It will probably be offensive (I talk too much
) to those who have replied crocs but other than maybe for a passage
FAR from other people I cannot fathom how anyone could bring themselves to be seen in a plastic shoe that looks like something a mother would think her toddler would look cute in.
Maybe if there were not better sailing shoes, but there are some very nice shoes out there as people have mentioned. Keens are a good selling brand of wet/dry shoe. Saloman also makes some VERY nice shoes.
The flap in the back folds down flat so you can just step on it and slam your feet in, tada a slip on.(This is why I prefer them over the Keens) Or for security
in rougher weather
, put them on all the way and just yank on those little staps on the back. The inside is treated with some silver ion stuff to help prevent odor
. The soles are non marking and they dry very fast.
For those not into the looks of the newer style of shoe (and lets face it if you are wearing crocs this is not an area of concern to you) there are many classic boat shoes out there that do a better job and don't make it look like you've been hit with the boom one too many times.
Sperry makes some very nice shoes as mentioned in above posts:
For a slip on.
I may mostly just daysail right now so maybe my mindset isn't 'there' yet, but this may be one of those things I just never 'get'
