Men's Bahama™ Vent Marlin PFG Shoe is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great in rivers/lakes The shoe is very comfortable until you start walking in the water. Small rocks and sand easily enter the shoe, which is understandable. Most the times it would be easy to remove the shoe and empty the rocks. But with the design on these the sole of the shoe, which is supposed to let water pass through also catches all the little rocks. The end result is you have little rocks stuck in your shoe and it is not easy to impossible to remove them. The shoe became very uncomfortable to walk in. I am not sure what kind of rivers they were planning on people to walk in, I was in the Henrys Fork of the Snake river (premier fly fishing water) and these shoes were not the answer to spending the day in the water. One day in the river with these was to much they have now become a yard shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shies the shoes run a little big. They are great in the water. The only problem is the side of one of them run on your ankle and causes a blister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe for around the house or on the water So far, it has been a great shoe. I have not had a chance to test how it handles being soaked / drying out, but overall, they are very comfortable and seem well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Columbia shoes This is the third pair of shoes from Columbia. Everyone has fit my feet perfectly. I have somewhat narrow feet (94 last) and low arches. A lot of shoes simply don't fit. Luckily for me every pair I have gotten from Columbia have fit perfectly, and every pair feels great when I wear them. Its to the point that I don't shop for shoes anywhere else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I do a lot of fishing from a boat and push off from sandy shores. I was skeptical after reading other reviews about durability since I am 6'4" and weigh 350 but these shoes have held up really well. I am absolutely impressed. The only issue I have had is sand filling up the mesh under the insoles. I just pull them off and swish them back and forth in the water and boom! Easy fix. Don't be afraid to get these shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shoe to wear on the boat all day!! I was looking for shoes to wear on my boat all day when fishing. I am used to just going bear foot and my back would kill me for the next couple day. These shoe were the solution!! They do run a little small and when they are dry they are a little scratchy on your feet. But when they are wet they are great and will dry quickly

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good, shoe has ripped after wearing twice Hello, I purchased these Bahama Vent Marlins (size 9.5) at the beginning of September. They were delivered to my house on September the 7th. I wore the shoes two times and the second time the shoe popped at the seam, which is noted in the pictures attached. I do not have the receipt as I was planning on keeping them. What can I do to replace these shoes with new ones?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love those bahama vents so far, I love these shoes. Light weight for carrying, quick-dry for versatility. with or without socks, short go, longer walking, river wading, boating, all of it. (haven't had a chance to try the wet gripping on a sailboat yet, but that 's coming up.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved but fell apart These are ultra comfortable but fell apart after wearing about a dozen times. Columbia customer service is great and quickly send a return and refund. I will buy again hoping it was a fluke. I have a camo pair that I've had six months and are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars very happy with my purchase. Bought this pair of shoes for my dad whose job requires me to walk and stand a lot. He said the shoes are extremely comfy and give his feet great support!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi-purpose Shoe Comfortable and good looking enough to wear day in and day out. Dresses up and down in the summer. Performs brilliantly in a boat, kayak, shore, etc. Probably wouldn't walk a ton of miles in it, but dries quickly and is supremely comfortable. I have a big foot, so I always size up. Would recommend others size down or stay on size. If you have a narrower foot, it may seem roomier.
