A few months ago, I wrote a review of the TropicFeel Canyon Ultimate Travel Shoe 2.0 that was up on Kickstarter. Tropicfeel reached out to me and sent me a pair of their Tropicfeel Canyon shoes to review, so I wanted to share my experience with the shoes. They are also running a couple of promotions for the holidays with up to 20% off PLUS extra goodies if you order one of their Christmas packs. As always, links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.
Tropicfeel travel shoe features
I wanted to start The Tropicfeel Canyon shoe bills itself as “the all-terrain sneaker with 4-in-1 versatility: providing the benefits of aqua shoes, the comfort of sport shoes, the technical outsole materials of hiking shoes, and the styling of your favourite daily pieces.”

My Tropicfeel Canyon shoe review
As I mentioned, Tropicfeele sent me a pair of shoes to review. When I opened the regular packaging, I found that the shoes themselves came in their own smaller bag.
This bag had a closable fastener on the top. This would make sense if you were using these shoes as travel – it’s an easy way to take them along if you’re planning on going to a place where they might get wet or muddy.
The color I got was the standard Canyon Core Black, and the shoes came with 3 different types of shoelaces. So far I have stuck with the standard black shoelaces that they came with (pictured below)
Here are 2 pictures of the shoes on my feet.
One interesting note is that the largest size they come in is a European 47, which roughly equates to a US size 12. I normally wear a US size 13 shoe but I haven’t had any type of sizing problem.
I’ve been wearing these Tropicfeel Canyon shoes as my every day shoes for about a month or two and I’ve been impressed. The back and heel of the shoe is stretchy enough that you can easily slip the shoes off and on without untying the laces, and yet they still feel like they’re solidly constructed. They held up nicely even when I was on my feet all day walking around Universal Orlando for example. The one downside I’ve felt is that because they have mesh on the sides and top they aren’t great if it’s raining. They are designed to get wet and dry out quickly, but it only works if you’re wearing them with no socks or with socks that are designed to wick moisture away. I was wearing them with regular cotton athletic socks and when it rained my socks got pretty wet. Similarly in extreme cold or wind they don’t protect your feet from the cold as well as shoes with no mesh would.
Still, I’ve been enjoying wearing my pare of Tropicfeel Canyons
