By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.

You could also check out Rugged Shark's Aquaire shoes. I have the TIE (tie fighter anyone?) and love them so far. They have since expanded the Aquaire line to include some other models as well.

'Course, no shoe is going to save you from wrong-footing a slippery deck...

Goldingds, if you read to the bottom of the shoelace knots page of the posted link, you will see the fine print in which Ian, the site's mastermind promises to show a knot he calls the "boat shoe". Patience, bare feet for a while and you will have your answer!

sorry, had far to much laundry to do... sucked big.
I'm told by the Cuban that we WILL go tomorrow.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

When i get a new pair of topsiders, i just tie a normal shoe knot in them and then super glue the knot. Worked fine over the last 3 years.

I wear size 15 shoes... I've only been able to get Sebago Docksides for the past 20+ years in this size.. I'd love to find something closer to the Harken in my size. My wife suggests I chop a few toes off. My big toe alone would be size 1 By the way, the Sebago's can be tied day 1.

If you loop the ends through the laces on the exterior of the shoe between the eyelets, pull tight and bring them back up to the loops the shoe will be held onto your foot much tighter. It's a little trick I do when it's really wet out.

Labatt-

That's why I wear sneaker like Harkens instead... No weird tricks needed to keep them on the feet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
