Sperry sandals

well, after sending in what i thought to be defective sandals to Sperry i must say there customer service was excellent. they communicated quickly and efficiently, and replaced my flops w/o a question--even having space on the form for me to select three models i would like if my old pair were no longer available. i got these in the mail yesterday--

Sperry Top-Sider Men's Charter Fisherman

first go-round with a closed toe job, but after i broke my pinky toe (ouch) i thought i would try them out.

anyway, i was very pleased with how they handled the situation.

I really like Sperry flip-flops because you can completely submerge them in water yet they maintain a dry feel. They do not get mushy or rotten feeling like other types of flip-flops. Sperry's biggest problem seems to lie in the sole delaminating from the front going back.

That happened with mine too. I bought mine from West Marine and took them back there for return. Thanks to their great return policy I get a new pair of a different brand that same day.

I just got done gorilla glueing my soles back on. I guess I will find out if holds or not. Mine are old enough that I wouldnt expect them to still be under warranty.

Those are going to leave some interesting tan lines.

egad! i didnt even consider that.. im going to have some sort of funky zebra foot or something! maybe they make another pair that has uppers where the holes are and holes where the uppers are? that way i could alternate shoes and keep it even--like the farmers tanning booth

Well, you *could* just wear some black socks! I still have lines from the sandals I was wearing back in May when sailing to Colombia from Florida.

TAN lines ??? Who cares, Mick? Protect your foot the best you can. I've been using Keen's for the last couple of seasons, on both the Hobie and keel boats. GREAT toe protection. Grips as well as any Sperry I've used. They have a waterproof line that works great. They don't stretch out when wet

I have seen these ridiculous shoes on people at my campus and I stand by my opinion that the wearers are misguided naturist in the precipice of being fruit cakes. However, for our purposes the shoes could really be something.
They are those water shoes with the toes in them, its hard to explain but they are built like regular water shoes, but they have individual toes in them and each toe as grip on the bottom. Anyway, i'd be curious to know if anyone uses these shoes and how they like them.
