Sailing Shoe Test Update: 2012
Reader-recommended shoes put to the test.
Whenever we report on sailing shoes or sandals (PS, Sept 2010, July 2010, June 2007, July 2007, Dec 2007), we get a heap of reader mail with recommendations for grippy, comfortable foot protection fit for sailors. Recently, the top reader-recommended shoes included styles from Crocs and Shoes for Crews. Curious to see whether these would measure up to our sailing-shoe criteria, we rounded up a few models from each maker. We added Adidasí Boat CC Laces water shoes to the fray since they are the sportswear giantís first foray into marine footwear. In total, we collected 10 different styles and put them through our standard shoe-test methods.
