WORLD WIDE SPORTSMAN
These are track-shoe comfortable with a deeply padded interior. These are not waterproof and are best suited to casual-dress boating in dry conditions, but their soles are nonmarring, and the tread design won’t pick up rocks. Bass Pro Shops calls them slip-ons, but it’s easier to use the laces.
A memory-foam foot bed renders these ideal for boat shows, yachts, and the office on casual Friday. Ventilated sides let feet breathe, and oiled leather uppers are bonded to the flexible outsole. The eyelets are bronze-finished metal. DRAINAGE: Not all boat shoes are advertised to be waterproof and these aren’t. They didn’t drain and dried slowly but were comfy out of the box.
