The Manistee is the latter. Even after prolonged submersions in Colorado’s mountain-chilly creeks, the shoe drained in seconds—and, thanks to the siped outsole, it received top marks for grippiness when wet. We also loved the adjustable lacing system: webbing attached to the laces cradles the foot, giving the shoe “snug purchase,” as one tester put it, even when completely soaked. 10.6 oz
