The classic deck shoe is one of the most comfortable casual traditional shoe designs out there, and the Allen Edmonds Maritimes are a classic take on the style, beautifully built with Horween Chromexcel full-grain pull-up leather. In this review I cover the history of the boat shoe, an overview of AE, and my experience with these shoes, which I got at a great discount last fall. There are many choices in this style around this price range, this is a solid choice with simply breathtaking leather. They are worth considering, without any major flaws, if you can accept the idea of a pair of imported Allen Edmonds.

Whatever happened to good strong well made boat shoes? All you can get any more are flimsy thin soled cutsie representations of 'boat shoes'. Even the best Sebegos ( not quite as debilitated as Sperry ) are half of a good boat shoe. Granted the top of the line Sebegos are lined, soles are a little bit thicker and the uppers are good leather. But they're still wannabe boat shoes. Ticks me OFF!

reed scott - I'm not into boat shoes but look into Rancourt or Quoddy. Both are expensive but high quality and many great reviews (if high quality in a boat shoe is important).

Are these shoes durable? I need them for walking (not intensive, but on a regular basis).

How is the stitching holding up, especially as to the sole stitching? My last three pair of original topsiders have stitching material that holds the soles to the upper not lasting.

My go-to summer shoes are definitely the boat shoes.  They are very versatile and can be dressed down with a pair of shorts or jeans, and they can be dressed up with a pair of cotton/linen pants.  I currently have several pairs of Sperry and Sebago shoes in both leather and suede.  Of they two brands, I prefer the Sebago's.  I think the construction of the shoe is a little better.  After watching your video though I must say I am intrigued by the Allen Edmonds Maritime shoes.  I'll have to check them out!

Horween leather is overrated. I have a leather boot from Chippewa made from Horween leather and it creases so easily and it makes it look old very quickly . The only premium aspect with Horween leather on my boot is that the leather is thick and it looks like it will last a very long time, but it just ages way too easily. I even treated the boot with Nikwax waterproofing leather treatment before wearing it out which prevents further premature wear on the leather, but that doesn't even stop the creasing.

On another note, my Sperry Top Sider Mako boot shoes utilizes EXCELLENT leather that looks brand even after over 6 months of wear and it is pretreated to be water resistant. There is almost zero creasing on my Sperry Top Sider Mako too. I bought it on sale for 60 dollars and it is an amazing shoe for everyday wear to business casual for the workplace.

Love the video! For my generation maritime style shoes like these are everywhere. I personally go with Sperry's what's your thoughts on that brand and any experience you had with them?

Interesting history lesson. While we're on the topic of shoes have you ever thought about trying Xero Shoe? http://xeroshoes.com/ I've been considering purchasing a pair for pool & beach usage this summer.

Go-to summer shoes - source sandals. Man, did I give those things a beating in the San Rafael Desert doing field work last summer, walking through sand, gravel and bare sandstone for over three weeks, all day, every day. Even my hiking boots, which I used less, fell apart unfortunately, but the sandals lasted for a long time and seems like they will continue to do so. When sand gets into all the nooks and crannies and also the fabric, it will destroy footwear from inside, but it doesn't seem to have done a lot of damage. Kicked a couple of cactuses though, and sandals don't offer great protection.

What kind of socks would you wear with these shoes?
kaikaichen
kaikaichen - 4 years ago
Boat shoes are traditionally worn without socks, but if you do wear socks with them (like I do), I recommend those super low-cut, no-show socks that are completely invisible when wearing the shoes.

Having grown up sailing, I can say from experience this style of herringbone tread works well on a wet, smooth surface. Does it hold up on concrete and asphalt?

@Abir Chaudhuri i think i got less than a year out of mine. Unfortunately they're not resoleable, so I wouldn't buy them again unless i found a killer sale. Shame because they look great and they are extremely comfortable.
