Default Boating shoes

In this time of chaos in our country let's talk about a lighter subject like random boating attire like shoes...I along with probably most people on here do not allow shoes on my boat for obvious reasons...I do however feel very awkward driving at speed barefoot...what are some options out there for boat shoes that could stay on the boat and hence stay clean and still give some comfort and rigidity while standing at the helm going 80+?? Just curious if there's an obvious alternative to flip flops or "slides" as the cool kids call them apparently hahaha

Usually tried and true Sperrys & Timberlands. Warparty's links look kinda cool too...might have to look into those.

Bare feet only on my boat and I always advise my non-boating friends to always remove shoes if invited aboard a nice boat, don't even ask. Of course if boat is full of fish guts and fishing tackle ........

I never had a problem with people wearing the correct type of shoes on my boats, it's a boat...big deal. I always wore my Sperrys anyway, better traction, no stubbing of toes. Besides not a big fan of other people's foot funk, toe jam, or spooge foot on my boat.
