On a recent fishing trip in the Florida Keys, we spotted guys wearing running shoes in and around the water. We figured they could do without the Soggy Shoe Syndrome, so we created a hybrid shoe that combines the lightweight comfort of a running shoe with the quick-dry capabilities of a water shoe. The upper features breathable open cell mesh with a durable TPU toe cap, while the Techlite™ midsole has built-in drainage ports in the heel and forefoot to allow water to instantly escape. Wet/dry traction is assured by a siped, lugged outsole with Omni-Grip® Wet Grip rubber for sure footing on slick surfaces.
