Boat shoes--shoes with rubber soles designed to not pick up sand/dirt/rocks-- used to be available in the form of construction of athletic shoes. They were also comfortable for walking.
Now what I find is either a high tech, fast draining sailing shoe or the old topsider available in more colors than a rainbow, plus patterns (or your favorite baseball team logo). Neither of which would be as comfortable walking, at least I don't think. I'd like support, and have them laced up snuggly.
We like to walk when we cruise. It would be nice to be wearing shoes that, when we arrived back at the dinghy, didn't bring along a scoop of dirt. Plus, they would be comfortable on the boat.
I've looked online and haven't found exactly what I'm looking for, for both me and my wife. Does anyone know of such a shoe being sold?
