|Founded in 2002, our first products were life jackets that were known to promote calm confidence in the most extreme whitewater. Now, Astral is widely known as the most innovative life jackets for paddling in whitewater, calm water, or across oceans. [LT]br /[GT][LT]br /[GT]|
In 2012 we started making footwear because there was no river shoe with adequate grip or even one that dried quickly. It turns out that our fundamental approach to designing shoes - respecting the foot's natural ability to maintain balance and grip in extreme places- also makes for supremely comfortable and versatile footwear for use on trails and around town.[LT]br /[GT][LT]br /[GT]
Our reason for being is to make gear that elevates human's experience in Nature, consciously made to preserve clean soil and water.
