On Board we're barefooters except for a pair of soft moccasins I keep just inside the engine room door.

RE: What do you look for in a boat shoe/sandal

Spring is sort of here so I been looking/shopping for new spring summer out fits and SHOES.*****I have concluded that most boat shoes and/or what most people wear are just to darn UGLY.**** Being our ramp is steep I prefer shoes with a raised heel as they are level going up and level going down if you walk back wards.* Also*a heel*is easier on your back and make you walk on the ball of your foot instead of the heal, which is better for your body as a whole.
Instead of targeting boater in general I would target the females as males will wear almost anything?* Females prefer something fashionable and will pay more.* I mean why do you think dept stores are 75% female cloths.* As far as I know and see there is not a boat shoes that are targeted to females?*

If the shoe is narrow with a narrow/pointed toe, a slight raised heel, slip on, non skid/slip soul and some color, it would appeal to the females.* Since there is no stylish boat shoe for women they mostly wear their daily normally shoes/sandals/tennis shoes.* I really liked the high heels with the flippers but WITHOUT the flipper front and the heel a bit lower.* Maybe a wedge?

Anyway, time to start putting a way the heavier winter wear and shoes, and start being out the warmer spring summer wear and shoes.**Anyway, just a thought.*
