The ultimate marathon/sprint kayak footwear.

If you designed a shoe for kayak racing what would you need?
A Flexible sole, that's hard enough to run over stones on those muddy portages, with enough grip to keep traction on mud.

Low profile sides, so it doesn't impede steering and give maximum foot room

Low profile heel, for the best ergonomic position in the boat.

Low profile fabric top, so pullbars can be used.

Oh and machine washable would be nice for when they get too muddy or stinky?

Well this shoe does all that!
