Astral Loyak Mens Shoe

Regular price $199.00


The ultimate shoe for days on the water.


A low volume, high performance shoe providing durability, superlative grip, and supreme comfort on water or land.

The self-draining, Flex-Grip™outsole promotes excellent balance and ground feel. Indestructible, hydrophobic canvas uppers are securely held to your feet with a stretch mesh tongue and flat laces provide a reliable fit.

Weight: 209 grams

Flex Grip Outsole

  • Thus rubber allows excellent flexibility and sensory feedback for heightened grip and balance. Maximised surface area for high friction on smooth surfaces. Divided lugs for substantial grip on loose dirt. Razor Siping maximises edges that bite into surfaces upon flexion.

Water Ready

  • All Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component, from the thread to the laces are critically evaluated and chosen for its ability to hold up after constant soaking, to shed water, and not to accumulate funk. Many models have engineered drainage for water to come out while minimising entry of silt.

Balanced Geometry

  • Astral believes that a foot's position in a shoe should be similar to when barefoot. This allows excellent balance and a biomechanically natural lifestyle.
  • Footbeds are essentially level (only 1mm drop from heel to toe) and provide medium arch support. Tapered instep and heel area for better foothold and control. Wide forefoot allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.


  • This G compound is formulated for premium grip while also providing excellent abrasion resistance. Its low durometer means the rubber is softer and therefore conforms well to the ground.
  • Intended Use: Water, Casual, Boat, Travel
  • Uppers: Hydrophobic Canvas for durability with stretchy Airmesh at vamp and tongue for secure fit and ventilation. Two sets (different colors) of flat, water resistant laces provided.
  • Midsole: 7mm thick, 45C closed cell EVA foam.
  • Outsole: Flex-Grip™ is non-marking, draining, super flexible, razor siped , and has 3 mm lugs. Made with G.15™; our sticky, high abrasion compound.
  • Foot to Ground Distance: 12mm heel, 11mm ball
  • Weight/shoe: Men's 9 = 209g

              Footwear Sizing

              True to size in length but runs narrow in width. To accommodate a wide foot, we recommend going up a half size. Size up a full size if you require cold weather layers. This shoe has a comparable fit to the Rassler 2.0 and Rambler.

              Rob G.
              Perfect low volume whitewater shoe

              Fits nicely in my rewind when other running shoes didn't. Comfortable, good grip but wouldn't expect them to last forever if being abused as they're light material

              Liza M.
              Astral Loyaks

              My husband absolutely loves them. Quick draining and no more silt in his kayak shoes.

              He says they stick to rocks like nobodies business.

              Why choose us?
