A Cruiser’s Deck Shoe

Keens- Cruiser’s Deck Shoe

Indispensable Cruising Gear…boat shoes

I prefer bare feet when I am on our boat.  But when it comes to sailing, I will admit, I can be a bit clumsy either stubbing my toes on cleats or dropping a wench on them.   So I needed a good pair of shoes that will cover my toes.

Buying boat shoes should have the following qualities:

  • Non-marking soles–otherwise you might see black shoe prints on your deck.
  • Water-proof & dries fast.
  • Grips the deck- slipping on the deck can be dangerous.


Style should also be a consideration.  I like the light blue and white stripes in the shoe and there are many colors to choose from.  But most important is the fact that I can protect my toes with an added bonus of  hiding my non-pedicured nails.
