Wow I am really surprised to hear so many of these comments.
The reason I went to crocs was because I was slipping in boat shoes!
Haven't had any issues in 4 years with the crocs.
I even wear them at home in lieu of slippers!

Crocs on my ugly feet look, um, ugly.

Although I did buy some Crocs awhile back. They are sort of comfortable, but squishy, make my feet sweat and ... did I mention ugly. Sitting in the back of my closet. Didn't use them enough to find out if they lost their non skid properties over time.

I'm partial to these Topsider Billfish slip ons (or Dockers equivalent) for boat and informal social occasions and Sketchers or New Balance 623 sneakers for walking.

Barefoot mostly. Speedo Seaside lace water shoes if decks are wet or while washing her down; they're also great for dinghy to shore use. Flip-flops for walking docks, shops and parking lots. Oh... and nice Topsiders if going out and I put pants on!

BTW - those Speedo shoes are super "grippy" on boat, comfortable, and dry quickly. And were available at Costco - Cheap!


OH! I'm with the "Crocks are ugly fashion fails" group!

I hate Crocs, not so much because of the looks, but I never found a pair that was comfortable. On the boat I wear Olukai Noheas. Onshore, it's Sperry Topsiders or sneakers.

My wife almost lives in Crocs.

Vans for me, I like the canvas upper material and the tread on the soles works well in the boating environment. I have a pair of nice "boat shoes" topsiders that look good but the leather laces sometimes have a mind of their own.

Vans and flip-flops (usually Reef) are my go-to's.

Me too, wide feet. New Balance (Dunham St Johnsbury) is the only sandal I have ever found wide enough.

I'm in shorts and sandals Apr-Oct and a pair can go 1.5 to 2 summers. When they go on sale I buy 2 pairs. The Vegas NB outlet often has them at about half regular retail.

I recommend we with wide feet contact Shaquille O'Neal and find out who makes his shoes. MOF... there must be "custom" cobbler[s] who specifically cater to Big Peoples BIG Feet. May be quite expensive - but high quality too... for extended duration wear ability!

Art we do not have big feet. We have manly feet. Those who can buy shoes in just any store have little girly feet.

Any shoe manufacturer in the world will make shoes for him. Rest assured the shoe manufacturers have his foot mold and are always ready to oblige.
