Awesome comfort with a boat shoe non skid sole, scuffs ez - by , Sep 11, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
I got these from a end of year sale for about 1/3 of regular cost so they were an amazing value for me. I work shipboard and have worn these for the last 3 weeks non stop. They are all day comfortable. The do scuff easily and leaked a bit but I have been rubbing them with leather conditioner paste and after many applications they seem to scuff less easily and are now worthy of water resistant. They are not work boots but I work in mine on deck and in an engine room. Pretty good protection and compared to the usual bs boat shoe they have real support. I started slathering them with brown Kiwi polish and now cover scuffs and they are not scuffing as bad. Also slathered them with Nikwax as well, actually first. My wife says they look good. Hate to think how much of the rain forest was given up to grow cows for the leather (take away one star). For me the best boot is one that is Goretex lined. OK I'll take one star back as they are good around the city motorcycle boots. I just stuck a little black gorilla tape to protect from the shift. GREAT traction when riding in the wet.

Not Great as a Work Boot - by , Aug 19, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
Received these boots as a Christmas gift to be used as work boots. I work as an Archaeologist so I need good boots. Fits great once broken in. Comfortable even after 10hrs in rough terrain. The leather is hardy. Love the rawhide laces the don't get frayed or snagged by all the thorny plants. They have held up surprisingly well against the shovel spade. This wears many of my boot soles out. But not these even though they seem like a softer rubber then most boots I have worn. I have serious issues with the stitching. The triangular section of the back of the shoe has completely come undone in 3 months of use. Other stitching has started to go as well now. They work well against wet grass, morning dew and such. They can get soaked from that all day and my feet hardly ever get wet. If it rains though, or I step in a puddle that goes above the first fold of stitching my foot gets soaked. I love Sperrys in general and worn the brand for years but here they have let me down. I really wish the stitching and waterproofing were better. If they were I'd probably buy these again.

Arrived with scuff marks - by , Jul 06, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
I loved the style and comfort of this boot, but it arrived with scuff marks, and I was concerned that the glue where the leather met the sole was weak. For the price I paid, I expected to not have those issues. I've purchased many pairs of shoes from Sperry and always been satisfied. This was definitely not a typical transaction.

Treat yourself to comfort with casual style - by , Feb 03, 2019

The main reason for the purchase of my Sperry Watertown boots is because I find them stylish enough to wear them untied with my pantlegs tucked into the top of them. After breaking in I found them so unusually comfortable that as much as it killed me to get them muddy, I did and it was the second greatest reason for the purchase of this product. Being that I'm a flatfooted person it has been a 38 year struggle to find something other than flip flops that feel comfortable enough to wear all day until..... the day that I wore my Watertowns for the first time. Every day that I go to work they are on my feet! I have put them through the test. The boots withstand water as good as it gets when it comes to boots comparable in style. But again I have never had footwear this comfortable!!! I could literally stand in one spot without moving my feet for hours!! They clean up great and again I have enjoyed owning a pair of these boots so much that I have just ordered me a new pair just to keep clean and going out styling around town.

Cozy and stylin' - by , Jan 18, 2019

I was hesitant since other Sperry boots had been reviewed as too small to size, but I stuck with the common review that this model was true. It's true! At first, they felt a little narrow around the heal and ball, but a few days working them in loosened the leather and now they're just just and snug. My other concern was water resistance. I don't expect they'll be completely waterproof at a given point, so you won't catch me mucking through wetlands or tide pools in these obvious city boots. So far, so good while hoofing around the streets in light-medium rains here in Portland, OR.

Overall it’s a great boot - by , Jan 12, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
This really is a great boot. It’s very comfortable and keeps my dry. The only issue I have with it is that is scuffs really easily and the scuffs don’t come off. Within like the first week I wore them, the front got scuffed from someone stepping on my foot by accident and since the scuff remains. Maybe make them less susceptible to being scuffed easily. Thanks!

These boots are very well crafted and some of the most comfortable I have ever had. Takes a little time to break in, but they mold perfectly to your feet like the best Sperry leather made shoes and boots always due. Durable, good looking, and a joy to wear. Highly recommend.

This boot started out stiff like a ski boot but after a few days the leather is softening nicely. Very sturdy, comfortable and beautiful. They do run a little bit large but this allows for thick warm socks. I'm very happy with this purchase.
