Product Description

Athletic sailing requires performance shoes that are designed to keep you comfortable AND help keep you on your boat. The Sea Kite does all that. For comfort, Sperry has ensured that water has no place to hide inside these shoes. Hydrophobic leather, fabric and mesh are combined to make the uppers and linings not only drain quickly, but not attract and hold water to begin with. Full-length, removable, EVA-cushioned footbeds add an extra layer of comfort. Drainage holes in the forefoot area of the compression molded EVA midsoles further enhance water expulsion. Then to help keep you on deck instead of trying out your auto-inflating life vest, the non-marking rubber outsoles feature Adaptive Wave-Siping™ that works behind, or rather below, the scenes to increase surface contact by channeling water from underfoot and reduce slippage on both wet and dry surfaces. Imported.

        Comments about Men's Sea Kite Sailing Shoes:

        I finally replaced my classic leather top siders with these breathable cool performance sailing shoes. The grip on deck is amazing. No slip and confident control at 30 degrees of heel. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. I have been racing with these shoes for three weeks and have not lost a race yet. It is amazing what a good pair of shoes (and a new carbon fiber Genoa) can do for performance.

            Finally a shoe that will grip the decks in any conditions. Get the shoe wet and it dries quickly.

                Comments about Men's Sea Kite Sailing Shoes:

                All day comfort. This is second pair of Sperry athletic/boat shoes and they've improved the weight (lighter) and water drainage/airflow. The traditional leather boat shoe never gave the support I needed for extra high arches ... this shoe does and provides the grip needed on deck.
