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.

I live in Socal and wear thongs all year round.

These thongs fit and wear well but have a MAJOR FLAW that the toe strap breaks before they are barely worn out!!!

I had one pair replaced under warranty and the replacements have broken one toe strap while the sole bottom and top have lots of life left.

Really BAD design flaw.

    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!

        Comments about Men's Performance Flip Flops:

        Can't make enough positive comments. My husband and I were hooked on the "Sperry" brand. After trying the West Marine brand I can say this is a superior product hands-down. We where our flip flops year round, always around water. They hold up well and soles stay soft! We are sold on this product.

            These are all I wear in Spring Summer and Fall during our outdoor season.I am an Avid Boater and I love the fit and feel of the sandal.But every pair I have had the toe strap, the piece between the toe and second toe failed before the sandal wore out.Once this happens the sandal is unwearable.It pulls through the sole.However,They are so comfortable I keep buying them from you.

                    Poorly made. Don't get these sandals wet. The ink bleeds out of the leather straps causing your skin under the straps to turn purple. Get ones with rubber straps if you plan on getting them wet.

                    Center thong between the toes just doesn't hold up to repeatedly getting wet, which for me, is the whole purpose of a sandal. This pair has lasted less than a year.
