If you're after the feeling of bare feet as you scramble along a riverbank, but want to protect your feet from sharp rocks, these thin soled water shoes are the ticket.
- Thin, abrasion-resistant stretch polyamide and breathable stretch mesh wraps your entire forefoot.
- Designed to prevent gravel and grit from getting inside. (KSO stands for Keep Stuff Out.)
- Single hook-and-loop closure.
- Non-marking Vibram® rubber soles are razor-siped for a sure grip.
Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
|2 - 2mm|
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
