Would Ya? Could Ya?

As a public service to world-wide readers and others who boat in out-of-the-way places, I post this foto of the very latest in yachting footware. At least I hadn't seen them before. These are Sperrys at We$t Marine.

Re: Would Ya? Could Ya?

Are those the only colors? yuk! They look so male and well male!

When are they going to make boat shoes with some fashion, color, bling?

I have found for steep ramps, that heels make it easier to walk up and walk down if you walk back wards. Looks like you are moon walking!

Actually it looks like the before picture of taking a dunking. The guys are looking just to see who wins the bet.

FYI: I've always carried the gal in high heels. It is a funny thing to see one get stuck in the dock or slip and slide down the gangway although it is generally a good idea to hide your mirth until out of her presence.

To answer the OP, no I would not. My wide feet naturally have suction cups on the sole. And they last a whole lot longer than some piece of overpriced claptrap like Sperrys.

Re: Would Ya? Could Ya?

To my amazement, while strolling through WM in San Diego, saw 2 ft. tall leather boots with 3" black heels in the footwear section. Unbelievable.
