NRS Kinetic Water Shoes

NRS Kinetic Water Shoe - youtube Video

I have been looking for a kayaking shoe that I could wear driving to and from the launch location, hike trails, walk the beach, was comfortable and didn’t move around on my feet. I have tried several inexpensive shoes, but they just didn’t work all that well out of the kayak. Enter the NRS Kinetic!

These shoes are great for tight kayaks, or even to feel more in touch with your SUP board. Neoprene is excellent for colder waters, but I have had no issues with them in 85-degree oceans. These offer superior protection yet very flexible. The upper and insole are constructed with 3 mm Terraprene neoprene with titanium from heel to toe. The 1.5 mm textured rubber sole doesn’t add any bulk, yet still protects your feet both in and out of your yak.

The toe box is naturally shaped and provides a roomy, non-binding fit. Stretchy rubber bands improve lateral stability and help hold the shoe to your foot. There is a shoe-top drawcord that keeps your foot snug and secure. Armor patches guard the upper against abrasions and add even more protection for your foot.

    All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, Il give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life who have subscribed to our newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
