I don’t wear them in the boat but these are the most comfortable flips I’ve owned. Took a few days to get acclimated to them but wear them everyday.

Keen Wiemea . ugly as hell, and a conversation starter, but I LOVE the closed toe. The safety shoe of flip flops.

That's me, can't stand the strap between my toes, so I tried the Crocs slides, wore those until I wore a hole all the way thru them. Couldn't have been happier with them.

Sanuk beer cozy flip-flops, like walking on a cloud, or something like that. Seriously, they are extremely comfortable, much more so than the Sperrys that they replaced.

If you need some arch support try Lynco...

Check out Spenco. They have a support in the center of the sandal. They are like nothing else and extremely comfortable.

I bought a brown pair of them at costco for $11. Good flip flop for the $.

I find Crocks to be dangerous slippery when wet.
I like Reefs, they have good arch support, but I have switched to Oaklui Nalu Slides. The slides are easy on off but not as secure for a lot of walking.

Have always been a Reef guy, but I tried these this summer so far and are very impressed.

This is more important than many realize. Myself included in that. I wore reefs, Teva, etc for most of my life. Now I’m paying for it. Been a year trying to get Plantar fasciitis under control. If you never want to get it buy something with arch support. I used to ignore people advising that. Wish I had listened now.

Wearing the olukai now and has certainly made a difference. I bought 4 pairs after I started feeling relief. I know the OP said he doesn’t want this brand anymore and that fine. Just pick something with some support!

Those Cobian Draino's are great once they break-in. They "squeak" a lot in the meantime. I have flat, wide feet and these work well.

I wear those too. Pretty good and I have not had the squeaking problem.

I was firm believer that proper man should wear combat boots, but then I learned flip-flops were adopted by Vietcong ;-)

Test I do for flips is on standing pool of water on hard, flat surface. Some of them are deadly slippery, particularly ones with foam based soles.

The care instructions say to not get them wet. They're made to wear on boat and you're not supposed to get them wet? At $95, I don't think so.

No one has mentioned Oofos. They are as comfortable as any. I use them as "house slippers" so not sure how they'd work in a wet environment but can't believe they'd be worse than the Crocs.

One brand had a bottle opener on the bottom. Scuffed up boats decks real bad. Look at the bottom before purchase.
