World Wide Sportsman Amphibious Blue Water
Style: Performance wet/dry
Sole: Rugged, siped
Best Application: Wet or dry decks, wade-fishing, paddle sports, rafting
Top Line: The Amphibious is a boat shoe designed for paddle sports and wade-fishing. Rugged soles are built for quick drainage and superior traction on various surfaces.
Wins: It’s fast to drain and sticky on our puddle-jogging test. It didn't scuff a bit.
Losses: It was slower to dry than most of the competitors and, surprisingly, a long skidder in the puddle-surf test.
Finish Line: The side drains in the Amphibious Blue Water worked well and are less likely to capture silt when wading and more likely to jettison it, should it get in the shoe.
