Their versatility provides for multiple looks from sport to casual or semi casual ocassions. This boat shoes are like good wine that are going to stay and last for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colombia deck shoes These shoes fit amazingly well. Put them on out of the box and they feel like I've had them forever. Living in Florida, I walk through a lot of rain puddles as well as being on the ocean fishing. They drain very well. The air holes in the insole allow excellent ventilation. They have great support as well as my support for this product. Highly recommend and I do not fill out reviews often. Steve

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this shoe! I typically wear a Women's size 9.5 wide, which can be difficult to find. I determined that a Mens size 8 regular is a match for that. These shoes are a great "slip on" for a very casual outfit - and don't look "manly" for me. They are well made, and I know they will last, as I have worn another, "Bonehead Vent", for several years. Thanks Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Functional These are great shoes! I have owned 2 other pair that have served me well as boat shoes, beach shoes, house shoes and just knocking around shoes. They never seem to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bonehead Vent Boat Shoe Shoe was average. The heel was not comfortable and rubbed my ankle until it hurt. They had to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for the summer Great shoe. Fits big, but that could've been my fault when ordering. These seem like they will hold up very well over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to everyday shoes Light, comfortable, these are my daily wear shoes. I have a few pairs of Sperry, but I like my Bonehead Vents better. They did take some time to break in- got blisters on both Achilles. Overall highly recommend, I’ll probably be getting the other color too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shoes Fit well, light and comfortable. I like them so much I order two pair at the time. I still have two old pair that I wear for working around the house. They look nice also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shoes! These shoes are lightweight, comfortable and very versatile. The fit is true to size and the style is great for anything from shorts to dressier khaki pants. Would definitely recommend and buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice looking shoe. I was very excited to receive these in the mail. My wife bought them as a birthday present because I go kayaking a lot and wanted a quality boat shoe. First day I put them on I kept feeling a sore spot on my right foot. After only a short trip to the store I had a blister there is a knot only on the one shoe where the leather comes together. The left side is fine no problems. I called about getting a replacement and was told I would have to return them to a Columbia store or send them back for return then purchase another pair. I did not want to have to pay shipping and there is no Columbia stores near me 29461. So they will sit in my closet. I would not recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual shoe Lots of hard use both beach and in town. One of the most comfortable shoes I've worn. Does stain when it gets wet but for me it came out with a stiff brush and what was left was not an issue. Have never saturated it so can't talk about the drainage/drying. Ordered a spare pair pair to put in the closet so I have an extra when these wear out. The perfect shoe for shorts and khakis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Popular in the family We got my husband a similar pair to these and his father immediatly asked about them so we got him a pair for his birthday. They love the cushiony, flexible base of the shoe that makes them far more comfortable than other boat shoes. My father-in-law thinks these are great and very comfortable when he finds almost nothing comfortable to walk in. Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the shoes for travel and driving The shoes are light weight and fit perfectly. I love it as they are super comfortable to drive in and good travel shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart casual wear I have only worn them twice , so this review at Columbia's follow up request when you buy, as always, is a bit premature, particularly for a shoe as opposed to, say, a shirt. A shoe has to wear in. I bought a half size smaller than I normally would , after reading the reviews on here, and they are a perfect fit. Having said that they do curve at the back to hold the shoe on, and on first wearing this was hard on the heel. However with a second wearing they are settling down so looks like we have another winner. Used $20 of vouchers from previous points so mucho pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe! Shoes look to be very well made and are comfortable right out of the box! Top notch customer service to top it all off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe for everyday wear I bought my pair almost a year ago and wear them almost everyday that there isn't snow on the ground because they are so comfortable. The sizes do seem to run a little large as I normally wear a 12 but 11 fits great in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Light, good cushion, cool, dry. One little stain on them already but haven't tried washing/scrubbing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well, they look nice The shoes look nice and are light but I received them and the shoelace was stitched to the shoe. Manufacturing error im sure but I had to go through the hassle of sending them back and paying for shipping. The material isn't very thick it's more like suede and seems like it could tear or get scuffed up easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable One of the most comfortable and lite shoes I have worn in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My top boat shoe I honestly have always loved boat shoes for summer & I didn't know if Columbia could deliver a shoe that would live up to what I do. But they most defiantly did. I love these shoes, it's almost like they have a sticky grip when wet which is awesome very comfortable also. Only thing I can say bad is I can't tie them as tight as I'd like but maybe that's just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes This is my first pair of these shoes and I love them! Very comfortable, light and keep my feet cool and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bonehead Vent shoes are perfect These are very lightweight, but have plenty of cushion in the bottom. And easy to slip on and off without messing with shoe laces. Haven't tried to clean/polish them yet. Hopefully that will go smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shoes bought them for my son, he wears them everyday. they seem to wear good, this is his second pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deck shoes I really like these shoes they are light weight and for the most part comfortable except one thing there is stitching running right up the back of the heel that gave me a blister. After wearing them for a week or so they seem to break in and don't bother me anymore. Good looking shoe just wear a band aid the first couple times out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy feet 'deck shoes' are my preferred summer foot wear - these are instant hits with my feet, and are happy on a real deck - I spend 50 - 75 days a year on my feet, on the water. Light, comfortable, great cushioning. The only problem is that I'll wear them out too fast, using them as morning slip-ons around the house, they are that comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boat shoes These shoes are supremely comfortable. They have great support and virtually no break in time. Excellent quality with good air circulation and extremely light.
