Shoes made for those who love the water
When you need casual shoes that slip on and off quickly, flip flops and open sandals are a great choice. It’s easy to shake sand or pebbles from them and they dry quickly. Choose sandals with an arch support or cushion for the most comfort and durable non-marking rubber soles that won’t mar a deck. Choices even include sandals with built-in bottle openers—because we know that whatever you are doing out there can be thirsty work.
Boat shoes provide sailors comfort and safety with quick-drying materials and nonslip soles that grip wet or dry decks. Features vary from all-synthetic, quick-drying models to shoes with high quality leather uppers with moisture-wicking mesh panels for easy drainage; and treatments that stand up to the gnarliest gunk the sea can dish out. When you want comfortable shoes that complement your style and can stand up to the demands of your time on the water, go for boat shoes.
For cold weather or activities that require serious foot protection from oils and chemicals, waterproof boots are what you need. Fitted with cushioned insoles, slip-resistant bottoms and made with flexible latex neoprene, these boots are made to last.
Competitive sailors need serious foot protection to nimbly move around the boat without injury. Sailing boots offer lightweight uppers with easy drainage and grippy bottoms that won’t slow you down.
Features to consider
If quick-drying shoes are a must for you, be sure to look for pairs with removable insoles so they can air dry in a hurry. Drainage holes in the soles also help speed up the drying process.
Traction is key. Your new shoes will need to function in wet and dry conditions. Many boat shoes have "siped" soles, designed to expel water from under the shoe, which improves traction and reduces the chance of slipping.
