Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

Got my Keen H2 Newport sandals a few days ago and loving them so far. They really are superbly comfortable and grip great!

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I replaced my Birkinstocks recently and discovered that while my old beat-up pair gripped the deck okay, I slid around the deck in my replacements. I kicked them off, but agree that it's dangerous to be running around the boat in bare feet.

I have a pair of Sperry's boat shoes but hate the way they fit - no arch support, and I don't like the vulnerability of having laces that can come undone. Has anyone tried the sporty sneaker-type boat shoes by either HH or Sperry? I'm thinking of trying those next.

Another vote for the Keen Newport H2's. I used to use Teva's, but found that when wet, the straps stretched out on me...useless on the Hobie. Maybe I didn't have the right model. Regardless, I needed better toe protection...so the Keen's were perfect. Same fit, wet or dry. They have a siped sole for grip on a wet deck. As I recall, the "H2" means it is for wet use. You get a funky foot tan, but your toes will be intact.

I like the Chaco's, too. I have a pair without the toe strap -- bought them when I lived in Seattle (where socks with sandals won't get you ejected from polite gatherings). They grip the deck very nicely and are also good for walking on the beach, over rocks and into town. Since my last encounter with an unidentified submersed object resulted in several stitches, I also wear them swimming.

They seem to be popular with kayakers and rafters. Just wondering how well they stick.
I have several pairs of Keens -- I have the hiking type of boot/shoe which don't stick. But my Keen Venice H2 and Newport H2 (3 and 4 years old) sandals stick very well. I also have a pair of Keen ankle boots that I've had for years, and they're fabulous for cold weather boating. They're warm and stick well. I don't know what I'll do when they wear out, because I haven't seen the same style for sale recently.

Ah, that explains why I could wear a keens size 3. I had wondered about that bit. But yes, the kids prices are much more reasonable, even without my son's discount.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I switched from Teva to Keen. I love the toe protection and comfort. Newport H2 are great for sailing, kayaking and walking around town.

I live in my chacos whenever there's no snow on the ground, and sometimes when there is. I never thought of having them resoled. Thanks, my current pair is worn down and getting slick. On board I prefer to be barefoot most of the time.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

Keens, definitely. I used to be a Teva gal but when my sis visited last year, she mentioned that Keens might be a better option. I really like the closed toes. Luckily for me, I wear kid's size shoes, and my son has a huge discount at a local sporting goods store, so I was able to snag a pair for $25 (incl tax). I've run around my deck in a total downpour, and the keens have done me well.
