LAKE­SIDE

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

My last pair of Lake­sides are 6 years old, still tough as nails, and look good enough for ca­sual Fri­days. They of­fer a sta­ble stance for boats in mo­tion and a pro­tec­tive sole that’s tough but sup­ple. They’ve been com­fort­able at trade shows, bass fish­ing all day, and dash­ing through the air­port.

Oiled leather up­pers are breath­able thanks to styled fab­ric side­walls and mois­ture wick­ing in­side. Soles with siped pods and dual tex­tures add to the grip. Dual-den­sity EVA in­soles and a non­metal­lic shank give plenty of arch sup­port plus flex­i­bil­ity. Durable stitch­ing and a rugged ca­sual look help en­sure the time­less look stays time­less. DRAINAGE: They drained slowly but dried more quickly than fab­ric shoes.
