The highly versatile shoes are made with hydrophobic canvas with stretchy Airmesh on top and holes at the toe and heel that allow water to escape. The Felxi-Grip soles are a non-marking rubber, that is flexible enough to wear on a SUP, and the shoes also come with two sets of flat, water resistant laces in two different colors, so you can switch up your style. The stretchy fabric and laces make for a secure fit that is true to size.

I wore a pair of Astral Loyaks for the first time from 5am -10pm at an all day SUP event. I was on my feet all day, in the ocean, on the beach and then with friends in the evening and they looked good and were extremely comfortable to the last. At the end of the day I washed them off with fresh water in the shower and they looked like new. I will definitely pack these shoes as a great all rounder on my next trip.
