Rugged Shark Bill Dance
Style: Rugged leather, oxford
Sole: Rugged, siped
Best Application: Street casual, dry decks, boating wet decks/special boating dry decks
Top Line: This rugged, siped sole has good arch support and padded comfort. It’s designed to cross over from nonskid hard decks to carpeted decks without losing traction on either.
Wins: It scored well in our running traction test and was even one of the “stickier” shoes in the puddle-surf test.
Losses: This shoe did not drain in our two-minute drain test, and it absorbed half the water we poured in it.
Finish Line: The shoe is ruggedly comfortable and ideal for traction on wet or dry decks. Drainage eyelets in the uppers would have made this shoe a top scorer.
