Just purchased my 2nd pair of these. I was concerned that the style would go out of production and these are BY FAR the most COMFORTABLE shoes I have ever owned.
Hoping they restock the leather ones soon as I want a pair of those also...
I would recommend this product.

Originally from Dallas, Texas and never saw a boat shoe until the U.S. Naval Academy. I have now been wearing boat shoes daily since 1979. This shoe is functional, very comfortable and extremely durable.
Price, comfort and style all pluses and make this a great casual shoe as well.
I would recommend this product.

Not knowing if these were as good as stated is an understatement. They are comfortable, good looking, easy on my feet -which are picky with shoes. I liked them so much I ordered extra pairs for the future. Good all around shoe for any occasion. my wife even commented on them . So two thumbs up and thanks. My foot is a 12 and these are a perfect 12 match.
I would recommend this product.

I guide over 150 days a year in the Los Angeles Saltwater, so I spend some long days on the boat.
The Columbia Boatdrainers are not only great looking, but extremely confortable. I have worn all the top brands and this by far is my favorite shoe. Excellent boat shoe!

i was in need of a new river shoe and decided to give these a try. i was so impressed by the way they looked i am reluctant to put them in the mud and water i usually end up in. they would look good no matter where you go; work, play, church, wherever. they were soft and comfortable with no break in period for me. the non marking soles will be great on a boat deck as well.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these shoes to replace an older pair of Columbia Boat Shoes that had lasted me well over 10 years, but alas, were beginning to come apart. I had really hoped to find the exact same shoes, but these were as close as I could find. It seems anymore that if you like a product, you better buy 2 because manufacturers tend to change models very quickly. These were old enough that I was not surprised to find them no longer there. We'll wait to see if these are as good or last as long.
I would recommend this product.

I am a devoted fan of anything Columbia, and this is the first product to disappoint. I purchased these shoes to replace a worn Columbia PFG fishing shoe that has served me well. The pictures in print show laces that are tucked in giving the impression that thay are the quick tie type, and turn out to be standard shoe laces. the fit is a little short in length, but tolerable. My disappointmnet with the shoe lies in the fact that they bleed blue dye on your skin when wet, and take forever to dry out. I had to pack them away while still damp afgter 2 days, and they ruined a shirt they came in contact with. the blue dye will stain clothing and your feet, and it is not easily removed with soap and water. I like the style of this shoe however I would not recommed it, and had I known about the laces and the color runnig I would not have made this purchase.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought the tan ones for my husband who is on a boat several times a week. He said they are very comfortable and drain well. He did say they do take some time to dry but that is to be expected. I bought him two other pairs of Power Drain shoes by Colombia and he loves those as well.
I would recommend this product.

Good looking, very comfortable shoe. Can go from boat to casual evening easily. Lace running through the heel is practical for snugging the heel when wearing w/o socks.

As a boat captain I was looking for a shoe to wear to work. These are perfect for me. Wear all day and they are very comfortable. And, like any good boat shoe, this pair give excellent traction on wet surfaces. If they last a year or more, I will definitely get another pair to replace these.
I would recommend this product.

I am a professional fisherman. I needed a light-weight water proof sneaker, I choose your "boatdrain" model. Although I haven"t "put them thru a good testyet they appear exactly what I wanted. I will be leaving for Costa Rica very soon - then we will see just how good I think they are.
I would recommend this product.
