Re: boat shoes - women's wide, lace up??

I know we did a segment on our website not too long ago about women's boat shoes and the feedback we've been getting is awesome. I have also heard a lot of good things about the Sebago Balas wide, and Sperry of course is a go-to for most women sailors.

You might want to take a look at the
Adiddas Boat Lace
Vibram Five Fingers

I've especially heard good things about the orthodics in the Slam Code One shoes.

I know it's well past Memorial Day now, so you've probably got it figured out, but just in case here is the post How To Find The Best Women's Boat Shoes

throughout my sailing life--since i was 7 yrs of age, i have been seeking adequate sailing shoes-- there are NONE. top sLiders do just that--slide out from under your body when ye NEED the traction. so do all others i have met and tried. omega reef warriors were best things i ever found and they are n0 longer made. oh well.
bare feets for me--best deck shoes the gods ever made.

Ask you podiatrist about slim line orthotics. I am told they were developed to fit into ballet slippers.

absolutely most comfortable boat shoes ever! I've been wearing them all summer & love them. Zhink ZKG's - lightweight neoprene shoe, slip on, with laces to tighten fit. looks like a sneaker but definitely a boat shoe with a great non-stick sole.
And they come in pink too
