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.

    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.

          Comments about West Marine Men s Performance Boat Mocs, Oak, 8.5:

          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.

            It's unfortunate that West Marine replaced their old Performance Boat Moc which was a really good shoe with this far inferior model. No support, replaced the leather liner with padded synthetic fabric, and the shoes just loose their form after wearing them for awhile. I'll never buy another pair

              I had planned on using these shoes on board my Catalina sloop, but returned them before I got the chance. They were very good looking shoes, stylish, well made. The only problem I had with them was their narrow construction. I have an average width foot and in wearing them around the house right after delivery, I realized they would be too uncomfortable to wear for any length of time.
              I would recommend these shoes to anyone with a narrower than average foot.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Yes to all three. Prompt delivery, in good condition and customer service was available and helpful.

                  Bought these as a replacement for an older pair for my husband. I purchased the same size and model as previously, but the new pair was much too small and no longer had the arch support that was in the older pair. I returned them for a refund.
