Body Glove 3T Barefoot Max – Reviews

Solid, but one noticeable issue

Having got these for my brother, this is his review of these shoes…Now, size wise these fit mostly true to size, they have a smidge more toe room than I need. These are minimalist shoes, so don’t expect any crazy support beyond what thin cushioning is in the base of the shoes. The actual rubber sole seems durable, but I will update later on its longevity. The sole feels decently gripy, and comes up on on sides which will help prevent foot slipping and give a bit more protection. The three toe design is a different feel, but not a bad one. Getting the shoe on isn’t hard, but it’s no slip on either. The adjustment strap and cord do a decent job keeping the foot secure and the larger debris out. Something I was looking quite intently for. Sand will of course still get in, but will drain out with the water. The drain holes are surprisingly a metal grating as shown, which is a nice feature. They drain water decently, and dry reasonably well. The shoe is sufficiently comfortable, save one detail. As shown in the photo, the rim of the shoe has an exposed inner seam. This seam is pretty abrasive, and is my only large complaint. (It needs to be blind stitched) While not a deal breaker for the 30ish dollars they were bought for. This seam could cause noticeable discomfort when worn for extended periods, especially when tightened. Some socks could get around this. But it’s still a mark against the design. Overall I’d say they’re pretty solid, but it’s one immediate design flaw brings it down.

Great water shoe

This is my second pair that I purchased as a backup in case they ever discontinue. My first pair is 2 years old, very comfortable and use them 1 or 2 times a week during the summer waverunning and kayaking. Soles offer protection from stone driveways and shells. Comfy enuff to walk around town to grab a snack after docking waverunner. Shoes drain great and do everything a water shoe should do. I usually wear a 9 1/2 and the size 10 fits perfectly. I rinse in fresh water after every wear and they haven’t gotten stinky.
