You may not own a boat or even been on a boat, but that shouldn’t dampen your interest in this minimalist boat shoe. We’ve taken our original Mariner, kept it’s natural shape, wide toebox, and ultra-minimalist design and decked out the rest! The flexible, zero-drop outsole will bring you back down to sea level and if scuffing your skib is a concern, know that the sole is non-marking. Forget about any anchors dragging you down, because the Mariner 2’s lightweight form comes in at a mere 8.9oz. With those features you might assume we avoided quality materials, but think again, because our newly designed insole featuring a 1.0mm pigskin leather/4.0mm breathable open cell PU compliments our top quality 1.8mm leather upper so much that your barefoot funk will certainly be kept at bay.
These boat shoes will help promote better balance more than any dose of Dramamine; increase mobility in the saltiest of sea legs; and help alleviate certain foot ailments such as bunions and hammertoes. There may be plenty of fish in this sea, but none are going to compare to the comfortability, sustainability, and functionality of the Mariner 2. A wise man once said, “He who waits for his ship to come in, always misses the boat”. Don’t let the Mariner 2 slip by. Hook yourself a pair now!
Are the Mariners waterproof?
-No, they are not waterproof.
Are the Mariners non-slip?
-They are not. We’re planning on designing a non-slip shoe in the future!
What type of leather is used for the Mariner?
-We use a full grain cow leather to develop the upper of the shoe. The removable insole is a full grain pigskin which has antibacterial properties. You know what that means? No smelly foot-funk!
Do I need to break in my Mariners?
-As everyone’s feet are different, some of you may experience a “break in” period. The good news is that our leather is designed to soften and mold to your feet, in time, with wear. We recommend that if you do need to break your shoes in, start by wearing them over a short time and gradually increase your duration of wear. This will allow your shoes and feet to adjust accordingly.
I LOVE MY NEW SHOES!!!!! AFTER ALL THESE YEARS MY SEARCH IS FINALLY OVER!!!! I'm sorry, but I just don't have narrow pointy feet!!! (Who does??) And I just could no longer walk with my body weight fully on my forefoot because of insoles with slightly raised heels. (No wonder everybody needs their knees replaced by age 60, right?). Anyway, You are brilliant!! Job well done!! I repeat, Job well done!!!
My deepest gratitude :)
I cannot thank you enough for having designed your amazing shoes! I am 71 years old, and as far back as I can remember I have been uncomfortable in shoes. My mother took me to fine shoe stores, spent a great deal on getting me "properly" fit, to no avail. Rarely was I ever comfortable!
I have been wearing your shoes a little more than a year now. I use your toe separators, and I even wear your adorable, amazing socks. They are all a "God send."
Thank you very, very much, once again. I wish you much continued success. I refer a lot of people to your website. They get enormously excited!
