Product Description

If your lifestyle involves water, these shoes will work and play as hard as you do!

Blurring the lines between function and style, the Billfish 3-Eye Boat Shoes from Sperry are ready to take you from ship to shore without missing a step. But don't just take our word for it, a quick scan of the reviews (found in that tab to the right and below the pictures) should convince you that you'll be in lots of company should you decide these are the best boat shoes you've ever worn.

So what exactly makes these shoes popular for boating AND casual wear? We thought you'd never ask! Let's start at the top and work our way down to the very heart and sole of these versatile favorites:

The Uppers: Full-grain, oiled-tanned leather that's stain- and water-resistant is combined with nylon air-mesh panels on the Billfish so they not only look great (and who doesn't love classic boat shoe styling), they're also durable, long-lasting and supportive. In addition to adding an element of style, the mesh panels serve to keep your feet cooler than all-leather uppers since they breathe and let water drain out when the unavoidable splash or dunk occurs (like that ever happens when you're on a boat).

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 just wishing you're 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? Remember the unavoidable splash or dunk we mentioned earlier? 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. (Trust us on this one. This writer once came back from a whitewater rafting trip wearing only one shoe...without 360° lacing of course.) The lacing also improves overall stability since it will keep your shoes from slipping around on your feet.

Padded Tongues: This might seem like an insignificant feature...until you tie your Billfish 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 place 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.

The Midsoles: Once again Sperry uses EVA for cushioning. Only this time in the Billfish's molded midsoles. By virtue of the fact that they run the length of the shoes, these cushioned midsoles provide all-day, under-foot shock absorption whether you're bracing against pounding waves or doing your happy dance at the yacht club after winning your local regatta.

The Outsoles: Authentic boat shoes wouldn't be complete without proper soles to help keep you from being an MOB (Man Overboard) statistic. The Billfish features rubber outsoles with Wave-Siping™—razor thin, wavy slits in the rubber—and deeper grooves to channel 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 (like that bumper sticker you really wish you could remove from your car) 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 Billfish Boat Shoes; 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.

Wore it once during practice and once casually before it blew apart. I've had at least 5-6 pairs over the years and this has never happened before and I'm confident it won't happen again. Otherwise a great shoe!
