NRS Desperado Shoes
Confidence on the water is as important as comfort on your feet and the NRS Desperado Shoe provides both. These warm and flexible boat shoes have a low profile and fit easily into todays low volume cockpits while providing plenty of traction for put ins and portages. The 3 mm Terraprene neoprene with spandex exterior keeps feet warm and cozy with enough stretch to allow ample movement over the long haul. The elastic pull cord with barrel lock system makes closure a cinch, while the Toughtex in high wear areas provides extra padding, and the plastic shim in the sole adds protection when climbing over sharp rocks. To top it off, the recycled rubber on these great water shoes adds traction and protection while putting a smaller footprint on the environment that we all enjoy so much.

Reviews - NRS Desperado Shoes
comfy and functional paddling shoe
After trying several shoes over the last 7 or 8 years, these are the best we've found yet in this price range. Shoe is extremely comfortable, snug and cozy, but also has a great grip and supports the foot well in all kinds of situations. They keep the feet quite warm in cold water. Two of us bought the shoe and ordered half size up, which worked very well for us. We both have high arches and slightly wide upper foot. When assessing the right size, keep in mind a snug fit is desirable. Will drfinitely recommend these and buy them again.
My normal shoe size is 11. My toes were pushed to the end and foot overspilling the side. I have a Florida buddy that fishes in them daily. He loves them. I believe I will as well when sized properly.
NRS Desperado Shoe - Great In & Out of Boat
This is a great shoe. It is comfortable enough to wear in and out of the boat, providing enough traction to scout the river.
