Whether on deck or on the dock, these shoes will quickly become your favorites!

Comfortable and enduring, Mako 2-Eye Canoe Moc Boat Shoes from Sperry are an exceptional choice for boating or just revealing your love of the water lifestyle. But don't just take our word for it, a quick scan of the reviews (found in that tab below the picture of the Mako) should convince you these boat shoes are worthy of consideration if you plan to be on or around the water.

Why are these shoes popular for boating AND casual wear? Glad you asked. We'll start at the top and work our way down to the very heart and sole of this versatile style.

The Uppers: Soft, tumbled leather uppers give the Mako a classic rugged look, plus they're durable, long-lasting and supportive.

Genuine Handsewn Tru-Moc Construction: Why is this important? In a word, comfort. By hand fitting the leather to a last (a shoe form) and then hand stitching it with needles and waxed thread, you get a timeless moccasin upper that fits true to size and width. Moccasin construction also provides more flexibility so it conforms to your feet, not the other way around. The result is a pair of shoes that are so comfortable you'll want to wear them even when you're not on a boat.

The Lacing: A feature Sperry shoes are known for—their 360° Lacing System™ with rust proof eyelets. Unlike lesser boat shoes, Sperry provides for a secure fit all the way around your feet, not just across your insteps. Why does that matter? Once your shoes get wet (and they will get wet unless your boating only involves cruise ships or mega yachts), they will have a tendency to separate themselves from you if they aren't snugged down tight around the outside of your feet. The rawhide lacing also improves overall stability since it will keep your shoes from slipping around on your feet.

Padded Tongues and Collars: This might seem like an insignificant feature...until you tie your Mako shoes really tight so they stay on when the going gets wet! No one wants insteps that feel like they've been in a vice all day. The right amount of padding in the right places means these shoes will feel just as comfortable at the end of the day as when you first put them on. Sometimes the little things make all the difference.

Heel Cups: Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) heel cups absorb and disperse shock in this high-impact zone. A great way to stop foot, leg and back pain before it ever starts. Heel pillows are also included for added comfort.

The Midsoles: By virtue of the fact that they run the length of the shoes, these dual-density cushioned midsoles provide all-day, under-foot shock absorption whether you're reefing the mainsail or just meeting friends at the yacht club for dinner.

The Outsoles: Authentic boat shoes wouldn't be complete without proper soles to help keep you from being an MOB (Man Overboard) statistic. The Mako features rubber outsoles with Wave-Siping™—razor thin, wavy slits in the rubber—to disperse water from underneath so you'll enjoy ultimate traction whether your footing is wet or dry. In fact, they grip even better when coming in contact with wet gelcoat (what boat decks are typically covered in). You'll appreciate how they keep you firmly stuck to the surface when you're scrambling across a heeling deck in a sudden squall. Plus, in addition to their nonslip qualities, these soles are non-marking. That's right, the crew (more than likely you) won't have to scrub off the ugly black marks that ordinary shoes will leave on the previously mentioned white gelcoat.

Finally, you don't have to wear socks with your Makos; however, if you'd feel more comfortable we offer a selection of socks that are specifically made to wear with boat shoes and not show above the uppers so it looks like you aren't wearing socks. Imported.

Very comfortable and very easy break-in. Blisters are a common concern during boat shoe break-in. Socks are never to be worn with boat shoes. Put shoes on bare feet. Fill up bathtub with 6" warm water. Step in with shoes on for ten minutes. Then get out and wear them to dry. It will soften leather and allow them to mold to your foot conture and become as comfortable as a pair of slippers.

Run small and narrow

I have worn Sperry docsiders and performance sneakers for racing for decades. This model runs small and is narrow so I returned them.

          I've had these shoes for at least 4 years now and the sides finally came apart leaving a huge hole. These shoes are the most durable shoes I've ever had. I've used them for just about everyday for 4 years and they didn't give out until about a month ago.
