Since you guys know everything..... :)

On our trip to Puerto Rico the wife and I are going to take a jungle tour that will include hiking on trails and walking up and down stream and waterfalls....


Can anyone suggest some GOOD but reasonably priced hiking/WATER type shoes that would work well for the above??

The tour will include zip lines too, but I guess the shoes don't matter much for that....

I have already ordered my Maxpadition Fat Boy for the trip!! :righton:

I bought a pair of Merrell Maipo water shoes. They aren't hi-tops, but should do OK. I wore them for a week at the Outer Banks, and had no complaints.

Keens. Great footwear for the described use.

I have a pair of Keens, they dry out pretty well, but If I know I'm getting my feet wet I lot I wear good old GI Jungle boots.

My wife has a pair of Merrel Ultra Sports that she absolutely loves. She wears them all the time they are her favorite shoes. We do a lot of kayaking and they seem to be holding up well.

These are worth a look:

I have been using a pair of Odhins while hiking in the Everglades and they work quite well for me.
