Soft Science is a new company catering to anglers who are looking for another option when it comes to shoes to wear on the water. The Fins shoe from Soft Science offers a boat shoe style look with the ultimate in comfort.
The Fin from Soft Science is the brain child of Scott Seamans and John Duerden. Scott Seamans is a founder and chief designer for the popular Crocs brand of shoes and John Duerden was the former President and Chief Operating Officer of Reebok, and a former CEO at Crocs. Scott and John set out to design shoes that would take comfort casual footwear design to a new level. Shoes that from both technical and style standpoints would be different from anything else out there. Shoes that would take an uncompromising stand on comfort, but at the same time be stylish and fun, in a funky sort of way.
The Fin shoe from Soft Science definitely hit the mark. While the shoe may seem a little bulky in appearance, it makes up for that and more with how comfortable this shoe is. Whether fishing from my kayak or my SUP, the Fin shoe from Soft Science provided all day comfort on my feet. The insole is made up of Trileon, a closed cell copolymer. The insole is also removable and washable! The upper part of the shoe is a mesh, with a self-drainage system in the front lower for getting in and out of the kayak without tons of water on your deck.
The Fin from Soft Science is extremely light and breathable for those long hot summer fishing trips. Cleans up is also a breeze, as I normally rinse off the shoes with the rest of my fishing gear. Having a shoe that can withstand the abuse of kayak fishing and saltwater is of the utmost importance with me. The Soft Science Fin gives me the comfort for standing or wading around while kayak fishing and SUP angling. It also dries quickly which means I don’t have soaked or soggy toes the rest of the day.
