Product Description

Giving you the performance of a boat shoe, these soon-to-be-classics feature stain- and water-resistant leather straps, plus drainage channels in the heel and mid-foot area that funnel water from the footbed out through the soles so your feet are held more securely while maintaining the barefoot freedom of a flip-flop. Dual density, non-marking outsoles with siping and deep water channels improve grip on wet surfaces in rapidly changing conditions. Imported.

My previous pair finally wore out (at the toe strap, which pulled loose) after several years of hard wear, including one of my dogs gnawing away at the heel of one sandal. These were definitely my favorite pair of flipflops (I have several). I've been doing without them for awhile, but can't any longer. Going back in to West Marine for new ones.

Have worn WM flip flops for years. Was hands down the best. The last change in them was about 3 years ago and they aren't the same. The deck grip and foot grip is and has been EXCELLENT whether dry or wet. The top straps are what is mediocre. They now stretch when wet (ya know, when you really need em tight) and need to let them sun dry to shrink back up a little. I wear them hard, 6+ days a week, for boating, working, casual etc., buy a new pair every year and rotate last years to grass cutters and the new ones for when they count. Switching to Sperry to try this season.

    Very durable. Have tried many more expensive brands that do not come close to the comfort and longevity of this product. I have used Gorilla glue to even repair an old pair that blow-out while looked for my recent replacements.

            Comments about Mens Performance Flip-Flops:

            My last pair of West Marine flip flops took 9 years to wear out. I have had this pair about a month, and the thongs are starting to stretch out. Their also isn't very much arch support. My last pair I wore almost daily, until one of the thongs broke. I can't wear this pair daily, as my feet starting to hurt. They just don't make things like they used to.

            Received them very quickly.

                Didn't lose grip till sitting too close to campfire. 12 yrs old & still working. The new ones run a little tight. Thy may break in before breaking out.

                These are without a doubt the most comfortable and durable flip flops I have ever owned. This is my 2nd pair and I hope that West Marine doesn't discontinue them.
