Clearly, I am in the minority on the reviews here. Don’t like this shoe! I ordered these Sebago Docksides and the Sperry Topsiders. The style and construction of the two were comparable, but after trying them on, I am shocked to read how many review this Dockside as super comfortable. To me they are hard as bricks - the leather is hard and not pliable. In contrast, I slipped the Topsider on and it felt soft like a glove - it slipped right on and was instantly comfortable. I’ll be wearing these without socks so the feel inside was crucial. I am keeping the Sperry Topsider and these Sebago Docksides are on their way back.

Workmanship declining? These have been my standard shoe for over twenty years. I purchased a new pair of these one year ago to replace my 10 year old ones. Well, after 9 months of wear, the stitching on the right shoe has come out. They can hardly be worn. I don't know if workmanship has declined over the years, or if I just got a bad pair.

These shoes are extremely well made, with thick leather although they do run a bit narrow, even in the wide and are tearing up the back of my heel.

I love my new Docksides! They are so well made they should last me a lifetime! Have already been dockside and have worn them on a boat! Bought 1/2 size smaller on recommendation of other review.

I am usually in between a medium and wide width shoe but ordered a wide in this style and it still feels too thin! These run way narrow. Otherwise they are good shoes, the leather is very thick so I imagine that they'll last a long while. I use sock free saviors in them to eliminate having sweaty feet. I'm wondering if I should've returned them for men's which would've given me a little more width.

This shoe is very comfy, although I choose to wear high heels all day this shoe is a pleasant change. I can wear it with jeans, khakis, shorts and even a skirt. The best thing about these shoes is the older they get the better.

Leather? Gosh, these do not feel like leather shoes, although they are. But, they feel like a plastic-y leather, nothing soft, pliable or flexible about them. Not happy with that. Returning for that reason only. Zappos themselves have been great with helping me find a nice pair of boat shoes. Will keep with Zappos for all my shoe needs!

'Felt true to size' because I've worn Sebagos for many years & I know my size with them. I also appreciate the quality materials, ie, actual leather.

They are cute, but very hard. I have to wear socks with them, otherwise I'll get blisters. I'm still trying to break them in, but comfortable shoes should fit good from the start.

This shoe is classy. However, it runs a bit narrow. I have small feet and ordered the size 5 regular, and the shoe was too narrow towards the toes. Ah well.

I love these shoes! They're just like my old favorites from many years ago (except for the square toe in those days) and they were comfy right from the start without socks! Much more comfortable and a little wider than another pair I have of the other popular brand. Will buy more Sebagos for sure! Thanks again Zappos for being my all time hero of shoes.

These shoes are OK. I am a size 6, and these shoes ran a little large for me. A little on the bulky side and wide (I ordered b-medium) i would exchange for a smaller size but they don't come in 5.5. For this price, not too worth it.

I was excited when I found these deck shoes in a 8 1/2 Wide. Unfortunately they do not fit like a wide, feeling narrower through the toe. I exchanged them for a Rockport man's size 6 1/2 EE and they fit great!

I love these shoes. I have worn Docksides since high school and love the fit and versatility. I can wear them with shorts, dockers, capris whatever. The fit is perfect and they take no time to break in. Zappos is the best place to purchase them, as you get the variety of color and size without having to run around town looking for them. Keep up the good work.

Daughter’s docksides (for school uniform) We had tried them on in the store and her normal size was too big. One half size smaller fit perfectly. They arrived very quickly. Very happy with customer service and the shoes

Great all-around shoe! Very comfortable all-around shoe, not only boating but any activity. Although Sebago's leather is not as soft as Sperry's right out of the box, they do break-in fairly quickly. Sebago's run true to size, unlike Sperry's which I think run 1/2 size smaller. A tip on keeping the rawhide laces tied: get the laces wet first, then tighten the bow...it'll stay tighter longer. These shoes love water...no worries about getting them wet!
