I can hardly believe it but I have two teenagers now! One is 13 and the other is 15 and they are both always moving and exploring. When I heard about Loom Footwear, makers of high quality waterproof sneakers designed for outdoor activities, I knew they would be perfect for my active teens. We were provided with Loom Footwear waterproof sneakers in order to facilitate review.
Loom Waterproof Shoes
Loom Footwear makes vegan waterproof sneakers for men and women. As with most sneakers they can be worn in a variety of situations from walking city streets to light hiking. What sets these sneakers apart is that they are waterproof. This means they can tackle any setting from rain to mud to slush. This sleek, wear-anywhere waterproof sneaker means you are ready for the unexpected- whether it is the dew on the grass as you cut across the field or the wide stream you need to jump over to get back on the trail.
Loom Sneakers Review
Comfort / Feel
My teens both like the feel of the Loom Sneakers. I wear the same size shoe as my daughter so I was able to try them on to for fit and feel. We all agree that the lightweight waterproof sneakers are very comfortable and feel great. They are nicely form fitted for good support and they provide good cushion for all activities.
Loom Shoes Sizing
As far as fit, I would say that the Loom sneakers run about a half size small in both the mens line and the women’s line. Luckily, I had ordered a half size up from their normal shoe size since they are both still growing so the shoes still fit them perfectly. The size 8 fit me perfectly as well and I always wear a size 7.5.
I do want to point out that Loom Footwear has a very limited Refund/ Exchange policy so you may want to check that out here before you order.
My teens also love the design of the Loom sneakers. They slip on without needing to be laced and unlaced. The tongue of the shoe is not as separate as in most sneakers. The pros of this are that the tongue can’t slip around so the comfort level stays the same all day and the shoe slip on easily. The con of this is that the shoe can’t be tightened as much around the ankle so I would not suggest these as a running shoe for a serious cross country run.
Breathable and Anti-Odor
Loom shoes contain breathable, moisture-wicking material to help prevent your feet from feeling moist or sweaty. Made with antimicrobial properties that destroy bacteria in sweat that creates odor. I smelled my son’s shoes the other day to see if they really were anti-odor and so far so good!
I told my teens these were going to be waterproof sneakers when they selected the colors they wanted- he chose black waterproof sneakers and she chose waterproof white sneakers. By the time the Loom Footwear arrived they both seemed to forget that they were waterproof and they both seemed shocked when I wanted to pour water on their shoes! I can understand why they doubted me because the shoes feel so breathable and they don’t look like solid plastic. My son let me put the waterproof factor to the test and pour water on them and he was very pleased with the results as they kept his feet completely dry.
