Brand loyalty does not exist. If someone else came up with a product that was just as good, or better, for less money then everyone would buy that one. People have brands they like, for now, until something better comes along.

I did your survey. Good luck.


who is staring at the sea is already sailing a little

BRRRRR!!! Must be quite a change of scenery for you---I think you'll find both areas are sailing meccas (you must live inland near S.D. not to have noticed)--curious as to project goals-- is it a marketing class, cobblery or something else?-- finished survey regardless--hope you get an 'A'---

Usually Sperry, but wallet loyalty comes into it, because I only buy them on sale. On the other hand, I take size 13...I buy whatever I see that fits...

OK, I hate surveys like that. I didn't exactly fit a number of the posible answers. One of the early questions asks if you wear boat shoes, then one of the last questions asks why don't you wear boat shoes????? Sounds a lot like market research for a specific company.

I used to wear docksiders but now I buy these el cheapo canvas slip ons. Made in China, bright colours, combine with a really loud shirt. Bad taste is it's own reward. First pair I was worried about the non skid qualities but they actually work really well. Thinking they would disintegrate pretty quickly I bought four pairs just before Christmas and have only ever worn one of them . Still going strong. Very light weight, dry out almost instantly. I'm seriously impressed but can't say the lads at the club are. Four pairs cost less than half a pair of Sperrys, if I get a season out of one pair I'm laughing.

Really do prefer bare feet but have had similar experience to TB so toe protection is the go.

Have to say that I seriously loath flip flops, as you lot call them. Blech. Only use I have for them is to wear to the marina showers. I'd have thought they would be bloody dangerous on a boat.

When its cold enough to wear socks I revert to canvas gym boots. Again, I'm amazed by the non skid qualities. Keep your feet warm unless it's very wet on deck and not too heavy.

I'm a barefooter and Crocs guy myself. I also wear flip-flops when at the dock, but find that they don't stay on well enough to move around the deck when underway.
