7 Reasons Riomars Are The Best Boat Shoes

7 Reasons Riomars Are The Best Boat Shoes

Boat shoes have been around for decades. They were once exclusively worn by the ultra-wealthy, but today boat shoes are more popular than ever. From the beach to the boat to the boardroom, boat shoes have become the go-to shoe for many people around the world; whether landlocked or coastal. If you’re looking for a new pair of boat shoes, we've got seven reasons why Riomars are some of the best in existence.

  1. They are pure footwear heaven, offering 10/10 comfort.
  2. Whether you’re a shoe connoisseur, or you’ve spent a day boating in pair of rundown deck shoes, you know that the quality of your footwear makes all the difference. You also know that what looks good, isn’t always comfortable. However, unrivalled comfort is one of the things that sets Riomar apart from the rest. It has everything to do with the materials used in their construction: leather-lined with foam footbeds and cushioned collars for extra support. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself reaching for them every morning.

  3. You can customize them to reflect your ever changing style, day after day.
  4. Change your bearings, not your soles with Riomar’s stainless steel bearings. It's your shoe, so get creative! With our patented customizable bearings you can match the color and style of your shoes to any vibe in your life. We've designed them with nautical aesthetics in mind, but these versatile shoe parts offer limitless possibilities for customization—even offering licensed bearings for a growing list of college fraternities and sororities.

  5. They're odor-proof and antimicrobial (which is, dare we say, a rarity on the water!)
  6. Riomar insoles are made with EVA foam— a lightweight, durable, and shock absorbent material ideal for use in deck shoes. Additionally, the foam is antimicrobial, preventing the growth of bacteria and fungi, allowing you to take them all through your busy calendar, from day to night.

  7. Their non-skid soles keep both you, and your boat’s floor, safe from damage.
  8. Designed with 100% waterproof leather and non-skid, non-marking soles, our top-siders will allow you to confidently traverse every nook of your craft while sailing — from the most precarious positions to the most precious planks, both you and your boat will remain unharmed.

  9. Versatile, yet timeless style means they can be worn anywhere, and with anything.
  10. Top-siders are great for people who want a classic shoe that is comfortable and versatile. It's a staple of the footwear industry and has become one of the most popular shoes in the world. Riomars can be worn with just about anything, from business casual to jeans, shorts or khakis. You can wear them with or without socks, depending on what you're doing and how hot it is outside (if it's too hot for bare feet), and you can trust you'll look put together no matter where you go!

  11. More than just high style; they are high performance.
  12. We know you don’t want to choose function over fashion, and nor should you! When it comes to coastal life, we know you need to be ready for anything, which is why we craft Riomars from the finest materials, and design them to look well-suited for the boat or the yacht club. Like you, they’re classic, but never boring; supportive, high quality, and supremely distinguishable from the rest.

  13. We’re proudly American-owned.

And as such, Riomar is proud to offer 20% discounts to members of the armed forces. We believe in supporting those who have served or are currently serving our country, and we are honored to be able to show our appreciation through our Military Discount Program. We are also proud to partner with the Veterans Golfer Association, a nonprofit organization that provides free golf memberships to veterans, active duty military personnel, and their families.

We may have shortlisted these seven, but there are countless reasons why Riomar makes the best boat shoes on the market. They are comfortable, versatile, made with high-quality materials, distinctive, and classy. If you're not convinced, we invite you to shop now and see for yourself what countless of our customers already know.
