I found the Quality/Price ratio of these shoes warrants 5 stars. They're not very expensive, have held up well, and performed their function flawlessly GIVEN the limitations of the product.
Having said that let me take a little back. Apparently EVERY brand of pool shoes uses water soluble glue to hold the shoe insert in place. No one knows why this is but we all know THAT it is. Accept this and move on. I used a hot glue gun to fix mine. If you care to copy me note that the operative word there is HOT. This stuff turns out to be capable of causing second degree burns on your hands. You might want to look into something called "Shoe Goo". There are several varieties on Amazon and my pool exercise instructor swears by the stuff. Since she doesn't have any burn scars on her hands I think this might be good advice.
Once the insoles were glued back in the shoes performed flawlessly.
ADVICE & OBSERVATION
These shoes are the pull on type as opposed to those with some kind of fastener (zipper, Velcro). Since pool shoes only work when they're pretty snug you might want to think about that. I'm working out in the pool due to a back injury and bending over long enough to pull these shoes on causes some pain. That's a defect in the reviewer however and not the product. If you have a similar limitation you might want to look at another model.
I normally take a size 12EE (extra wide) shoe. I ordered these in size 11 and they fit correctly meaning they don't allow my foot to slide around inside them while I'm doing my water buffalo impersonation.
Finally, I've seen several reviews complaining that shoes like this do not keep sand away from your pinky toe when worn at the beach.Read more ›
ha! it's funny when you say it fast.
Seriously, though (if I really *can* be serious about a boat shoe), these are pretty good. i used them for more than a year, and while the insole did come loose (I glued it back in) I've been pleased with these. they're all day comfortable, and the do what they say... and what do they say? They say " boat shoe boat shoe boat shoe boat shoe boat shoe."
I like the using them.
This one seems to have an uncured rubber sole -- or at least it is much softer than before.
It is getting torn up quickly and will not last long at all.
I hope the next batch are better.
