I personaly like the classic style boat shoe, they usually have very small siping treads on bottom,so rocks and grime dont get stuck in them, those sporty ones have bigger sipes so more of a chance of rocks, now most times i take shoes off when boarding other boats , but certian instances, i wear shoes, like in rain and cold temps, trying to step on a wet deck barefoot can lead to painfull bodily damage or gel/paint damage

Man... don't know if these sperrys will hold up to the witches brew. It's some serious chit. You may have to get some insurance waivers for your crew before they step foot on that deck. I couldn't keep the bottle from sliding off the bow
MC, u coming to DS..??

This is what I have if they are going to get wet.

DC's in white if I am going to be on the docks at night and may be on and off the boat.

As you can tell like white shoes in the summer and actually have had a lot of compliments on the white DC's from all ages. I also prefer slip on shoes.

Little expensive, but when you consider the amount of time you spend on the boat, it's quite worth it.

I have both the sneaker and the traditional leather style. They both have identical soles. The leather ones are more comfortable overall, and easier to slip on and off. But when you're standing up driving the boat, they both offer great anti-shock.
