I'm pretty hard to please and not afraid to shell out the coinage when needed in order to be comfortable. Typically, I wear Cole Haan's Nike Air series of shoes b/c of their extreme comfort design. However, spending $200/pr to work on the boat, yard and just hang out watching games and bbq'n is a bit silly so when I saw these on sale at 50% off, I decided to give them a try. I do not normally do reviews, but when I saw the reviews on this shoe and saw so many negatives, I felt compelled to let you know that I am very pleasantly surprised by the comfort afforded by this shoe. I'm only on day 1, but they ride like if they were broken in. The only negative I can say is that my feet are sweating more than normal. I assume this has to do with the water resistant insoles? Other than that, I am very happy with the pair. Will let you know if things change but at this point I would recommend them to anyone and especially for the price.

I was a huge fan of the previous model. It was comfortable the moment you put the shoe on. This redesign is obviously a much cheaper shoe to build. Unfortunately, they did not lower the price and the shoe is flimsy and uncomfortable compared to its predecessor. It is also much smaller than its listed size. Over the years, I probably averaged 2-4 pairs a year. I will no longer purchase these shoes.

      Comments about Men's Performance Boat Mocs:

      I have owned at least seven pairs of the Performance Boat Mocs over the last ten years or so. I loved them: good fit, comfortable right out of the box, great quality and durability. However, when I went to order my latest pair, I saw many reviews complaining that the new version is not nearly as good as the old one.

      I should have listened to those reviews.

      Instead, I took a chance and ordered them anyway. Big disappointment! The other reviewers are correct: they are much too narrow, not comfortable, and the construction quality does not appear as good as the old version. Back to West Marine they go!

      Customer service was very helpful with the return, and told me that West Marine had recently switched manufacturers for these shoes, hence the changes. The previous manufacturer was a well-known one (even to me), and it was not surprising that they turned out a great shoe. The new one I had never heard of, but the results speak for themselves.

      Please, West Marine, bring back the old Performance Boat Mocs that we knew and loved!

          It's been a few weeks since I bought my new boat shoes...and I've been wearing them everyday! I work around Lake of the Ozarks and call on many marine oriented businesses daily...I've had a couple customers comment on them..."new shoes?"...you bet...West Marine!

            I find these shoes to be very comfortable, good looking, and a good buy especially when on sale. I wear them for general casual wear and on my sailboat. They hold up reasonably well considering they get wet frequently when sailing. I would recommend them and I will continue to buy them in the future.

              This very useful, and stylish shoe, was also priced at about half of its competition.
              With WM experience and specific market, their shoe skills are pretty equivalent to other traditional products.
              They last as long, keep you upright on deck, dry as fast, and look as good. They just do not have the hip-hop colors that others are offering, and that no serious mariner or non-mariner would wear.
              Admittedly this was a particular bargain.
              But, when I need boat shoes, I go to the superb local West Marine and pay whatever they offer in WM products.

                I have had 3 pair of the older and better version of this same shoe and size. While I am 10 pounds lighter then before I cannot even get my foot into this shoe it is very narrow. Quality has been compromised as well. Obviously they are using a new vendor which is too bad. Returning them today.

                Don't waste your time with this shoe.

                I hesitated to buy them because of the negative reviews. But, when I saw them on sale, the price made them attractive. And, I figured if I didn't like them I could return them.

                Overall I'm satisfied. Although the construction is different from the previous version, I found them comfortable and a good fit. My biggest concern is the soles. They appear to be molded soles rather than razor-siped soles. If my primary use was a deck shoe, I'd question how well they'd perform on a wet deck. But, as an inexpensive casual shoe, I think they'll be fine.

                  This shoe can double as a boat shoe and a walk around the town or even trail shoe when on a charter trip. That's how I used it and it worked out great. The non slip will wear out if you use it hard like I did for walking around off the boat but you can get away with just one shoe on a trip. I found it to be a very comfortable walking shoe.

                      The lining does not breathe. The soles are molded, not cut. Once the small ribs wear down, there's no tread whatsoever. They'd be alright for casual wear with socks. Not for sockless top side wear (which is what I bought them for). I got the Sperry Mako for $10 more and am very satisfied.

                      Mens "Performance Boat Mocs" failed to live up to their name and expectations. The sole material has became very hard and slippery providing little to no traction. I can not use them on or near the boat for fear of slipping of the deck or dock. They give poor traction even on pavement. I have a pair of less expensive boat shoes from a national wholesale club that still provides better traction. I usually like WM products but I can not recommend these boat shoes due to the poor traction - the most important reason for wearing a boat shoe.
