I’m looking for summer weight water shoe with as little neoprene as possible but with a fairly rugged sole, low cut, I have a bit of room so I dont have to be a minimalist but nothing sneaker like. Any suggestions? Thank’s, Adam

I can recommend the Nike ACG "Air Tokateegee" (or something like that) pretty strongly. I got a pair from some guy that bought the wrong size, and they are good stuff. Aggressive sole, pointy rocks don’t hurt my feet, mid-cut height, nice closure system makes it feel secure and supportive. Kind of like a hybrid between a running shoe and a climbing slipper.

I guess the NRS attack shoes are sweet, but not as sweet as these. The Lotus/Patonia booties were always nice, but bulky. If you can fit sandals, nothing compares to Chaco Sandals. They are my favorite pair of shoes for everything (except jamming into my playboat).

I second Bridog’s suggestion–I got the Nike ACG Tokatee this summer and love it. I ordered via http://www.altrec.com.

NRS Desperado Shoe; 3mm rubber sole. Plenty of use since Spring, 2003 and no signs of wear (even with numerous trips to the washing machine). Great traction on wet rocks and protect the soles nicely on long hikes from the take-out.
