Product Description

New colour arriving 2022 - until then we only have the remaining sizes as shown.

Need to stuff your feet in a tight kayak? Take a page out of the freestyle kayaking handbook and wear the NRS Freestyle Wetshoe. A favorite of playboaters, the Freestyle (used to be called the Desperado Sock) gives you warmth and protection in a compact, flexible package. 


  • NRS changed the name to reflect the new styling and features, but it's still your go-to footwear for tight cockpits and protection for put-ins and portages.
  • Say goodbye to cold, bruised, battered feet and ankles. Stretchy 3 mm Terraprene™ neoprene gives you lots of cushion and warmth.
  • Soft, fleece-like VaporLoft™ lining repels water and dries quickly for superior warmth and comfort.
  • Protective rubber on the toe and heel provides extra comfort in the boat along with outstanding durability.
  • 1.5 mm textured rubber sole won't add bulk, and still protects your feet both in and out of the boat.
  • A roomy, naturally shaped toe box frees your toes for all-day comfort.
  • Neoprene HydroCuff™ top grips your ankle, helping keep water out and warmth in.
  • Stretchy rubber support bands improve lateral stability without adding volume.
  • A handy webbing grab tab on the ankle helps you pull the sock on, but stays out of the way in your boat.

  2. NRS Freestyle Wetshoe 5 Star Review

    Have yet to use these out in the kayak or walking around on the shore rocks. Initial impression is that while it's something of a struggle to get them on (it does help to delve deep into the toe of the shoe and take the packing out first!), but once on felt secure on the feet, with virtually no slippage. Tested them out walking around the garden on the rock edges. Get good grip and feel.

  3. Wide feet bliss 5 Star Review

    The wide toe box makes NRS Freestyle Wetshoes so comfortable to wear.
    I paddle either a sea kayak or an ocean ski two or three times a week, all year round and my first pair have lasted a couple of years. They are still "OK" but I recently bought another pair just in case they get hard to find.

    Really enjoyed the NRS Wetshoe. They are designed and manufactured well and very comfortable to wear.
