XTRATUF

BLUEFIN

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

Avail­able in medium widths, this shoe still felt com­fort­ably wider when com­pared to other medium-width boat shoes. The up­per’s con­struc­tion is for­giv­ing in shape, and the fab­ric of­fers a pro­tec­tive feel to the shoe with­out bind­ing the foot un­com­fort­ably.

This shoe’s regatta styling in­cludes red, white and blue tones. The up­pers are synthetic-leather-trimmed mesh fab­ric with round-the-an­kle moc­casin­style laces. Stain­less-steel weep holes are mesh-cov­ered to keep out de­bris. They fea­ture Xtratuf’s go-to chevron non­mar­ring soles. They have great trac­tion but didn’t pick up de­bris in our ex­pe­ri­ence.

DRAINAGE: They wouldn’t drain but were among the fastest to dry.
