Regarding colors of the Maritime, I don't know their Pantone colors or anything, but sports colors can be useful.
I can only speak of the two sent to me and the ones I saw in the store but the navy is VERY dark. Almost black indoors. More of a NY Yankees cap navy than a Tigers cap navy.
Regarding the red, it is not a Texas Tech or Nebraska red but rather a slightly darker Arkansas or Alabama home jersey.
I ordered both fully expecting to keep the navy and return the red due to the former being more versatile. Given the navy is so dark and the red looks so nice, I think I'm about to reverse my decision.
I think most would agree the overall most versatile color would be the golden brown but my old beater Gold Cups are that color and I can't bear the thought of either (i) tossing them or (ii) having two pair of boat shoes the same color.
I had a different experience - Just got back from the store - wound up with four more pairs. Had ordered in the Kirkwood in both the dark and golden brown and ended up with.....neither. Don't get me wrong - they're top notch, probably one of the best boat shoes I've ever tried - including the older AEs like the Westbrook and other stuff from Sperry Goldcup. Went with my 65 last size (down 0.5 length) and the fit was fine, some minor bowing, drop of heel slip, but just enough room up front that they were very comfortable. But I had to consider - I'm just not a boat shoe guy. You could have given me the best boat shoes in the world, they just wouldn't be enough to "convert" me. Absolutely fantastic for anyone who can get good use out of them, but I just couldn't see it for myself. Agree - the navy is wickedly dark but they look really nice. The dark brown and light brown were really similar, but the harsh contrast of the dark brown with the white sole made me think the golden was the better of the two.
