Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I went to Academy in search of a new pair of Sperry’s and these shoes caught my eye. I tried them on and immediately took them to the check-out. They’re very comfortable and dry quickly after washing down the boat after every run. The grip on slick surfaces is as expected with most other boat shoes but the comfort is phenomenal. I rate them highly in comfort! Thanks Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shoe These may be the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I live in them. I wear them to work with socks or just casual with no socks. I have people compliment me on their looks all the time and ask where I got them. Great shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer casual shoes! I normally wear a 9.5 but got these in a 10 and they fit just right. The shoes are lightweight and don't get too hot. I got them in ancient fossil and steel and they look good with shorts and jeans. They have the look of a lace-up shoe but don't be fooled. The laces are stretchy bands that don't tie. This allows you to just slip the shoes on - perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shoe This is a good looking, high functioning, shoe. Comfortable to wear out with the kids, on the street, or headed to the beach. For those with narrow feet, it is a little wide, and the "laces" are not adjustable. However, still a really nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to shoe My favorite pair of shoes in my closet. Don't get discouraged after the first wear, they take just a bit to break in, but after that they have become the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I've tried other brands of shoes that are designed to wear without socks (boat shoes) but they always make my feet sweat, resulting in a stinky house. The Columbia Bahamas breathe well, and don't leave your feet feeling sweaty. They look great with just about any outfit, I even wear them to church on Sunday. I love these shoes so much I bought a second pair to store in my closet after the fist wears out. Hopefully Columbia will continue to make these shoes for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best slip on I’ve bought I have wide feet with a high arch and most slip ons do not work for my feet, however, these are perfect. They formed to my feet after a couple of wears. These are great for summer weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rockin' boat shoe Slipping on this shoe is a treat. Easy to go sockless all day because the heel doesn't rub and there are little/no seams to bother the feet. Super light weight makes you feel swift, but you'll be reminded you're wearing them because people will compliment your style constantly. Again, another piece of PFG that transitions easily from the backyard bbq, to dinner with the in-laws, to the boat deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Comfy Shoes I bought these to replace a pair of Sanuks that I have in a similar color and style and these are a huge upgrade. They have better arch support, better traction, and the canvas seems quite durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cumpfy shoes. I jave looking for Columbia to have a darker charcoal PFG shoe for a while and they have it now. These shoes dont stay in stock long so i snatched them up quick. They fit just right, the, color is what i wanted, and they are very comfortable. If you want a casual/boat shoe look no farther, this should be your next purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe...buying more of this style great colors and simple design. versatile. fits perfect. I'd like to see the shoe fabric improved to be more resistant to dirt, but still breath easy. This might be asking too much but i really like the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Bought these shoes as a Valentine's gift for my boyfriend, he had seen them in store but the store only carried them in full sizes I checked online and they carried half's so I ordered them from here. He loves them he says they are super comfortable and he likes that you can dress then up and use them casually!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than the non relaxed version! Bought these for a friend and was skeptical. I bought the non relaxed version (no lace look on the front (Bahama vent)) to wear with out socks for myself over the summer. The stitching around the edges of the toe dug in to my pinkie toe so bad I took them back. However when I ordered these for my friend I checked them out and the stitching portion was totally covered with fabric and no stitching could be felt when I reached in! Big improvement over the others. Only sad they don't make these in wide or I would order a pair for myself. Sorry can't speak to size fit for 9.5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe Great shoe! I love it! very comfortable, sometimes I forget I have them on. My only complaint is for my feet, they could be a tad wider. A little snug on the sides, but nothing to exchange them over! Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bahama Vent Have owned other PFG lines of shoes. Tried these . They have good support and cushioning. Actually walked a two mile roundtrip on a stone breakwater and they performed very well. Got them soaked in salt water & dry fast. They sole rivals higher end deck shoes as far as traction on wet decks go and the slide feature is a good addition. Overall these shoes hit a home run
