Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I wear casual Tevas as deck shoes since the Sperry's and Sebagos are too narrow for my feet. I picked these up a few years ago and I've been really happy with them: Teva Westwater When it's cold but not too wet I add a pair of hiking socks. They don't make that model anymore but the support and construction have been great. I think they were advertised as "casual" shoes when they were selling them.

Seems like the Newport H2 got high marks for traction.

I have Keens. Excellent. Picked them up in Winners for $50, even better.

Crocs

I am impressed by how good the grip is, how comfortable they are, and good toe protection.

Crocs has a warehouse sale on all summer at the International Centre beside Toronto's pearson airport(Airport and Derry Rds). They get the returns from online stores so stock is limited. I have a standing order for a pair like yours. $35.

They also have 1000's of the regular plastic crocs if you are so inclined.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

After too many snubbed toes no bare foot piggies when under way. Routine is two pairs of Keen's. Old ones for land. New ones on the boat. Bare foot when not underway or below. Have micro fiber rug ( wife found it at Bed Bath). Type used when getting out of the shower. Place it in front of companionway. Brush feet or Keens every time going below. Boat clean/dry inside. The stick of the Keens is nearly as good as my Dubarry seaboots. Trick is to take some sand paper and rough them up a bit from time to time. Have 5y on the old ones and 2y on the new. Have different color threading to keep them straight.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I was at my local hippie shoe store. They sell a great variety of "outdoors" shoes and I have found Keens on sale for half price twice now. I don't know if I would try ordering Keens online as they seem to very fit wise quite a bit between models. I have three pairs and all three are different sizes.

I did notice a new (to me at least) keen boat shoe that looks almost like a traditional boat shoe with the keen toe and I will pick a pair of those up this season.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

Barefoot is best for sailing. But for sailing on the boat and off the boat I love my sperry son r sandals. Great grip. No staining the deck.
