Men's Dorado™ Slip-On PFG Shoes
Wear this slip-on and you won't slip on your boat, SUP, kayak or any other wet surface.
The last thing you want to do is slip up and wear slippery shoes when you're going after trophy fish. If you have your choice, you're also not going to want heavy, soggy shoes that slow you down when you're dashing from side to side to keep the previously mentioned trophy fish from getting tangled around your outboard. Columbia's Dorado™ Slip-On PFG Shoes solve all those problems. By using breathable synthetic mesh for their uppers, these shoes will feel as light when they get wet as when you first put them on. And if that wasn't enough, Columbia gave them the advanced water and stain resistant treatment known as Omni-Shield Blood 'n Guts™ that handles pretty much anything you would encounter on a day out fishing so you can wear them to the BBQ afterwards without missing a beat. You'll also discover their Omni-Grip™ outsoles ensure you'll have the traction you need to stay upright when the going gets slippery—by land or by sea. Lightweight Techlite™ midsoles offer such comfortable cushioning and energy return that you'll be back on the water as fast as you can arrange another sick day from work (cough, cough). Imported.
The Look: This high-tech deck shoe with technical fishing features is part of Columbia's PFG (Performance Fishing Gear) collection, so you know you're getting shoes designed for some serious fishing, and not just to look like it.
The Uppers: No one wants to wear a pair of soggy, heavy shoes all day. So Columbia used mesh for these uppers to help them shed any water that gets inside and dry quickly. They're also breathable so your feet stay happy. The elastic gore insets help keep them secure as you move about your boat. A handy heel loop makes it easier to pull them on when your feet are wet.
Omni-Shield Blood 'n Guts: They've got to be kidding, right? Slime? Blood? Fish guts? Chum? Oily water? Actually, they're not. This treatment is specially formulated to provide two lines of defense to prevent and remove stains. Sure, they could have just coated these shoes with some kind of thick rubber that wouldn't absorb anything shy of nuclear waste, but then they would be hot, clammy and uncomfortable. Omni-Shield Blood 'n Guts is different. Its long-lasting repellency doesn't affect the breathability or the feel of the uppers. Plus, the stain release properties ensure an easy cleanup.
The Insoles: Removable Techlite comfort system footbeds provide the extra support and cushioning you need when you're on your feet all day. Drying is hastened by pulling the insoles out between wearings.
The Midsoles: Once again, lightweight Techlite is used to provide immediate and long-lasting superior cushioning and higher energy return. The lower durometer ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) offers the ultimate in comfort and shock absorption.
The Outsoles: Wet gelcoat, slippery rocks, and heeling decks are no problem for Omni-Grip non-slip rubber outsoles. This advanced traction features specially formulated compounds and treads that ensure stability, and the right grip, for every environment. Omni-Grip features siping (razor-thin cuts in the rubber) so they grip even more when you're fishing in, on and around water. They also have a perimeter design for stable strides on solid ground. Not only that, they're non-marking. That means they won't leave ugly black streaks on white gelcoat.
