I have worn almost continous for over a month at work, play and driving. The uppers have no sign of wear or defect. the soles seem designed for deck use and are wearing the (squigleys?) off on the aft part of the sole where I strike my foot first. Other than that small area the soles show no signs of wear. I will buy another pair because a good fitting and comfortable sandal in this style is harder to find than you would believe. Good value for $$.$$

I was so glad to find a size 13 sandal that looked nice and looked rugged. Boy was I wrong. The straps broke off from the base. They are not sewn in. Simply inexpensive glue. Do not buy this sandal.

Comfortable, But Not Robust

Comments about West Marine Men's Performance Boat Sandals:

These are "High Performance Boat Sandals." They're comfortable, water doesn't hurt them, they have good traction on a wet deck, but the velcro fasteners are poor quality and wore out (wouldn't stick) after less than one summer of use and the sandals won't stay on my feet. Therefore, I do not recommend these sandals. My previous boat sandals ("Sharks") lasted almost 5 seasons and the straps eventually wore through, but never lost their stick.

    Comments about Men's Performance Boat Sandals:

    I really like these sandals. Only had them a few months so cannot speak to their long-term durability, but they have been great. Really feel like they provide comfort and support yet are really lightweight. Best thing is they dry much faster than my old, heavy leather sandals. And they stay clean/cleanup easily. Nothing negative about them I can say, except I am mad I didn't wait til they were on sale like they are now! Tempted to buy another pair...

      I have had these for over 5 years and they still look and fit great. Great for camping, boating, or kayaking. Dries quickly and comfortable so you can wear them all day.

      Comments about West Marine Men's Performance Boat Sandals, Chocolate, 8:

      These shoes are comfortable for boating. Unfortunately, every time they get wet the dye stains my feet. It then takes scrubbing and a few days to get the dye to wear off. This is a faulty product. I would like to think West Marine would honor their products I am not very good about taking items back and don't' have the receipt.

        I have had mine some 15 years. Worn on the boat (no slipping) and now on shore, at home and around town. Obviously the soles exhibit minor wear but otherwise the hook and loop is still fine and no other wear on the leather or stitchiing. They are black and gray with "West Marine H2O Grip Rubber" embossed on the bottom or the soles.

            Use product for boating in small power boats that are typically wet. After 2 days in Biscayne Bay, the dye ran from the sandal staining me feet purple. The outside heel strap on the left sandal seperated from the base within 3 months.

                Receives as a present from my wife. Was very pleased with fit and comfort. Then one forward strap broke after only 3 months of normal wear. so discusted that I would not drive the 30 miles on way o take it back. Still makes me mad thinking about it.

                          Only the straps remained the same. Everything else has changed to a cheaper product. Too bad the old style was a good product. Not what's shown in the photo!
