The ASTRAL HIYAK is a canoe shoe that sits above the ankle and stabilizes the ankle. At the same time, however, it remains so agile that it can find space even in narrow kayaks. In addition, the Astral Bootie Hiyak is probably one of the safest kayak shoes on the market: the lacing is almost completely covered, the knot is double fastened and covered by a velcro closure. This not only ensures a good fit, but you can no longer get trapped with the shoelace. An important feature especially for white water SUPs but also for safety-conscious kayakers. The materials used are robust and quick-drying. The neoprene is therefore deliberately not used. 3mm airmesh provides sufficient insulation. As usual, the Astral sole is "super sticky".
