Sperry Top-Sider has been working for a few years to get a line of kayaking ready shoes to market that they call “Son-R” where you can “See with your feet.” Dane, Emily, and I have been wearing the prototypes for the past two seasons and now have the production models. My favorites are the Bungee models that I can slip on quickly and are super grippy and comfortable with bare feet, but adjust instantly for wearing with a dry suit or pants. I hate struggling to get booties on and off and have them be too tight or too loose. These shoes are easy to get on and off, while standing up, and a quick pull on the bungee and they are locked down. They also fit in my Rock Star nicely, which is key, so I don’t have to change shoes for play boating or creaking.
Sperry asked us to make a video to introduce their customers to the Jackson family of paddlers (Dane, Emily, and I) and Dane just wrapped it up! Here it is:
Dane will be making 1 video each month, showcasing our exploits and paddling over the course of 2012 and 2013. Look for the next one in February!
See you on the water!
