If you're looking for the three best shoes for boating, you've come to the right place. Sailers often have their own opinions about what shoes are perfect for when they go boating, and they believe their boating shoes are better than any other kind, no matter what other boaters say. If you've looked at most boaters' feet, their shoes are usually well worn and well loved. They don't like to replace their favorite boating shoes, but when those shoes just can't be worn anymore try out one of the following styles.
Many boaters swear by Rockport's Ports of Call Perth shoe. More than one customer reviewer said this Rockport shoe is the best boat shoe made. Another customer is on his fifth pair of Rockport Ports of Call Perth shoes. He won't buy anything else because each pair has lasted more than two years of daily wear. Another customer has worn his Rockport Ports of Call for 10 years and even fell overboard while wearing them. They sell for around $120.
Dockers Men's Castaway boat shoe comes with all the perks of the Dockers brand name. Customers claim this shoe is comfortable, rugged and stylish. The Castaways sell for around $55, which makes them even more attractive to a wide segment of sailors who want plenty of money left over to spend on their boats. One customer reviewer said he's only moved on to his second pair of Dockers boat shoes, because the last pair lasted 10 years.
Men's Casco Bay Boat Moccasins by L.L. Bean are popular with boaters. According to customer reviews, those who bought one pair, bought a second pair because they liked the first pair so much. Customers say they are comfortable, good looking and wear well, even when they are rough on them. The L.L. Bean Casco Bay Boat Moccasins sell for $59.
