Chacos Marine

I leave mine on the boat, they grip tight and if you swim in the water they are like flippers (ok a little!). TEVA used to make them but no more. They'll last forever leaving them on the boat, old Topsiders till I get on board.

Re: New Shoe Review

I've been trying to get these Sperry Top-Sider Men's Sea Kite Sneaker

but TS doesn't ship online sales to Canada and doesn't have retailer in Niagara Falls area that carries them. But the treads look reliable.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: New Shoe Review

By the way, you can still get Sperry's that are handmade in the USA. Maine to be exact.

They are the original classic style. For $300 !!

I think I was polite enough when I asked her to remove them before stepping into the dink. She's still with him anyway.
