SanderO is an unknown quantity at this point
I like the Sebago Spinnakers especially the colorful ones. But they are hard to get these days.

I prefer going bare foot for comfort and grip usually.. but if you don't know your boat you can stub your toe ...OUCH.

That should read, "You WILL stub your toes."
If you go barefoot, its only a matter of time before something gets hurt.

I guess this 6 year old thread is officially reopened.LOL

I just can't get past the club-footed shape of them. Reminds me of that "Earth Shoe" fad a couple decades ago.

My wife loves her Crocks too, but I would feel like a fruitloop wearing something like that.

Consider going barefoot, it's fun.
Not true, they make gloves, and sailing shoes even for babies as small is my Luis!!

Check his sailing shoes with anti skid, and anti mark soles. We can get him anything we want for sailing, and most I buy in the US!!!! look better..

THOSE ARE VERY VERY UN-ELEGANT AND UGGLY SHOES

Hope you use them at night in roads with bad ilumination.

If my wife wore those, I'd divorce her....

They're extremely popular in the US Giu - at least in coastal towns. You probably don't see many where you're at in Colorado. BTW, they're called Crocs, not Crocks - and styled after Scandinavian clogs.
