Barefoot or Sanuk flip flops, either the 'Fraid Not' or 'Beer Cozy'.

OK, I'll say it... I really dislike them (Crocs)!
To fill in the blanks I left earlier, Keen Newport's, Birkinstock sandals (best things ever,ever,ever!), Merrell Jungle Mocs, Merrell Blaze...
Did I say I love my Birks?

As they say, the holes in crocs is where your self esteem leaks out.

Wow. Yes. They are very popular around here in coastal Texas. I think they look stupid, but that's just my opinion. My wife says they are a serious fashion fail. 😄😄

Crocs can be practical, are seriously ugly, but prevent toe stubbing, and can be used for walking when off the boat. I prefer bare feet whenever possible onboard.
For a really bad Croc look, add socks.

Exactly why I where them while tending the garden. As to the socks, normally only in the winter

Another vote for Sperry Topsiders. I'm also a giant fan of Olukai flip flops. They're a little pricey, but have been very worth it in my opinion. Barefoot whenever possible.

I had a pair of croc flip flops once. They were fine until they tried to kill me. Apparently when the tread wears down below a certain point, they get wicked slippery when wet.

I have some Sperrys but don't wear 'em on the boat. I'm barefoot in warm weather, wear flip flops if walking on splintery docks and hot parking lots. Converse Chuck Taylors in winter.

Sperry's in general if I'm wearing shoes.
Crocs when I'm washing the boat. Stick like glue to my deck even when wet.

I sell Sperrys in my store but I can't wear them. They don't make them wide enough.

I wore Crocks all the time for a couple of years, on the boat and off. They are ugly but the toe box is wide enough for my webbed toes.

Crocks get very slippery as they wear and they wear fast. If you wear them on a boat, replace them often. When new they are very slip resitant.

I've switched to Teva sandals. I haven't worn shoes in two years or more. For formal wear I put on black socks with my sandals.

Ugh. Can't stand having straps between toes. Wasn't raised that way.
