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.
