Oh yes. If you are planning on doing The Narrows, hiking to the Colorado River from the campground at Havasu, or any other hike that involves walking through water, you need the correct shoes. Your feet get you to your destination and back; you have to take care of them. The shoe pictured above does three things:
1. Protects your feet from rocks and other harmful things found under the water.
2. The sole provides traction while walking in water.
3. Drains water quickly.
The good news is one pair will probably last you for years. And right now Campmor is having a great sale on these shoes. Check it out here.
