    Well worth the $! - 2/2/2015
    By: from Monument, Colorado

    I had been looking for a good pair of knock around shoes and the Gokey's filled the bill. Nice looking, comfy and a good fit right out of the box (you need to wear them in a tad to soften them up). They go well with Jeans or Chinos and have become my "go to" shoes. I had been wearing a competitors shoe in the past but have no further need to look elsewhere again . . . these have fast become my favorites and I expect them to last longer than I do. Go get a pair!

    ...but they're also refined, tough, good-looking, well-made, and durable. Almost inspires me to by a boat to wear them on.

    Awesome Boat Shoes - 1/13/2015
    By: from New England

    These are absolutely awesome boat shoes that are not only extremely comfortable but super supportive I've worn lots of boat shoes over the years, but these are definitely far superior. These shoes can take a beating but still look great. I treat them with Orvis leather conditioner regularly, and they just get better and better each time I wear them. I highly recommend these shoes if you want great comfort and durability. Treat yourself and your feet to a pair of these and, I'm sure you'll never buy another pair of boat shoes. These look great with jeans or shorts and are most comfortable with or without socks. A great product and best of all, they are made in the United States!

    Super shoe - 11/11/2014
    By: from Harpers Ferry, WV

    Been to 2 foot specialists for pain in foot who recommended I get out of "athletic type" shoe. I had owned (and wore out) a pair of Gokey's boat shoes many years ago and decided to get another. Wish I had done so right after the last pair wore out!!! Could have saved myself (and my feet) from a lot of in-between grief. So comfy and no more pain!

    Best casual loafer - 11/4/2014
    By: from East Tennessee

    The Durable Boat Shoe is a perfect casual loafer for a man who loves the outdoors. I bought a pair many years ago and they are going strong, but pretty well scuffed up. I wanted an new pair just like I have been wearing but more presentable in public. I'm so glad the same shoe is still available.

    Asymmetrical Quality - 10/25/2014
    By: from Texas

    Very nice quality and construction. Sturdy and a classic look. The thing that is disappointing is that being handmade they are asymmetrically built. However, I have had other handmade shoes and boots that were not like this. Very expensive to have this problem. However, I do like them overall and they will meet my need.

    Can be heavier than other boat shoes - 10/22/2014
    By: from Texas

    But that said they have worn very well over the last 4 years or so. The leather is soft and will stretch a tiny bit. And made in the USA, long wearing, it's worth the extra cost because it's a top of the line boat shoe. Well done.

    Quality but concern - 10/17/2014
    By: from Elmhurst, IL

    I chose Gokey Boat shoes because of my experience with their quality products. I worn the shoes nearly every day from April to September. Much to my chagrin the sole separated from the body of the shoe. Orvis took charge replacing with new shoes within just days and than returning the original pair. This service, dependability and quality of their products are the reasons I buy at Orvis.
