I enjoy various waterborne sports - most of all rowing but also kayaking, rafting and of course mucking about along coastlines, rockpooling and the like. I've owned a few pairs of shoes designed to be 'amphibious' and so have some experience of what is required for them to be any good. These Swiftwater sandals from Crocs tick all the main boxes for me. Positives include :
+They are light and comfortable on land and in water.
+They hold the foot well thanks to the mesh upper and velcro closure.
+They offer a little protection from bumps and scrapes to the tips and sides of toes
+They dry fast
+There are no prominent seams to cause rub points (I have hiked some gentle trails in them with and without socks all in comfort)
+They feel fairly sure-footed on submerged rocks (as well as most things I've tried)
+Being so light (UK size 8 shoes, dry, weigh 204g each!) they are a great option for backpackers, thru-hikers and trekkers as a spare pair of footwear to escape from their boots
+They look good and, if you wear a plain black short-cut sock you'd not notice they were sandals at first glance.
+Outstanding value for money at the current offer from Amazon - could buy two pairs of these to fit my odd feet for less than it costs for some of the alternatives in this class of shoe.
There are a few areas I could see improved - partly because my favourite shoe that I've used for amphibious purposes in the past was the Salomon Techamphibian 3, Men's Hiking Sandals and these trade off the lightness in favour of a more durable and structured sole unit and fully adjustable fit. Hence they aren't quite the same kind of beast but I'd suggest the Crocs:
- could do with a little more durable and puncture-resistant sole (I know this is a Crocs selling point - but it's also a reason I haven't bought any!)
- would benefit from some means of adjusting the fit along the shoe. I
- need some way of locking down the velcro closure as in water this can be pulled open a little too easily.
I've had a really good opportunity to test these lately as I've been using them in 36C heat walking around town and on low elevation hikes, In 8C water with a wetsuit sock on underneath whilst rafting and I've also ridden my bike in them. They are an excellent all-rounder and at a very reasonable price so I can thoroughly recommend them.
I do a fair amount of travelling and a lot of walking, so for the summer months I need something comfortable that will let my feet breathe.
I was impressed with the number of positive reviews for the Crocs Swiftwater sandals, so with a holiday on the horizon, I ordered knowing that returns were free if I didn't get on with them. While comfort is probably the most important factor for me, I also wanted the sandals to look reasonable and on pulling them out of the box, was impressed. I really didn't like the contrast stitching or edging on the other colours, so opted for the Brown (Espresso) which I think was a really good choice. The stitching is a lighter brown than the body of the shoe, but there is nothing garish or brash about any of it. Even the Crocs branding is fairly subtle. I particularly wanted a closed-toe sandal and the Swiftwater sandal offers really good protection in this respect. The way the toe-protector curves around the front of the sandal and stitches to the top of the body of the shoe leaves it looking slightly bulbous, but honestly, once I had the sandals on I really didn't see it as an issue.
I did a few walks in them before my holiday and had absolutely no issues with blisters or rubbing of any kind. I always take a size 9 whatever type of shoe I'm wearing and I ordered a 9 in this case. They fitted perfectly so I really wouldn't worry about sizing up or down. The velcro strap across the top of the sandal appears to be very well made and secures the shoe perfectly. I did a fair number of miles on holiday (in high temperatures) and didn't have a single issue with my new sandals. They're extremely comfortable, offer really good support, keep the feet reasonably cool, appear to be very well made and actually look quite stylish (at least, the Brown Espresso does), unlike traditional Crocs which I wouldn't want anyone to see me in.
I can't comment on the longevity of these sandals as I've only had them a few weeks, but my early impressions are extremely positive and I would expect them to wear very well. In short, for just under £30, they fulfil all of my requirements and while I may not love them as much as my Ecco sandals (yet!), I would happily recommend the Crocs Swiftwater sandals to anyone. On the basis I don't have a single complaint, I can only give them five stars.
at 426g and easy to pack down flat, they fit nicely in my rucksack. and of course, they are super comfortable to wear.
As for SIZING, I would normally wear a size 9.5 UK size/44 in Europe size, I ordered size 9 and they fit perfectly. So yes, they do come up a bit on the big side as other people have mentioned.
I am a size UK 8 to 8.5 and the 42-43 were the correct size for me.
The fabric uppers seem comfortable and will expand if you feet swell in heat
They are comfortable and practical for any activity involving water as they dry quickly.
Sizing is accurate.
Also, as they don’t look like crocs my image conscious son will allow them to adorn his giant feet over the summer - bonus
The sole is thinner and firmer than regular Crocs but they are still light and comfy as ever.
The sole is firm and the protection around the toe area is very good.
The quality appears very good, time will tell how durable they are
The Croslite(TM) sole is very good for people suffering with orthopaedic issues. very comfortable and gives the perfect amount of support for your foot.
Strong robust design water repellent repels dust and dirt easily. Very easy to clean.
Fastens securely around the ankle, giving support and stability feeling safe and comfortable around the foot.
Nothing but good things to say about this pair of sandals.
as soon as my friends saw them they to bought a pair the same day.
They have passed the test.
Quite comfortable but they will improve over a few weeks, they will be a good general wear summer shoe if we ever get one. Good shoe for the beach and I would swim in them if the Velcro doesn’t come loose as it has with other shoes when in the water.
only minor complaint, if you go on a gravelly beach and go in the water for some reason these shoes seem to suck up small rocks, other than that, excellent!
