I was just at a shoe store looking for water shoes.  I tried on a pair of the KSO's but they fit my heel funny and felt odd on the bottom of my foot right in the center.  I then tried on the KomodoSports and they are fantastic.  Is there any issue using those as water shoes?

Only issue is that others have reported they can take a long time to dry.  Otherwise they should hold up just fine and stay put on your foot in the same manner as the KSO.

So they should perform okay if they were,  say,  submerged in an underground Mexican river?

Also, after trying them out a little more, the ones I have are too small, but the size one click up I think is too long.  I saw that there is a laced version, would that still be okay in water?

The should perform just fine submerged, they just will take longer to dry.  You should be fine with the laced version as well, just need to be sure you cinch them tight so they aren't pulled off of your foot in the current.

Mine have been soaked numerous times and have done fine....  I prefer my KSO's and even Trek's over the Komodo's for drying time.  You can alway's take matters into your own hands like me....  Wink

That is a great pic.

As for the topic at hand.  I've never been in a "water" situation in KS's, but like others have said, I'm sure the only issue would be if you needed them to dry fast.  I used my KSO's in the Ocean during some pretty rough tides, and they stayed on very well.  The KomonoSport LS's that I've tried seem to hold my foot better than the KSO's, so I'm sure they'll stay secure in a cenote.
