Product Review: Aetrex Justin Boat Shoe

SmarterTravel

What Is it: The Justin Boat Shoe from Aetrex.

Price and Where to Buy: $119.95 on Amazon. The shoes will also be available on Aetrex’s website in September.

Pros:

  • 100 percent leather exterior upper
  • Orthotic soles support your feet on long walks
  • Memory foam interior maximizes comfort
  • Microbial antibacterial lining prevents odor
  • Water resistant materials keep you dry
  • Exterior sole is made from a slip-resistant material, and features a tread pattern that channels liquid away from the sole
  • Very lightweight and comfortable

Cons:

  • The sole doesn’t match the rest of the shoe—these would look much better if they were a uniform color.

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 8/10. Comfortable, supportive shoes for men are tough to find. The Aetrex boat shoes tick both boxes.
  • Value: 7/10. The price point is average for a well-made leather shoe.
  • Durability: 10/10. The interior lining and exterior sole on these shoes are extremely tough—you can count on these shoes to last you through many, many miles.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. Boat shoes are very in right now, and these shoes are definitely cooler than wandering around a city in white sneakers while traveling (as so many tourists do.) The shoes are also dressy enough for business/fancier environments, but would pair just as well with casual shorts.

Final Verdict: The Aetrex Justin boat shoes can take you from a sailboat, to a business casual meeting, to a nice dinner. These could be the only shoes you need to pack for an entire trip—and you’d be comfortable the whole time.
