PDB Tested: Sebago Boating Shoes

Published online: Feb 20, 2013 PDB Tested Brady L. Kay

I've never been the kind of guy that likes to stand out in a crowd. The more I can blend in the better, no exceptions. So the last thing I want is a flashy pair of shoes that catches everyone's attention on the dock. Luckily Sebago engineers think like I do.

Last spring I went on the hunt for a new pair of boating shoes. It's my way of getting ready for the boating season, even if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate. At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I found what I was looking for with the Sebago Wave Extreme shoes.

You can go to its website if you're looking for information on "ventilator mesh" or "4-way Lycra stretch collars," because that doesn't mean a lot to me. I just liked the conservative look of the Black/Slate Blue color so for $105 I placed my order.

When I got them I just had to try them out so I slipped them on like a pair of comfy socks. They have a comfortable fit, but what I like most about them is the sticky OctoPod outsoles that really grip a wet dock or a vinyl deck on a boat.

Sebago makes a lot of different varieties in its Performance Marine line if you like the idea but fear we'll meet someday on a dock with matching shoes. These Wave Extreme shoes have a lot of style, are conservative and best of all are comfortable too. Summer is just getting started and it's not too late for you to get your pair coming.
