Astral Loyak Water Shoes
Best Water Shoes of 2022 - GearLab
Don't be fooled by the casual, stylish looks of the Astral Loyak. These are high-performing water shoes with a well-designed, sock-like fit, superb drainage, and sticky, siped outsoles. They are super comfortable on foot, whether in the water or on land. Their thin, neutral soles have a great ground...

Selk’bag Lite 6G
Warm
Being cold in an old house, I used to wear 5 layers to be in the bed, with a thermal blanket plus the portable oil heater. I bought this to be worn at home, and with the feet attached, it keeps me warm that I only wear lightly inside. I never tried for outdoor use and don’t intend to. I am small siz...

Fit

Astral Loyak Water Shoes
Measure your foot, order true size (may be smaller than street shoe size)
I typically wear street or hiking shoes that are size 9-9.5, but I intended to wear the Loyak's without socks and wanted a tight fit so I measured my foot and purchased the equivalent true size (8, in this case). The fit around my foot is perfect and my toes are not jammed against the front of the s...

Selk’bag Lite 6G
THIS IS GREAT!!
I am going to use this for stargazing. It fits exactly to the height, so be sure and check that. I am 140 pounds and 5.5 ft tall. I bought a medium and it just fits. Fast ship and well packaged. I am very satisfied with this company and their product. It is lightweight and not super thick. I haven't...

Astral Loyak Water Shoes
Meets Expectations
Got these near the end of the summer for use while boating and in/near the water. My experience so far: Fit/wearing: The shoes run small. I sent the originals back and then got the next size up. They are designed without a tongue and so are tricky to put on especially at first. Slide your foot all t...

Selk’bag Lite 6G
Freaky awesome!
The media could not be loaded. This is really fun and cool! I was worried it would be too small for me, I’m 5’3” and 155. This felt like it was made for me! I’m attaching a video of me getting into it, and a picture of my son wearing it at a sleepover. He’s 5’6” and weighs around 125. I’m now trying...

Astral Loyak Water Shoes
Opening too small for foot
I ordered these in an M9 and an M10. I usually wear an M9. The opening of these shoes is so tight I couldn't even get my foot in them when I tried on the M9s. I did try them on with the back folded down so I could put them on slipper style and there was plenty of room for my feet, it's just the open...

Selk’bag Lite 6G
Weird sizing
I wanted to love this so badly but I just couldn't. I don't understand their sizing! I'm 5'7" and the medium was made so short and awkwardly that I could barely sit down. It would not have been comfortable. And I'm a fairly slim woman. I thought maybe if I unzipped the booties it would fit better, b...

Astral Loyak Water Shoes
weird blueish is what astral calls gray

Selk’bag Lite 6G
Wearing this around the house all winter.
Comfortable and warm. I just love it. I wish, however, that the outside fabric were stronger. It's fine inside the house, but going outside to do minor chores has caused some tears in the material.
