Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I was in the ship's store waiting for the sales guy to show us some boats when I spotted a pair of sandal boat shoes made by Seabago. They only had one pair and they didn't fit.

I looked for pics online but couldn't find any nor did I find the shoe. They were molded thong sandals with an adjustable heel strap and deck-type sole.

I was wondering if anyone has them or similar and if they are as good as regular boat shoes. We looked at four boats Sunday and I wore sandals (no heel strap) and they were dangerous! So I'm wondering if the molding, heel strap and deck-type sole would make them acceptable for getting around while sailing. And if so, where to find them?

Thanks,
Julie
