Our #1 bestseller. Loyak™ is a minimalist, high performance shoe providing durability, exceptional grip, and sensational ground feel on land and water.

These shoes are so comfortable. Id rather be barefoot but if I have to wear shoes, these are it! I wear them everywhere. I hike in them, climb in them, beach in them, they are always with me. I love the wide toe box and the barefoot feel. The style is classic and I get compliments on them constantly. Could a more perfect shoe exist? I say no way!

These are perfect if you appreciate a "foot shaped shoe" that respects your natural form. I originally bought the Loyak as a water shoe and quickly found they can be used casually just as often. The wider toe box allows my toes to spread out, and the level footbed feels natural while providing just enough cushion to keep me moving comfortably all day. I like the breathability and water readiness, and they fold up very small for travel. Versatile and stylish. Highly recommended!!!

I have worn Astral Loyak's exclusively for close to ten years now and in my opinion, there is no more comfortable shoe out there. They are minimal enough to allow for natural foot movement but have enough cushion to be able to stand all day long. And yes, I wear them kayaking too.

BALANCED GEOMETRY™

Zero drop, Level Footbed® + a wider toe box respects your foot's natural position while increasing balance and stability.

G.15 RUBBER™

Sticky yet durable G.15 Rubber™ + Flex Grip™ outsoles provide exceptional grip on wet and dry surfaces. Non-marking.

THE BEST TRAVEL SHOE ... WHETHER YOU’RE ON OR OFF THE WATER! The Loyak is the only shoe I have ever found that is lightweight, comfortable, stylish, and fast drying.This sporty multi-tasker pairs perfectly with shorts or swim trunks yet is dressy enough to wear out for dinner or drinks with casual pants. I don’t leave home without them, and I usually travel with two pairs!
