Land, water, or a little mix of both. The Vasque Women's Lotic Water Shoe is down for narrow slot canyons, rough portages, and rock strewn trails. The enclosed polyester mesh and synthetic upper keeps out sand, pebbles, and dirt when you walk over a wide variety of surfaces, and the built in drainage ports facilitate quick drying and ventilation. The shoe's Immerse 360 last is slightly asymmetric in shape, accommodating those with a higher arch and securing the foot with a narrow heel pocket. Cushioning your every step, the molded EVA footbed absorbs shock when you walk over rough, off camber terrain and rock strewn streams alike. Featuring a Vibram Slickrock sole with Idrogrip compound, these water specific shoes grip wet and slippery stream beds, shorelines, and rocks. The sole's Idrogrip compound has a high coefficient of friction on wet surfaces, meaning the Lotic's sole provides sure footed grip and stability when you need it most.
