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 with its amphibious details. 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 reducing slippage on both wet and dry surfaces. Imported.

Comments about Mens Sea Kite Sailing Shoes, Wide Width:

I bought these shoes less than two years ago and have used them exclusively racing on keel boats. Now beginning the third season the sole has lost all its grip, indeed the shoes are dangerously slippery, even on dry deck. Despite multiple races every week they are otherwise holding up great and show no other signs of wear, too bad the sole is of lesser quality. I am very disappointed that they only lasted me two seasons. I did expect more from Sperry.

      I wear this shoe in the harshest conditions.
      Salt water and sunshine. These two conditions can destroy a shoe in months.
      After work I hose them off with fresh water and let them dry in the sun.
      The soles have not hardened up in over a year like some sperrys soles tend to do.

          I bought these for my husband, he has a very wide foot and they fit great! I have the women's version, they clean up nicely after launching from a sandy beach and shoreline filled with seaweed. I cannot comment on durability at this time, but I do Highly Recommend this shoe if you need a quick-drying shoe that drains well and offers stability on the deck!

              I would have prefered a bit less mesh and a bit more leather for sturdiness.

              I tried the shoe on in my local West Marine and it felt great.Bottom sole has excellent traction on dry and wet surfaces.Grips well on wet gel coat.Stepped in the water loading a friends boat and my feet felt like I was wearing a wet sock.The water drains quickly but my feet were still wet 4 hours later.Tried it again a day later with the same result.Not for water use !!!
