The admiral proclaimed that either the shoes go overboard or me. They were not in the best of shape at the time.

Does anyone have a recommendation on the new modern style of boat shoe?
The only recommendation I can give is to use a heat moldable arch support insole. I use them in my topsiders, I purchased them at a bicycle shop in CT, the brand name is Bontrager, they go for $39.99 and I like them quite a bit.
