White water shoes are allways a delima, nothing is going to hold up for long. I have seen keens and nrs shoes blow up the fastest, 5 10s new shoes look great and have a ton of traction, they are a little bulky and may be hard to fit in your boat, I personally go with Merrell, they have great tread good support and last for a while. I have been on the same shoes scense June, that includes a trip to China, Peru, Argentina, and Chile. Lots of hiking around and also comercial raft guiding on the ark and gauley for 3 months, not bad for any shoe.
