We don't normally advise charging into murky water over a bed of sharp rocks. But if you're so inclined, please wear Keen's McKenzie. The bulbous toe bumper and leather sidewalls afford almost as much protection as a boot, while the big mesh panels let water slosh right out. With a quick-pull lace, it isn't as secure as a strap-on sandal, but it's much more confidence-inspiring on tricky terrain. 12.5 oz; $90;
