Great boat shoes
May 11, 2019
Great boat shoe with non slip and keeps feet dry with no fabric. I used to have to travel on fishing trips with two pairs of shoes. One for dry land and one for the boat. Now only need to bring these.

I wear these extremely comfortable fishing shoes all the time and every where. Why when I finally take them off my feet have distinct tan marks. My friends and family are all considering getting a pair their self . As for me I just bought my second pair. When these wear out I won't hesitate to reorder. Thanks for offering such a Great product at a reasonable price.

Best Fishing/Boating Shoe on the market

I wear these shoes pretty much year around and this is my sixth pair. They are so light weight and comfortable that you don't want to wear anything else. Tackle Direct is the best place to get them. They always have all the sizes and colors available and their service is "first rate".
ProsLight weight, water resistant, non skid

Bought em again
December 23, 2015
I bought these 2 years ago and use them only in the summers, and only fishing. They are very comfortable and provide a good cushion for your legs/back at speed on the boat. My only complaint is that the broke when I was engaged with a large pelagic over the summer. A decent sized piece of the webbing cracked, not sure how, I guess i was putting a lot of stress on it bracing myself? Anyway, the were/are still wearable but I bought a new pair because of the comfort...

My arches have never felt this good and no back pain!
Pros I normally wear a size 10 but they were too big so I ordered a size 9 and they were perfect fit also if they get dirty all you do is rinse them off and away you go again great concept
Cons Should offer them in more colors, you would sell lots more

Great boat shoe
April 19, 2015
Great for the boat, provides the shoe like protection and yet can get soaked and dry out in no time. Much more comfortable and easy to get on and off than a regular boat shoe they will stay wet and smell for the rest of the day. Way better than crocs
Proslightweight comfortable breathable easy on and off.
Constread could be better, some minor slips here and there, but that's while I was chumming with fish oil on a wet deck, so that could happen with any shoe, still great product

To be returned
December 17, 2014
Bought these with the intent to be used for kayak fishing including wading. These shoes may be fine for walking around but their Velcro closure strap is inadequate to secure the shoe to the foot should you be wading in anything, i.e., mud, other than firm bottoms. Shoe comes off too easily. This shoe could be greatly improved with a better closure strap system perhaps even including a buckle vs. Velcro.

My new favorite shoe
October 19, 2014
I live in Florida and I spend a lot of time at the beach. Mostly surf fishing, so I was looking for a shoe that I could wear and not have to worry about cutting my feet and could handle the salt water and then hosing em off to get the salt and sand off of them. . I got these shoes about a month ago and have used them every time which is about 10 times so far. I am so happy with these shoes that I was going to buy a second pair but I didn't need to. I wear these shoes everywhere. They are so comfortable and cool.
ProsWaterproof. Comfort. Easy on and off
ConsPrice. Although they are worth the price. I would be happier if they were cheaper.

Very Comfortable!
June 2, 2014
Being a Shimano Guy, I tend to be a little biased when rating their products. However, with these sandals, they speak for themselves! I bought them primarily for boat fishing, as I do a lot of standing. And I am on my second major back surgery, so buying quality foot wear is very important to me. And these sandals are of very high quality. They are very comfortable as they are durable. And they feel like you are walking on air, and have an arch. Similar to the Crocs. Except they are closed at the heel. And they are incredibly light. They also grip very well to the boat deck. And they do not slip off when they get wet, like the Crocs do when wet. They also have a D Ring on the top side of the shoe. Which I presume is for securing a wader band strap and hook to the shoe. However, do not hold me to that. The very few issues I have with them are trivial, yet should be mentioned. The Velcro strap on the outside of the shoe I can see wearing over time, and not secure well. A very good idea another reviewer had with this strap was to glue it permanently shut. They are also cut big. For instance, I normally wear a size 13. It was too big, so I went with a size 12, which fit perfectly. If the sandal is too big, it will act like a flip flop when walking. I wish Shimano would make a closed sandal, for complete protection from UV Rays. For now, I will gladly lather up my feet with sun block. In all, a very good, super comfortable boat/fishing shoe. And Tackle Direct has them priced right.
ProsSuper comfortable and light weight, Durable, Grips very well on boat deck, Feet will not slip out of the sandal when wet, Affordable
ConsSized 1 size big, Velcro strap will wear over time, incomplete protection from UV Rays

Slow delivery
January 18, 2014
Ordered item December 26. Item was represented as being in stock. Notified item shipped January 9. Received at end of day on January 14. Nearly 3 weeks to get delivery from New Jersey?
Merchant Response:Sorry we were down to the last size 6 and it was a discrepancy in our inventory. Shimano was closed for inventory until 1/6 and we couldn't order anything until then and that is why it shipped out on 1/9. We have 10 in stock in every other size. I refunded your shipping for any inconvenience caused by this.

Most comfortable fishing shoe
June 27, 2013
I bought these for an overnight 32 hour tuna trip. I never took them off the entire time. When reeling in the big tuna there was no slipping and very secure. This is a great non marking fishing or beach shoe and more comfortable that any shoe I have ever used.

Very comfortable and easy to wear. These run a little on the large size, more so in width. The insoles take some getting used to, so keep wearing them around the house before taking off on an all-day adventure.

These shoes mare the best marine shoe,s I have ever had. I wore mine every where. In the Yard to the beach, boating, rock fishing and even to the city. they are Very strong also and does not slip on any boat surface. The only issue I've had with this shoes is that i bought mine a bit too big ,and therefore it would slip off my feet when it got wet.

The Evair shoe is the most comfortable shoe that is designed for things that you do in and around water. They are great for fishing,They are great for fishing, boating, kayaking, jet skiing and surfing. They make great deck shoes because they are non-marking and have water-canal design for a great grip.

Good, not great
June 7, 2012
These are very comfortable and durable shoes. In addition the camo pair I ordered look great. Only one drawback: the velcro fastener on the side does not work well. It comes loose easily, which is not a good thing when wade-fishing on sticky soil. Your sandals can be sucked off easily....So I super-glued the fastener permanently shut. Makes putting on and taking off more difficult, but at least they stay on in the water.
