Love these shoes

by Capt Mike — August 30, 2017 7:52:19 PM PDT
Sometimes I forget I have these shoes on my feet. Great cushioning quality and breathability. You wont want to wear these in cold wet weather, but ideal for summer. Great for washing down the decks , who cares if they get wet !!

Max comfort

These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I wear them literally every day because they make my feet feel great. They're rugged...clean easily...dry quickly. They're super light. Whoever designed these is really gifted. I'm ordering a second pair.

Looks great, soft and cushiony, these shoes are keepers!

I am 65 years old with very narrow feet. The Fin 2.0 is a very comfortable fit that allows my foot to relax and my heel to not slip. My feet don't have much meat on them and the soft platform supports them while preventing fatigue when in constant use. The most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

outstanding

I am a full time sax player,72 years old and still playing R&R gigs...After 4 hours on my feet holding the tenor sax,my feet are killing me...I have 3 pairs of Soft Science and my feet feel great after a gig...I jusat hope they come out with a warm winter shoe cause I'm on the east coast!

Awesome shoe!

by Texasarkie — June 15, 2017 3:46:13 PM PDT
I bought a pair of these on the first day of the Skeeter owners tournament at Lake Fork. I wore them for the next 4 days approximately 16 hours a day with about half standing on a boat deck fishing and almost half walking, standing around, etc. My feet and more importantly my back has felt better than it has in several months! I love these shoes and will buy more!

Amazing relief

by Hurricane Bay Charters — June 7, 2017 8:43:16 AM PDT
I have now owned my pair of Fins for 3 months now and the amount if comfort has been amazing... I've suffered back pain for years and have endured 3 knee reconstructions and standing on a boat deck all day can be excrutiating at times. These shoes have changed my world and my ability to keep smiling with clients all day whike fishing. .. I've been a croc wearer for years due to the cushion and comfort they have always provided and I never thought there would be a company that would develop a shoe/flip flop that would compete with them, but wow was a wrong... the support and cushion with the fins has been far and above what my crocs have provided, it's almost like I'm standing in a kids bounce house all day. Thank you for an amazing product, i will be lifelong customer. Can't wait to fill the closet with your flip flops.

Positive Review

In late March, 2017 I received my Fin 2’s well in time for the King of the Beach Tournament, a very large King Fish Tournament outside of St. Petersburg FL. The same group of men have been fishing both the Spring and Fall Tournaments for several years. I wore my Fin 2’s several times to see how much breaking in would be required. None was. The Fin 2’s worked wonderfully on our boat throughout the tournament with no slipping and ample cushioning for the rough waters.

On 11 May I had a single disc spinal fusion of L4/L5. I was told to bring a comfortable pair of non-skid shoes that fit firmly on the foot but not difficult to put on. I choose my Fin 2. I was up walking in my Fin 2’s the day after surgery and every day since. I wore conventional walking shoes once but immediately went back to my Fin 2 for my next long walk.

Today, 2.5 weeks after surgery I am waking over two miles twice a day, that’s over 4.4k steps twice a day. I do not feel any of the compression on the spine that I feel in regular walking shoes both prior to surgery or after.

I would recommend Fin 2s not just for boating and fishing but also for those with have spinal or issues who need a soft walking shoe with a non-skid sole that reduces compression of the spine and knees and provides confidents for non-skidding.

Super comfortable.

I like many have been waiting for a new batch to come in. I ordered and they cae very quickly. I was very excited to receive these shoes today however, I will recommend if you are a size 12, order the 13's. The 12's are a bit cramped. The soles are very comfortable though..

Great boat shoe

by Robski — May 22, 2017 2:08:06 PM PDT
First time user. Always looking for a better boat shoe. These shoes rock. Only had them a week but right out the box I was impressed with how light they were. Very comfortable , good grip on deck wet or dry. Highly recommend . Now I can put my merrels to bed.

I'm working on Cape Cod as a Boat Captain and I ordered these shoes last month. I cannot believe how great they feel. They drain quickly and are dry almost as quickly. There's a lot of boat shoes on the market, I rate these on the top of the list!!

Good shoes

by Capt. Stan Luther — April 18, 2017 2:26:37 PM PDT
Much improved on the new 2.0 styling and look. I have three pairs of the FIN original and these new ones are too nice to get bloody. I wear them on my boat (great non-slip bottoms.) but swap to my old pairs to fish. Great styling and colors. I have the blue and the blue digi camo and get a lot of questions about them. Very comfortable and enjoyable shoes to wear, both on the water all day and ashore.

My favorite pair so far!

by M Fuller — March 15, 2017 7:02:40 PM PDT
This is the 4th pair of Soft Science shoes and this is by far my favorite pair. They look awesome...Better in person than the do on the website and the are so so comfortable.

Sizing & Fit Guide

SoftScience™ shoes are designed and engineered to provide a roomy and generous fit.

Our shoes come in whole sizes only, so if you normally wear a 9.5, choose your SoftScience™ shoe in a size 10. This generous fit feels secure, but not snug, and allows for breathability, ventilation and healthy foot circulation to keep you comfortable.

Wide fit

For an ideal fit, have a gap of at least half a pinky finger on either side of your heel and above your instep.

Generous length

With wiggle room in the front of the shoe, your toes shouldn’t touch.

Comfortable heel

Your heel shouldn’t rest against the back of the shoe and may ride up and down slightly.

The Trileon™ Insole
Trillion&trade

At the core of the SoftScience™ shoes’ construction and personality is a proprietary material called Trileon™ — a closed cell copolymer developed by Scott Seamans exclusively for SoftScience™. The unique properties of Trileon™ — cushioned, stable and lightweight — allow us to produce a shoe weighing just six to ten ounces that is comfortable with high-impact resistance and support. Trileon™ is used in the shoes’ durable outsole and in the removable, washable insole. The outsole and insole combine to produce the unique comfort experience, which is the “WOW” factor in all SoftScience™ shoes.

The Trileon™ insole provides superior comfort and stability, but you can also remove and replace it with your own custom orthotic.
