the manufacturer. These are men's sizes. Should I go with a nine or go to a ten?

Asked by: Dan 44

Would these work to use as water shoes? I go in the water looking for shells and shark teeth. All shoes I find are low and let the sand, pebbles, etc. get into my shoes. Thanks for the help.

Asked by: Railking
These shoes are a great choice and will meet your needs.

I have VERY wide feet. (6E) I'm planning on wearing these over a stockingfoot drysuit for winter kayak fishing. Do you recommend up sizing to accommodate this? Thanks.

Asked by: Topwaterbassyaker
​Yes, we recommend ordering two sizes up to accommodate for the width of your foot.
