When you're racing the incoming tide at the beach or running up a mountain trail laced with swollen streams, a hybrid land and water shoe like the Columbia Men's Drainmaker II Water Shoe is key to a successful workout. Highly breathable mesh uppers are comfortable next to your skin and the Omni-Grip rubber outsole is designed to give you a secure footing in and out of the water. Plus, the cushioned Techlite midsole has full length drainage ports to quickly evacuate water.
With bigger, more numerous drainage ports in the heel and forefoot, the Columbia Drainmaker II water shoe drains water 33% faster than its predecessor. Add siped lugs for increased traction on wet surfaces and new internal frame support and you’ve got an ideal lightweight, quick-drying shoe for staying safe and comfortable during extended waterside activities.

These shoes perform exactly as you would expect. They drain water as soon as you step on dry land. I wore them for the first time on a weekend floating/camping trip. I usually pack two pair of shoes, one to get wet and one to stay dry. I assumed since these shoes drained water I could lighten my pack and just wear the Columbias. I was wrong. Like I said the shoes drain water, BUT they do not dry out. You may not have a squishy shoe but it does stay damp. Don't get me wrong, I love the shoes and I will wear them until they fall apart, but I will continue to bring a pair of sandals for a dry pair of shoes. The shoes are comfortable and fit well. As far as sizing, a half size smaller than my Nike Shox was perfect. I guess this is because I do not wear socks with these shoes.
I got the platinum/sea colored shoe. They are super lightweight, extremely comfortable and look pretty cool. Shoes drain well, but my only complaint is that they do not dry as quickly as I would like. If its only warm out, it could take several hours to dry out. I was out in 100 degree, sunny weather where it took about 2 hours to dry completely. Would be great if they dried much quicker, otherwise I'm very pleased with these shoes.
Really good shoe if your feet are sweating, ventilation by mesh is really good. They are very comfy :)
Great shoe, very light and comfortable. Drains great, nothing bad to say.
