Re: Best Footwear for summertime racing?

One more vote for Keens here! They are the perfect compromise between the protection of a full shoe and the comfort and coolness of a sandal. They draint and dry quickly if your feet take a dunking while on the rail, and they have the best grip of any shoe i have owned.

As for the Harken shoe stink, it is the sea water that does it. I have found that if I rinse them with fresh water after racing they are fine. (Or should I say "were" as I haven't bought a pair since I discovered Keens!)
