NRS Crush Watershoe

The new Crush Watershoe from NRS are now available. This looks a pretty good piece of gear and will be worth checking out if you are in the market for a new pair of shoes and were considering a set of Astral Brewers for example.

We are looking at getting hold of a pair for review here at Unsponsored HQ.
