The Columbia Drainmaker is the ideal summer shoe for those looking for the weight and functionality of a flip flop with the agility of a trainer. They are perfect for walking over rocks carrying a kayak, fishing, sailing whilst maintaining the looks and functionality of a running shoe.
The upper body of the shoe consists of a lightweight, meshy fabric that’s super breathable and drainable. Whilst providing less support than Columbia’s core trail running shoes, the upper body of the Drainmaker is equipped with a toe cap to soften any direct impact on the front of the foot.
To define this product, Columbia have formulated a drainage system that helps water escape the shoe on impact; squeezing unwanted fluid from the shoe cavity. The Columbia is the Omni-Grip® Wet Grip rubber is tenacious on wet and slippery surfaces.
As an advancement from the 2010 release of the Ravenous, the Drainmaker adds a unique and specific shoe to Columbia’s footwear collection. Check out the video below to see a demo of the product.
