Once upon a time, a pirate embarked on a grand adventure. He started in the South Pacific with a pair of laced up Sanuk Shore Leave Shoes. He loved the soft cushiony EVA sole, and he was astounded with the durable rubber outsole. Henceforth, he set sail for the far north to share his love of the Sanuk Shore Leave Shoe and was caught in a terrible storm when he lost the laces in his Shore Leave shoes. The poor pirate was at a loss till he realized that Sanuk had designed the Shore Leave to fit like a slipper without laces. The pirate rejoiced in his luck and took his final shore leave somewhere near Miami where he now sells used hubcaps.

I switch off between these and my Sperry's pretty much any given day. I like the look of sperry's slightly more, but these are cool boat shoes as well. Very little stink even after tons of use. Going on 2 years with these and they are still going strong! Look basically new.
Sanuk does it again.
These are some really comfortable shoes to kick around in. It definitely lives up to the Sanuk name. The leather is nice and sturdy, yet still soft enough to be comfortable to walk around in. These shoes are stylish as well, looks great with jeans or khakis.
most comfortable shoes i own
what more can I say? I read other reviews of these before I bought them, and I totally agree; these are my new favorite shoes among a pretty good lineup. The comfort is unsurpassed by anything else in my shoe closet. Rock 'em with or without socks....totally optional
the secrets outs
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
no socks no problem
All leather interior, bomber construction, perforation works and these are great for the no sock look!
Since they seem to only come in full sizes I suggest you size up not down. I wear a size 9.5, tried 9 but they were too small so I exchanged for 10 and that worked out perfectly.

For the Hubs
Got these for my hubs for his birthday. He keeps trying boat shoes but can never seem to find just the right one and sense I LOVE my sanuks, I thought I would get him these. He has a wide foot so I thought these might work well for him, he said they are a little snug across the widest part of his foot but not so much that he won't wear them. He commented that he liked the lightness of them and that they would be good for when he wants a full shoe in warmer weather. He wears them without the laces and it's a testament to how much he likes them that he actually wears them!

is the grey more like a tan, or really grey? looks tan in the pics...
The Grey is definitely more tan than Grey. They're just trying to trick you with the name. The tan is slightly washed out though. So maybe Grey is a fitting name? But you're right. Its tan. Hope that helps.
Lacking in Durability
Comfy shoe for sure and a nice alternative to Sperry's - how-ev-ah - the shoe gets docked a couple points for it's construction. The rubber lower is starting to split between the outsole and the sole. As a whole, both shoes are just getting beat up really quick. I like the style and fit as much as other Sanuks but tread lightly for longevity.
Favorite pair of shoes for sure
I got these a while back and they are probably my favorite/most worn pair of shoes. Since I live in Chicago, I can't wear them year round..but I wore them up to the first real snow. These are so light weight and feel like a glove on the feet. I'd say the shoe size is true to size (meaning, they dont run slimmer or wider or bigger then the typical shoe size, assuming you have "normal" feet). Pick up a pair from here for sure, prices are the lowest here from what I've found.
I LOVE these kicks! Very comfortable. They can take a beating. I'm normally somewhere between 11 - 11 1/2. The 11's fit perfectly. Worth the dough. Can wear these practically anywhere and with anything. Would like to buy another pair for nice outings since I've beaten these ones up.
Any timeframe on the next shipment to come...
