Re: Footwear

I'm with Acedude. On my second pair of Five Fingers. Took a day to get used to them and haven't gone back. They came out recently with a pair in soft, dark brown rough-out leather, very cool! Also have a pair of simple canvas slip ons that I like to wear.

Re: Footwear

I'm right! Al Bundy did invent the toe shoe things! Actually God showed him the shoes first.

Re: Footwear

I also have to say that my wife and I have been converted to wearing Crocs on the boat . Yes, they are damn ugly IMO, but, they protect the toes, have good grip on deck, have thick bottoms (Which are perfect for swimming a stern line to a rocky shore, and protecting you from sea urchins to a certain extent), dry quickly after being wet, and they can be slipped on in a second if a situation arises (Unlike wetsuits boots or shoes).
I started looking for quick-donning boat shoes after the last toe-killing event where I had to leap up from my sun-downer and fend off a boat which was coming into dock (Poorly), where I had no time to put my wetsuit boots on, and during this debacle my foot slipped down the cabin roof across the deck and into the railing, which resulted in a toenail being folded back in half. Ouch!
I've sent in my application to the Real World. So I'm hoping to hear back from that....

BEWARE OF CROCS when the soles wear a little they become very slippery when wet. I have had some bad falls with them and no longer wear them for this reason.
