Almost as good as Bass,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timberland Men's Earthkeepers Kiawah Bay Boat Shoe (Shoes)
I've been looking for a replacement to a pair of Bass boat shoes for a few years. (Sadly, Bass no longer makes a boat shoe, or at least I couldn't find any, even at their outlet store) I've tried several different brands and have been disappointed by all. I've tried Dockers (absolute crap), Sperry (nice but mine had several quality issues), and Nautica (not bad but I was never able to get them "broken in", just stayed too stiff. To be fair, it might have just been the pair I had but they were bad enough to make me try a different brand). This is my first pair of Timberlands. I've only had them for a couple weeks now and they are already broken in-Nice!
Based on the other reviews here, I ordered them one-half size smaller than I usually get and they fit perfectly, even for a wide (EE) size.
In addition to being reasonably priced, they use some recycled material in the construction. My pair was made in Bangladesh but I haven't noted any quality issues as yet. Also, the color options are very nice. I bought the chocolate but the taupe and dark brown are also nice.
If you are looking for a comfortable, well-made boat shoe, these will fit the bill.
