Moral of story...if one has to take their shoes off in a public and easily accessed area, then carry the shoes.

Then if your shoe is stolen you only have to check out the one legged people at the boat show.

Of course I did. I didn't even like the salesman's shoes.

Not to thread drift but we have a rule on our boat . If it's left on the boat 24hrs it's ours . That goes for beer , wine , liquor , towels , shoes or whatever .It's funny I heard my daughters talking on the boat the other day and one said " don't forget that CD ,you know they got that 24 hr thing . "

I hate you got your shoes stolen. That really sucks . My dad always said you can judge a mans character by looking at his shoes first . I'm sure they were some nice ones . If you get another pair maybe try another color and maybe just maybe you'll find that you like the new ones even more .

Well, I have tons of tennis shoes, basketball shoes, walking shoes, and deck shoes....none of which I picked out myself. Prior to meeting my wife I wore boring shoes every day. That changed. If they make a shoe in a particular color, I'm sure I either have it or have had it. She likes shoes.

I left oars in a dinghy, came back to find them gone, 2 fence paling/pickets left in their place. Low act, seems we get a better class of thief here.

Wearing good deck shoes is indeed a safety benefit. I don't think anyone here is advocating not wearing them under normal circumstances. But the boat show thing with hundreds of people traipsing through boats that are in the water or on display in the exhibit hall is another matter.

I think the thread title accurately states my stance on the allegations made against me.

That doesn''t say much for poor Mason while he had to walk the docks with a pair of blown-out flip-flops.

Oliver, don't worry, I know that Nordy owners probably have custom made shoes and wouldn't want mine. I never suspected you.

A physio told me wearing boat shoes too often can cause plantar fasciititis. The thief may get his just desserts.

That makes a lot of sense if referring to the typical lightweight slip-on's. They provide no support. When we're doing a lot of walking, we tend more toward boat shoes that are more like tennis shoes. Well, in fact, we wear tennis shoes a lot and I'm not speaking generic but those for playing tennis. They're designed for grip but not to damage the courts. If wearing traditional deck shoes, a gel insert can help a lot.

Should be easy to spot as he usually has an eye patch & a crutch with a mangy looking cocky on the shoulder, who screeches out various lower deck nautical phrases.

Could be any one of a number of Forum members.

Not the 'mods' though of course, they are all fine upstanding ladies and gentlemen, it's the other swabs I'm talking about.

Boat shoes are the easy to slip on and off kind...because so many want you to take them off so much.

Otherwise...any shoe can be a boat shoe.....

Maybe they should be called yacht shoes instead....
