Before the summertime is over, many people might ask themselves: what are the best shoes for canoeing? Well, it’s definitely not shoes for Zumba. There might be some brands of specialty shoes for canoeing, but not everyone is going to need to have shoes like that in order to really be able to enjoy canoeing. People just need to think about the problems that canoeing is likely to cause, and the probable solutions to those problems.
People sometimes get sore after sitting in one position for a long time, even if they are doing something active with their arms in a canoe. People don’t need running shoes for a canoe. They need shoes that are comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time in a seated position. They also need shoes that are flexible for them to wear, or they are going to start to feel fairly stiff soon enough, especially during the points where they will have to put pressure on their feet during the canoeing trip.
When people change position during their canoeing trips, they will use their feet for support and balance. They will also do so on the sides and bases of the canoes, and the sides and bases of canoes slope. This can put a lot of pressure on a person’s feet. People can also sometimes strain their feet, given the strange ways that they will move in situations like these. Shoes for a canoeing trip need to be flexible and soft, or people are going to have a hard time with them.
Ideally, these shoes should be resistant to low temperatures and water. Otherwise, people are going to become uncomfortable very quickly. It’s wet in canoes and around canoes. Getting actual water shoes is probably unnecessary. However, getting shoes that provide some level of protection from the water can still make a huge difference for a lot of people on a comfort level.
