LAKEFRONT 2-EYE

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

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.
