I don't know if these count as flip-flops since they don't have the toe-thong, but I bought 3 pairs because they friggin rule:

Just a word of warning - If you happen to step in dog doo, it's a BITCH to get it out of the opener. Other than that they are the most comfortable flip flop I've worn.

Who even thinks to get annoyed by something like this?

Fair warning, thanks. I suppose the same applies for mud which I'd probably step in before crap. Although, it's not quite as disgusting.

Best thing when you are sailing!

I'm not a flip flop guy myself, but I don't care what anyone else wears. I mean to each his own, but anyone that wears these while sailing is just to stupid to ever set foot on a boat.

I've been sailing for over 30 years, and I'm surprised that any experienced sailor would allow someone to wear flip flops on his boat, much less do it himself. It's just dangerous in my opinion. But I guess I was overly harsh in my previous post. Apologies. I'm feeling old and grouchy today.

edit: By the way, what kind of sailing do you do, and what kind of boats have you got?

NP - When I am racing I wear proper shoes but for the "after work, grab a beer and sail for a few before the sun goes down" day, which is most of my sailing these days, I have my flip flops on.

The big boat (which is not that big) is a 1967 20 foot Raven. Fast as hell and a great day sailor. The rest of the boats are a collection of boats my family and I make. I have three nutshell prams, a sea kyack, and we are just finishing up a one, the name is escaping me, but it's an 18 footer. I can't wait to take it out

The Raven - the one with the cover and the flag on the mast


The Nutshell Prams
