Awesome Hangout Shoe

Just got my shoes in. I have flat feet and fallen arches and believe me, these are awesome for just hanging out. I endorse these with no reservations.

Best boat shoe I've ever owned

by Travis Thompson — May 2, 2017 5:49:55 AM PDT
Let me preface this review by saying I'm a full time fishing guide - 200 plus days every year I spend on the hard, wet, deck of my boat. I'm 6'4", 250 lbs, so my feet take a pounding.

The SoftScience shoes have been a lifesaver. I have tried ALL the brands - Simms, Crocs, Columbia, Olukai - nothing can touch SoftScience for all around performance.

First up is comfort. The insole and sole are so cushioned, it's like walking on a soft pad all day. These are the ONLY shoes I've ever worn that alleviated lower back pain - and trust me, 15-16 hours on the boat can create lower back pain. That alone is reason enough to buy them.

But, they also perform well - wet deck, dry deck, dirt, sand - the SoftScience provide perfect traction, no matter the terrain. I have had other shoes cause slips and falls on my boat - after putting these shoes through their paces, I can assure you this isn't a worry any longer.

Finally - style - they work hard all day, but they also look really good too. I get a TON of compliments on the shoes.

I've been using them for about 6 weeks, every day, 7 days a week, for 12-16 hours a day - in other words, a workload that makes most shoes beg for mercy. These look exactly like they did when I got them.

Buy them. You will not be disappointed.

Very happy with purchase & cost

I got 2 styles which are both very comfortable & at the end of the day neither heel hurts for the first time in over a year!

Life saver

by VOBrien — April 2, 2016 2:02:04 PM PDT
I have large and wide feet. I never find a slip on that will accommodate my high arch and wide toes. This shoe absolutely does that. I also have plantar fascitis and metatarsal syndrome and find wearing shoes for any length of time very painful. I usually walk around barefoot at home . I can't wait to take off my shoes after wearing them for any length of time. Since I have these shoes I can wear them all day long and into the night. They are THE MOST COMFORTABLE shoes I have ever owned. I love that I can wash the insole quickly and dry them with a towel and put them right on. I have a weight issue so we shall see how they hold up. But I am ordering more.

Vacation

Back for more

by Kasi — February 17, 2016 7:17:39 AM PST
I purchased the striped canvas shoe at the Houston Boat Show, and wasn't sure how much I'd wear it. I am happy to say that they are my "casual Friday go-to shoe!" They go with any color top and look great with jeans. I am back for the black canvas shoe and some flip flops!

cooking shoes

by Chef Paula — November 20, 2015 8:43:35 PM PST
I had to write a review to thank you for making a great chef's shoe. Perfect for the kitchen to relieve the heel knee & back pain associated with long hours on a hard floor. These feel so good, I'm really looking forward to cooking for the holidays wearing them. I have the red and orange Drift style. I've been wearing them with a sock for extra comfort. I wear them into the garden to cut herbs and out and about. Any plans for a sneaker?Would buy several pairs of a cute lace up sneaker! Love the bold brights too. With my thanks. Happy cooking, these feel good, chefs!

Most comfortable shoe ever...

by Dana — October 7, 2015 11:20:00 AM PDT
I’m just back from Asia....long flight. Every time I travel and especially on long haul international flights I am reminded how much I love my Soft Sci shoes. Nothing better to slip on/off as a Drift in clog form for bathroom visits or short aisle walks to stretch out/get blood circulating, supreme comfort fit allows room for any foot swelling during flight & when you land it’s so easy to slip on & go. If you’re doing any amount of walking/touring once at a destination the value of this shoe is only amplified! For $59 this is a no brainer and a must for any world traveler.

Perfect travel shoes

by Carl the Cruiser — July 29, 2015 10:24:56 AM PDT
Love these shoes. Great for travel. I can slip them off easily at the security check point. Theses shoes are so comfortable on my feet and work for many types of occasions. Converts easily from slip ons to regular shoe. most comfortable shoes I own. Thank you.

Good Science

by Nick — July 29, 2015 10:21:37 AM PDT
These are my go-to shoes for looking classy while also very comfortable....Wearing them at the beach with shorts or with slacks to a nice dinner. At first I thought "wow" these are so comfortable I'll just use as house slippers and not ever go outside with them. They're just too nice for indoor only, I had to get the most enjoyment and use possible. Good company and good science.

Relief from Foot Pain

by Michael P Hergenroether, DC — July 17, 2015 9:41:57 AM PDT
I am very happy and excited about SoftScience and the results I have seen since getting a pair of Drifts a couple weeks ago. I have noticed amazing relief of my chronic metatarsalgia since wearing them.

My problem has been gradually worsening for the last 15 years and stems from years of long distance running. I have 5 different pairs of orthotics that have helped to some degree, but not a day goes by where my metatarsalgia doesn’t flare up after a day of being on my feet all day seeing patients as a chiropractor. This is always worse after exercise and recently I have mostly given up long road runs for the bike, but that also aggravates.

I remember the first time I put on SoftScience shoes because it felt so incredibly comfortable, like nothing I had ever felt before. I wear them almost everyday now because my feet feel great all day long - even on days after a 3-mile trail run! I have not experienced any pain in my feet on any day I have worn them. A few days I had to wear my other shoes, and I felt the old pain again. I just need to get some other styles and colors now.

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.
