Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

This rugged boat shoe seems more like a boat­ing, hik­ing and driv­ing SUV. The soft glove fit is thanks to sup­ple oiled leather and foam-and-fab­ric lin­ing. The shoe rolls nicely from heel to toe for a com­fort­able stride.

The nat­u­ral and synthetic rub­ber sole won’t leave marks. The tread “pads” like a bear’s paw, giv­ing it hik­ing ap­peal. Its driv­ing style comes from the leather wrapped around the pods and sewn to the up­pers. All in all, it’s a good walker that won’t get you kicked off the boat for pick­ing up rocks in the treads. It comes in dark wood, ray (lighter brown) and storm gray.

DRAINAGE: Zero drainage doesn’t de­ter pur­chase be­cause the Ox­ford height makes water in­tru­sion less likely, and the shoe dried quickly. TRAC­TION DRY: 30 de­grees TRAC­TION WET: 28 de­grees DUNK AND DRY, 1 HOUR:
