Ultra 3 Bloom Mens DNA


Produced using animal free products and processes.


Ultra III is inspired by the lightest and strongest shape found in nature, the hexagon EVA structure lets your feet breath and drains water easily. Lightweight like a running spike at (190 grams) and grips likes a climbing shoe. The new hex grip sole made with our sticky rubber pushes water out of the way so your feet can stick to rocks.

The great-great son of the original Ultra, launched 7 years ago, has been redesigned to be lighter, stickier, more barefoot and looks like mother nature made it just for you.  The lightest, amphibious adventure shoe is back and better than ever. Get your feet involved.

From the plane to the beach, from the canoe to the dinner table, The Ultra III has your feet covered for any of your sunny holidays or expeditions that might be thrown your way.


Pretty Good!

Originally I bought this shoe because I needed a new water shoe and I loved the design. I later discovered the world of minimal footwear and really enjoyed the new experience. My only complaint is that the first eyelet (the holes closest to your leg where the cord goes through) started to rip from tightening the cord after just the second day. I don't think that material is durable and can't see these lasting more than a couple more months with out those holes giving way

Smooth Ride

These shoes are sick. My first run in them was on the beach, and I was pushing it, as fast I could. They felt so smooth, and pure as I run through the water with them on. Water easily sloshed out, and my feet did not slide at all. I moved to the road, and they held up really well. Fast, free.

I pushed it again the next day. Admittedly, a little too hard. I ran until my feet were bleeding. The pressure points on the shoes really tore my feet up. This is more my fault than the shoes, however, as I should have allowed for more transition time.

I would definitely recommend, though!

Fun Water Shoe

The Bloom is a fun water shoe and great for boating or some lake time. I wore them on an nine-mile hike with some water crossings and on a nature walk along a creek. The slip-off design made it easy to empty the shoe of any debris. There was some rubbing on my little toe so for any long hikes I'll be putting a covering on my toe to prevent blistering. Overall these are a solidly good minimalist shoe!
