Our best choice for hard-core river users.
The top choice for hardcore river users and whitewater boaters, Astral has designed the Rassler 2.0 for unmatched performance during paddling, fishing, canyoning and traveling.
The original Rassler earned Astral serious river cred; drawing accolades as Men’s Journal’s Best Paddling Shoe and Field & Stream’s 2017 Fishing Gear of the Year.
The revamped Rassler 2.0 will dominate the game again as an exceptionally grippy and rugged, yet lightweight shoe that dries fast and drains quick.
The sole is redesigned for improved durability. The mid-cut upper provides extra protection and support.
Astral CEO & Founder, Philip Curry says,
“The Rassler, with its amazing wet grip, ultra-lightness, ankle support and good looks has been one of Astral’s most beloved shoes since 2013. For its second version, our sole focus was to make it more durable.”
The unisex Rassler 2.0 brings style to the river in typical Astral fashion.
