Because I had a major issue with reeky water shoes, I am considering getting different water shoes. I came across some that are nyloprene instead of neoprene. They are not as warm, but in a lot of situations I don't need warm. Say hiking a trail that crosses a river multiple times. Or portaging when I want to get out into the water, wade ashore, portage, and then wade into the water as part of getting back in the boat.
However, if despite being a different material and labelled as quick-dry, they still smell, then I will have gained nothing by getting these shoes. I can't find any claims that they are less smelly. Are they?
