Re: Good Deck Shoes?
West Marine might have upped their quality control, but my older (4 yrs?) WM boat shoe soles have gotten harder and developed a glaze. They are not longer "grabby" and are slippery even on dry land. This has been the case with at least 2 pairs of WM boat shoes.
I will stick with the authentic Sperrys, which have always kept their grip.
I have worn Sperrys for decades, and recieved a pair of WM shoes as a gift in 2009. They were completely worn out and hardened by the middle of 2012. My latest pair of Sperrys, that were purchased in 2008, are still grippy but ugly as sin, covered in paint and varnish.
Thanks to the folks at Crocs, i will be testing a pair of these this season;
I'll let you know how it goes.
