World Wide Sportsman® Riverside II Shoes for Men - Blue/Grey
Ok for a few outings...
Over the past two years, I've worn these less than 30 days - fishing from a boat and getting wet at the boat ramp. I wash the insoles and clean them up after fishing trips. The only quick-drying aspect of these shoes is thin mesh which isn't that great. I tried this style because the tops of my feet would sunburn with sandals. After my last trip, they stunk so bad I threw them out. I didn't even want to try to wash them. Very little comfort. Flip flops and sunscreen would be just as comfortable...but I don't do flip flops. I got these on sale for $25 and they are NOT worth much more than that.

I anxiously awaited the arrival of these shoes that I planned to designate as 'fishing only'. What a disappointment. I only wore them a few hours one morning and could not believe how uncomfortable they were. I expected the usually 'cushion type comfort' a tennis type shoe provides, but these things felt like they were made out of cardboard.
Bass Pro Shops graciously approved a full refund and return label when I advised the rep of the situation. A truly class retailer.

A must have for creeks
I went to my local store when this were on sell. They didn't have my size, so I had to order them over the phone. They honored the sell price for me. I will never wear tennis shoes or those stupid flimsy aqua shoes again. These things are comfortable, easy to swim in, lite weight even when wet, and dry way quicker than anything eles. They also look pretty cool and don't make your feet hot when not in the water. Great buy.

This is the second pair of shoes in this style that I have purchased. The quality of the Riverside has decreased significantly. They are not as comfortable as the previous pair, and the quality of materials appears to be rather inexpensive.
This will be my last pair of Riverside shoes that I purchase and will look at other options in the future for my summer fishing shoes.
