Nice shoe, I'm usually 11-11.5 wide. I got 11.5 wide, wish I got 11. I would suggest going towards smaller side of your size.

Beware if you plan to wear these without socks - Timberland chose to use fishing line to sew the shoes together inside. The ends of the fishing line stick into your feet - not comfortable at all!

It's great shoes and I think it's more comfortable than the Sperry's. However, I usually wear 8.5 shoes for running or basketball. But even 7.5 size of this one is a little bigger. So I'm gonna exchange it for a size 7 but I still love it.

These are great shoes. They have a little bit thicker sole than my Sperrys, which I like.

Awesome shoe, I wear it every day. Looks the same, hasn't changed one bit. However, the size runs larger than I expected. So get a size lower.

I typically wear a 9.5, but had to return it for a size 9; however, the shoe is really comfortable and looks great for many different occasions, but like other leather shoes it lacks in breathability. I bought an additional pair for when these wear out.

One of the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn. Perfect fit. In the process of buying my second pair while they are still making them.

These Timberland boat shoes are wonderful. They felt broken in 5 minutes after putting them on! The style and color are just as described on the Zappos Web site. I would highly recommend these Timberland shoes to anyone looking for very stylish and comfortable boat shoes.

Boat S

from By the Sea ....

I have to say I have been wearing these over the past 10 years + now. and for the first time I have to say the quality is starting to slip... Traditionally Timberland has been know for it's rugged quality boot and shoe. But I guess as with all things quality is being cut for profits... First and this always has been a problem is they run big. Traditionally 1/2 size too big so down size 1/2 when you order. Second, the shoe laces no longer go around the whole shoe where you can loosen or tighten the whole shoe (including the sides). Although the laces show on the side you can no longer adjust them. Finally, and this is a biggie they got rid of the Vibram sole which is another mistake and may cost them in sales over the long run... The new sole is not as comfortable or supportive as the Vibram sole. it's actually thinner as I look at my old shoes. This is very disappointing since I live in them all day... I have put addition support in the shoe but you can really feel it when you roll off the balls of your feet which is disappointing... I don't have that problem with the Vibram sole ones that I still wear plus they are non skid/non marking. Isn't that the purpose of boat shoes to begin with?

Great service. Product is not good, way below previous model. Leather quality is poor compared to old ones. Must be some green effort involved.

from West Des Moines, Iowa

Shoes were horribly mis-sized. Daily I wear 10.5, and for winter I wear a 11 due to heavier socks. I bought the Timberlands in a 10.5, and they were so over-sized that even with a medium weight sock, I can easily fit my index finger into the heel of the shoe. This is my second mis-sized pair of shoes in a row, and I have to wonder if it's due to Chinese manufacturing.

Perfect Fit ! I also ordered the same style on another website and the shoes were suspiciously discounted. The discounted ones were all narrower or seconds quality. Only these were a true wide fit. Thanks Zappos !

I am writing this review in December 2016. I bought these shoes in December 2014. I have worn them daily for the past two years and they have been holding up great. Leather has obviously been slightly scuffed and there is some wear on the sole. However, these shoes have been the longest lasting shoes I have ever owned. I have had pairs of hiking boots that have broken down with less mileage than these boat shoes. These shoes have taken a serious beating in rain, ocean spray and light snow and they have been holding up great and none of the stitching has come apart.

These are my husband's go-to shoe. I bought him the same pair 3 years ago, but now they are finally wearing out. Reordering was a no-brainer because they are attractive, practical, and comfortable. Please note: This shoe runs a full size larger than marked. We are thankful for Zappos' easy exchange policy.

Bought this for my husband, who has worn this very shoe forever. Timberland is evidently making them wider - and the medium width is too wide. Very sad because I thought this was a sure fit. Will have to return. Think I will try Sperry.

So hard to find original Timberlind top-siders. Glad to see Zappos come through for us again. These are truly the only shoes my husband wears. The color was a bit darker than pictured, which is exactly what he wanted. Size/fit were as expected. Wuality is top notch. You really can't go wrong with these shoes.

First of all I absolutely loathe boat shoes but I had to get something to wear with my nice shorts. I was totally expecting the shoe to be unattractive and uncomfortable but I was completely wrong. The color is perfect and goes with khaki, tan, olive, stone, navy colored shorts. They are super comfortable and nicely padded in the tongue and sole. Highly recommended. I wear them with the Sperry Top-Sider Canoe Liner 3 Pack no show socks and they add significant comfort and prevent sweaty feet. Plus, you really can't see them at all.
