Customer reviews for Columbia Men's Drainmaker™ II PFG

Columbia Men's Drainmaker™ II PFG

With bigger, more numerous drainage ports in the heel and forefoot, the updated Drainmaker II drains water 33% faster than its predecessor. Add siped lugs for increased traction on wet surfaces and new internal frame support and you’ve got an ideal lightweight shoe for staying safe and comfortable during extended waterside activities.

This is my second pair of these shoes. I spend over 150 days in a boat and during the summer these are the shoes to wear. Keep my feet cool and they work great in the rain.
I would recommend this product.

Could be used for many purposes but mine was for sailing small boats. On a nice windy day, your sure to get wet tacking, jibing or just downwind running. These shoes drained nicely and fit well too. To prevent chaffing, I use ankle neoprene socks (usually used with snorkeling fins) and the combination was great. I wouldn't hesitate to use this combination with any other wet activities.
I would recommend this product.

After spending a full day on the water fishing, I noticed my back was not getting stiff like it usually did when the waters were choppy,.... Now I wear them all the time.
I would recommend this product.

I was recently in Florida fishing with two friends, one a professional sportfishing guide, and they both were wearing a pair of Drainmakers... I had not seen them before and asked them about them and they both said they were really great and showed me how they drain water. The deck of many boats get very wet, especially when getting bait or in rough seas or landing a big fish. These shoes keep you dry! I bought a pair the next week in Aruba at the Columbia store and loved them... I also ordered a second pair on-line and they are now my go to footwear in a boat. Very clever design and very effective!
I would recommend this product.

I would recommend this product.

The shoe appears to be of quality, only time will tell.
The ability to tie the shoes is better than the draw string as the draw string feature wears out and slips. still same great fitting shoe.
I would recommend this product.

I've had these shoes for about a month and they are so comfortable I try and wear them everywhere. The only negative is they take a couple hours to dry. However, I use them for fishing and wearing around town and they work great. Don't get rid of these anytime soon.
I would recommend this product.
