What shoes do you wear on a canoe trip?
Paddling activities always mean wet feet; for daytime paddling sport sandals are a popular choice, as are neoprene booties. For land or camp wear, bring a pair of stiff soled light hiking boots or shoes.
What is the correct footwear for a long canoe trip or kayak trip?
Neoprene booties Neoprene river boots are popular among sea kayakers and whitewater paddlers, good for shorter aggressive pursuits in icy water. Some trippers find them impractical for longer trips because they take a long time to dry out and most lack ankle support.
Are Crocs good for canoeing?
Crocs make great kayaking shoes. They’re comfortable, breathable, and have holes that drain water very well. Also, Crocs have a strap on the back that helps to keep them on your feet. And the material Crocs are made of lets them float, which is great should they slip off and fall in the water.
