Rated 1 out of 5 by Boat Shoe This shoe is very comfortable. However the material it is made from does not allow for everyday long wears. It does not provide proper ventilation which causes your feet to sweat, which in turns causes you to have smelly feet after wearing all day long. January 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable I love these shoes very lightweight and comfortable January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everyday Shoe I have worn this pair of shoes most days for the past year and they are still going on strong. There is some fraying in the seams where my toe bends but I am very tough on these shoes so I am surprised that they haven't fallen apart yet. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bahama Vent My favorite slip on, casual shoes. This is my second pair. Great for any occasion... December 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great casual shoe These are great shoes, they look great and feel comfortable on. My only complaint is they start to smell after a little bit when wearing without socks. December 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I haven't much to say just that I am very happy with the shoes so comfortable, strong material nice looks. November 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great casual boating shoe Very comfortable. Great for working around boats when you constantly have to remove your shoes. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I like these loafers because they are so nice and light and airy. Great for around town or water sports as they drain quickly. Plus I am a loafer too! November 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shoes This is the best pair of shoes I have worn while fishing. The non marking sole are a dream just wish my fishing partner would have the same shoes. Very comfortable and full foot support, wish they were made in a work boot. October 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy My son has been wearing these steady since they come in. Very cute an comfy. September 20, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Most comfortable all around show on the market Great overall shoe Stays dry and my feet Never stink Great to dance in when I come off my boat Best shoe I have ever worn August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfort!!!!! I love these shoes and they go with anything...shorts, jeans, etc... July 30, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by ewww Shoes fit/wear pretty good, but they smell like nasty plastic. I would recommend washing them a few times before even thinking of putting your foot in them. The chemicals will soak into your feet. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Buy!! We will defiantly be buying more! I got them for him as gift and he loves them, says they are comfortable and feel good. July 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable and Light. Very comfortable and light. its a little bit rough in the inside if you put it on bare feet. But very comfortable if you use a pair if socks. July 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great slip on shoe! I wear these as my casual shoe, and I love them! They are comfortable and the look good. I would highly recommend them. They ran true to size for me. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fished and stuck it Just went fishing yesterday in these for the first time, the deck was wet and slightly fishy :), I stayed in place even when a few wakes surprised me... and I looked good! June 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These shoes are awsome I love theys shoes. Very confortable. Just slip them on and go. I got them for vacation. We went to Disney World so of course we did alot of walking and my feet never hurt. And they keep your feet cool too. They dont get all sweaty and stinky at the end of the day. Columbia did an awsome job with these shoes. Cant wait to order my next pair. June 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good buy Great comfortable shoe for leisure. June 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by everyone wants some This shoe fits very nicely, I have tall instep and they don't cut into the top of my feet. They could use more arch support but are good for all day on the boat. May 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great casual shoe..... I was very surprised at the comfort of this slip on shoe. Very happy with it. May 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Quality Dock Shoe Very well built Shoe. Easy to put on and take off. Excellent Grip. Have not dumped it in the water yet but looks like it would dry very quickly. No arch support in it, yet I still find it comfortable and I have a neutral Arch. May 8, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I thought these would be great but they're not! I bought these for use in the water / boat shoes that I thought I could wear without socks. Unfortunately they sliced both the left & right side of both feet just below the ankle. I guess it would be OK with socks but that defeats the purpose of a water shoe. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Got these for boating and kayaking but nice enough to wear around very comfortable. April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Boat Shoe! I put these shoes through their paces on a recent fishing trip to the Abacos. They are lightweight, durable, and dry quickly. The best part, is after a week with no socks and they occasional dusting of foot powder, they don't stink!!! March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome shoes These are very comfortable shoes. Great for fishing or casual use. I wear a 1/2 size smaller, most likely due to not wearing socks. March 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Kicks Nice and light like any new shoe wear them in so you don't get blisters . I will sen another review in the near future on wearability. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Water Shoe Besides this shoe looking great for any occasion, it works fantastic, and is made for water. Insert is almost mesh like, and under the insert you can see the channels that empty the shoe quickly of water. I use this on my SUP now all the time. One downside I noticed, not enough to lose a star though, is the material around the edge of where your foot goes in is somewhat 'sharp' and can irritate the sides of your feet if not wearing socks. January 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hubs loves them Got them for a gift for my husband he hasn't taken them off. January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice, comfortable shoe I was a little concerned about fit (snug), but after a few days, canvas upper stretched out fine. I'd wish for a little more room for my toes, otherwise a nice shoe that I'd buy again. October 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Shoe Used the shoes last week on a trip to Grand Cayman. Spent several days fly fishing flats on sandy and rocky areas. The shoes protected my fet and were extremely comfortable during those days. Water and sand flushed through the shoe well and they dried quickly on the porch. Also, look nice enough to wear around the hotel. Ordered size 11, normally wear and 11 1/2 in shoes. October 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased I was looking for an easy slip-on/off great looking pair of shoes for boating/kayaking and these are perfect for on and off the water. They fit great but stretch out after while if I would have bought another pair a half size smaller would have been perfect for me. They hold up well with the elements of the weather and outdoors and I have put them through sand, mud and saltwater after a quick wash and air dry they look just like new. Highly recommend them! May 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect beach shoe. These shoes are much better that the previous pair I owned the sides and heel cup are much softer and do not abrade into the skin when wet. They are also stylish and the color I selected "pebble tippet" goes with about everything. March 15, 2014
