ASTRAL Releases Women's Specific Loyak Shoe for Summer


The number of women participating in water sports is on the rise and ASTRAL is answering their call for technical yet feminine and stylish footwear. Enter the Loyak, a low-volume, high performance boat shoe that’s perfect for SUPing, kayaking, and just simply LIVING. Currently on the shelves, the Loyak provides the highest level of durability and grip with a casual and comfortable style for on or off the water.



Weight: 6.35oz MSRP: $79.95

The Loyak’s unique Lilo construction with a 1000 Denier CORDURA ® Nylon upper offers supreme drainage, is quick drying, and lightweight. The outsole is equipped with ASTRAL’s proprietary, high-friction G.15 rubber that provides maximum rubber-to-granite surface contact area, but without marking up a SUP or boat.

“We saw a tremendous opportunity in the women’s category for technical yet stylish aquatic footwear,” notes ASTRAL’s Brand Manager, Bryan Owen. “The Loyak offers women a shoe designed for their specific fit and performance needs on the water that can transition to fashionable everyday-wear.”

The Loyak is currently available at specialty retail shops or can be found on ASTRAL’s top caliber team of female SUP athletes including Natali Zollinger, Brittany Parker, Harmony Dawn, and Nikki Gregg. For more information visit or contact Mandy Giles at
