What water shoes do you use? I rather not do barefoot with the sharp things in the river. I have kayaking boots, but the soles are probably too thick for good movement on a SUP. I want something to make cross-stepping and pivot turns easily.

I've been supremely happy with the traction these provide at any position on the board. I had used 5 Finger shoes but found my toes getting tired as I seemed to try to grip the mat with my toes. A cat with retractable claws I am not. The Brewers also dry in a flash and with Eurasion Water Chestnut seed pods all over, a watershoe with a sole is a must.

i've been wearing Merrell Water Torrents. They're barefoot style shoes without the separate toe thing like vibrams. they seem to do the job nicely.

up Target where they run about $15. on closeout. Picked up another pair, they work fine, and no more Keen's at $100. for me.
sneaker style versus slip on style|

The sneaker styles will provide some foot support, but they will raise the heel up about 1". They usually have deep traction tread, and are comfortable.
