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.

    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.

                Comments about West Marine Performance Flip Flop:

                I purchased a pair of these flip flops 1.5 years ago. I live in the Caribbean and used it just about every day for a full year for all sorts of occasions. They stay out in the sun with plenty of UV hitting them and still hold strong. I like the fact that they have great traction even on wet tile or other slippery surfaces. Not the case with other sandals. I used them all the time on my sailboat and they provided great grip on wet surfaces. The first pair lasted 1 full year of extensive wear. I bought another pair and I have had them for 6 month of every day wear and still going strong. Great product.

                Not like the previous WM flip flops

                Pros

                • Good Sole

                Cons

                • Poor Quality Upper

                Best Uses

                  Comments about West Marine Performance Flip Flop:

                  The sole is like the previous flip flop which is great on a deck but the upper is loose fitting and made of cloth and something similar to leather. When these get wet they stay that way for hours whereas the previous model was dry in a short time. The product change/redesign was a bad idea. Return to the quality product you sold prior to this. I regret purchasing two pairs of these prior to my departure from the states. I will be looking at other makes for replacement.

                    Discarded pair with failed toe strap; repaired pair with failed side strap - separated sole to re-glue with shoo-goo. The manufacture should use a higher quality glue!
