Kokatat

Portage

Weeds, rocks, branches, and stumps line the route to and from your choice creeks, rivers, lakes, and beaches, so Kokatat gave the new "Portage" Neoprene Shoe a sturdy insert and grippy outsole. And since you're main goal is to keep your feet warm when you're in the cockpit, Kokatat crafted the Portage shoe with three-millimeter double-lined neoprene.

Features:

  • Covered lace design utilizes a zippered flap to eliminate snags from rocks, twigs, or other gear
  • Vulcanized heel and toe cap offer protection
  • Fiberboard insert in the rubber outsole offers stability while walking on uneven surfaces

Specs:

  • Material: [body] neoprene (3mm), [heel counter, toe cap] vulcanized rubber
  • Reccommended Use: Paddling
  • Manufacturer Warranty: lifetime

Kokatat Portage Kayaking Shoes

I purchased these after having used a vast array of different types of water shoes, sandals, etc. Out of everything I have used, I have been most pleased with these shoes. They are very comfortable and lightweight. The traction they provide is exemplary and help while standing in a kayak. The shoes are waterproof and so eliminate wrinkly, water logged feet. The shoes are snug around the ankle area, making them a bit difficult to put on. However, I suppose this is necessary to keep the water out. As mentioned already, once the shoe is on, they are very comfortable and almost feel as if you are barefoot. I personally would like to see more color options, as this only had one. Overall, I am pleased and would purchase these again when the time comes.

    • 303 UV (for plastic) as well. I've owned may sailboats (up to 34 ft) and their gellcoat, plastic and fabric sprays are the way to go.
