Columbia PFG Bahama Vent Shoe

Gearflogger reviews the Columbia PFG Bahama Vent shoeIt's winter, and that means… planning a beach vacation to get through January! And if you're going to the beach, you've got to bring the right footwear. We wanted something that could go from sand to sidewalk and handle a little splashing to boot, and we found a great solution with the Columbia PFG Bahama Vent shoe.

Columbia's PFG line is just solid hot and humid capable clothing. We used one of the PFG shirts to bum around Europe for three weeks this summer in 90F+ temps, so we had high expectations of the shoes. Long story short, the shoes measure up. They have a fold down heel so you can wear them as a slip on, then flip up the heel cup when you need a bit more security. They're comfortable for long walks on pavement, sand or anything in between, and they easily handle water and walk well while wet.

The Bahama Vent shoe is a great travel shoe, packing up small if you're carrying them as a second pair or performing on beach and boardwalk if they're your only dogs. Highly recommended, and on sale at REI at the moment for almost half off!

$39.83 at REI (on sale from $70.00)
