Astral Brewer

I have a pair of the new Astral Brewer shoes on there way to me as I type. I’m looking forward to trying these out. They will have to be pretty good to beat the Five Ten Water Tennies.

The Astral Brewers were born on the banks of the Green River Narrows giving the people a versatile shoe from a kayaker’s point of view. The upper is built to last with many of the same durable and fast-drying materials as our lifevests including Cordura® and AirMesh fabrics. Our Natural Balance™ midsole securely cradles your foot, providing stable navigation through unpredictable rocky terrain. For the bottom we use state of the art Stealth® Rubber for unsurpassed traction on wet rocks. Technical performance and classic style are blended perfectly to bring you the shoe whitewater kayakers have been waiting for.

Brewer Features:

Lightweight, Minimalist
Construction (avg. 214 grams)
Durable Cordura® Upper
Breathable Airmesh vamp & tongue
Natural Balance™ Midsole (zero drop)
Drainage at front sidewall and Silt Dump at heel
Stealth® Outsole
