Example: the Teva Omnium. According to the Teva website, the Omnium has "quick-drying materials to keep you comfortable. This shoe is great for water activities such as canoeing, and amphibious hiking." Nothing could be further from the truth. It can take up to 48 hours to dry these indoors.
Here are my paddling shoes:
Cold water: Chota Mukluks
NRS water shoes
I wear the $10 Crocs in warm weather. They provide a nice cushion for your heels. I rarely wear the short NRS water shoes because the transition from cold to warm weather (mukluks to crocs) happens so quickly, but they're necessary for sea kayaking.
