    Hi, guys. I'm looking to purchase some boat shoes atm. I reaally like these ones I found on ebay but they're second hand, and a little too beaten up. So I'm trying to find some which are more or less identical (black soles, navy/brown) and I can't find any anywhere. The main problem is finding boat shoes with dark soles which seem to be quite hard to come by. So yeh if anyone could help me find a pair similar to these then I would be so very grateful.

    Thank's :)

    I maybe mistaken but I believe the dark sole makes it a camp moc. LL Bean, Quoddy and all the other Maine companies sell boat shoes with a camp sole.

    It takes at least 3 to 4 years of wear for boat shoes to break in "properly". Problem is, when they're "just right", they immediately fall apart. I'm partial to Sperry's and (some) Bass.
