If these shoes were any lighter you'd swear they forgot to put them in the box.
It isn't often that a pair of shoes comes along that makes you forget you have them on. That is until you take them off at the end of the day and immediately put them back on. Sperry's Gamefish 3-Eye Boat Shoes are that comfortable. Purpose-built with your waterlife needs in mind, these shoes have more going for them than their obvious good looks. Keep reading and we'll let you in on the secrets behind their mastery of all things in, on and around the water. Imported.
The Uppers: Their premium nubuck and full-grain leather uppers feature handsewn construction for durability and a luxurious look and feel. They not only look like they're ready for anything, they are actually 37% lighter than Sperry's original Billfish and 10% lighter than their Billfish Ultralite boat shoes.
Vulcanized Construction: That's where the rubber meets the...er...leather! Using high temperatures, the upper is securely bonded to the outsoles for a classic look that's also strong and durable.
The Lacing: A feature Sperry shoes are known for—their 360° Lacing System™ with rust proof eyelets. Unlike lesser boat shoes, Sperry provides for a secure fit all the way around your feet, not just across your insteps. Why does that matter? When your shoes get wet they have a tendency to separate themselves from you if they aren't tight around the outside of your feet. The lacing also improves overall stability since it will keep your shoes from slipping around on your feet.
The Midsoles: Sperry uses lightweight ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) in the midsoles for cushioning. And since they run the length of the shoes, these cushioned midsoles provide all-day, under-foot shock absorption.
SON-R Technology™: This patented system features a unique outsole design that works in combination with an interactive footbed to provide natural sensory feedback and awareness for greater stability and agility on multiple surfaces. This design enhances proprioception (the unconscious perception of movement and spacial orientation), effectively giving you the ability to See With Your Feet. Articulating outsole pods transfer sensitive information from whatever surface you're on to corresponding pods in the removable, interactive, compression-molded EVA footbeds and then to your feet.
Adaptive Wave-Siping™: Tiny, wavy slits in the rubber outsoles, in combination with larger and deeper wavy grooves, disperse water away from the soles and give you incredible grip. Whether your footing is wet or dry, these outsoles will help prevent you from becoming separated from the deck of your boat.
Non-Marking: In addition to their nonslip properties, the soles won't make ugly black marks on the deck of the boat like ordinary shoes. That's particularly important if scrubbing ugly black marks off the deck isn't your favorite part of boating.
