The ultimate men’s water, boating and casual shoe.
The Astral Loyak shoe was rated the 2018 “Best Water Shoe” by Outside Magazine in 2018. A low volume, high performance shoe providing durability, superlative grip, and supreme comfort on water or land. The self-draining, Flex-Grip™outsole promotes excellent balance and ground feel. Indestructible, hydrophobic canvas uppers are securely held to your feet with a stretch mesh tongue and flat laces provide a reliable fit.
As featured in Outside as Best Water Shoes of 2018.
Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component from the threads to the laces are chosen for the ability to shed water and hold up to consistent use in the water. Most designs have been engineered with special drainage to allow the water out without allowing in silt.
Building A Better Shoe
Astral is committed to sustainable business and products that last. In the most simple terms, we are athletes, artists and craftspeople. With your support we will continue to build the cleanest, most beautiful and highest performing products you can buy….
Our shoes are able to withstand the demands of both the river and the trail, but also pair nicely with your khakis or dress when the sun goes down. Whether you need amphibious shoes, canyoneering shoes, travel shoes, camp shoes, approach shoes, casual shoes or hiking shoes – we’ve got you covered.
In 2012 Astral started making footwear to support the growing community of river kayakers and paddleboarders that didn’t have adequate grip or dried quickly. It turns out that our fundamental approach to designing a shoe that provided the foot’s natural ability to maintain balance and grip in extreme places would also make a comfortable and versatile footwear for use on trails and around town.
Our reason for being is to make gear that elevates human’s experience in Nature, consciously made to preserve clean soil and water.
