The best boat I have and i have a lot
on September 11, 2013
This was a homerun purchase for me. Due to having feet that feel like I am walking on broken glass at all times, finding the right shoe to wear is extremely important. For the last year my collection has centered on the Sperry boat shoe with the deerskin insert and the Rockport boat shoe. The Sperry's were by far more comfortable but, to me, only looked good when I was wearing long pants. They just didn't look right when in shorts. I used the Rockport's while wearing shorts and while they looked better they were no where near as comfortable as the Sperry. An hour on my feat in the Rockport and I was in real pain.
I had seen the Croc Haborline advertised but could not find any in stock in my size. While researching the Crocs, I found a Sabago boat show which I ordered and found very comfortable but not as comfortable as the Sperry. My Rockport's became my yard work shoes and the Sabago became my shorts wearing shoes.
I then was able to find the crocs harbor line in stock on Amazon. I had heard the run large and since I wear a 10.5 I ordered the 10. No deal. Way to small. I returned and got the 11. Perfect fit and the MOST comfortable shoe I have ever worn. You have to wear socks with these otherwise your feet will feel too hot in them. That is the only minus I have for these shoes. Therefore these are relegated to my long pants only shoes. I now wear long pants more often only so I can wear these crocs.
Because the crocs are soo comfortable (I have bought another pair for my son) I couldn't take a point off for having to wear socks with them. Wearing a boat shoe in shorts with any type of sock just doesn't look good. I keep trying many different kind of low cut socks but haven't found one that looks right yet. Too bad because if these could be worn without socks I would replace all of my shoes with them. Some people might be ok with wearing these without socks. They are hot and clammy to me though and I am afraid my feet would really stink once I took them off. Other than that, these are the best boat shoe on the market.
