West Marine Deluxe
Style: Leather moc
Best Application: Street casual, dry decks
Top Line: This is the dressiest boat shoe of our test, with smooth, satin/glossy leather uppers and leather laces.
Wins: Though the shoe exhibited no drainage, its well-oiled leather resisted absorption, giving it a good score in our dry test. The leather also held its satin sheen after our dunk test.
Losses: Weep holes would have put this shoe near the top of our list, but it showed no sign of draining and it scuffed the deck, darn it.
Finish Line: Its glossy leather and Friday-casual looks made it a good fit for yachting events and casual wear.
