The result of combined R&D between Palm and Merrell, the Gradient is the most capable creek shoe ever built. Supurb grip on wet rock, excellent comfort even when wet and a low profile design for cramped cockpits.

Features include:

• Vibram super sticky rubber (climbing compound) outsole for superior wet traction with razor-cut siping
• Rubber overlays for durability and protection
• Padded ankle for comfort
• Synthetic leather overlays for wet performance
• Pull loops for ease of entry
• EVA strobel insole for sockless comfort
• Laces for secure fit and comfort on long portages
• Unlined airmesh upper keeps debris out and lets water drain freely
• Cushioning midsole for comfort
• Stretch neoprene collar keeps grit out and provides a secure fit.

I Am ony recomending this shoe because it does work and there is nothing else out there for someone with a larger foot. You would think that a company like Palm and or Merill would know by now that you don't sew a pull tab into the neopreme!!!!!!!!!!!!!! especially when there is beefier materal right there!!! ARE YOU KIDDING!! Started ripping the 2nd day, no shit. A hole developed between the top 2 stitches. Now both rears are in shambles. Trying to replace them from the USA, where they are not sold would have been a major hassel...
