The Astral Porter Women's Water Shoe looks like a classic boat shoe but performs like a high tech explorer, which might be confusing at first. Should you wear it to work' Should you wear it on the water' Around town' The answer, simply enough, is yes. The tough Cordura nylon upper is decked out with Airmesh at the tongue and vamp for ventilation and drainage, and has drainage ports at midfoot so you don't feel like you're walking around in puddles all day. The laces run all the way around the heel for security, and the EVA midsole provides loads of cushioning for day long adventures. To keep you upright on rocking decks and slick rocks, the Porter is finished off with a G15 high friction rubber sole, which has tons of surface area for increased friction and razor siping for unbeatable traction.
