I LOVE these boat shoes! Most women's boat shoes are either stiff leather or have cute cotton uppers: the leather ones get even harder and more painful after drying with salt/fresh water, then tighten up and cause blisters - the cotton ones literally shrink after drying in sun and become tight and stretched painfully across the top of your feet. I have a relatively flat foot for a woman and therefore prefer a slightly wider shoe, although not to the point where I typically buy wide sizes. I bought these Men's 7's for my size 9 woman's feet, and I LOVE them!!! Just got back from 10 days sailing in the Virgin Islands... they are exceptionally comfortable, with the soft Crocslite sole topped with BUTTER-soft leather. and they have great drainage holes on the sides. Felt super light, not hot at all (which was another problem with my leather Topsiders) and just felt great from minute one. No break-in time! They were just that extra bit of wide that allowed them to slip on, but they were terrific and steady on the boat and protected my feet from the occasional whack against a cleat or two. I hope you keep making them, they are the best boat shoes ever!
