They look like slippers. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing those on a boat.

You have to drink a lot of cognac to wear those vanilla shoes! 🤡

They are less gay than Crocs is the only favorable thing I can say about them.

$59 is too expensive? WalMart has you spoiled. Not sure how you can afford boating if you love a pair of shoes but can fathom spending $59 and think that shoes should cost $25.

I gotta agree. If $59 for a special purpose shoe is too expensive, how much do you usually pay and for what?

Don't get me wrong good shoes that are worn in a daily basis are worth their weight in gold !

Wolverine "Durashocks" and Keene "Austins" are what I live in and are worth every penny

But these $60 are extruded foam and cost Literally $2 to make !!!

I like Shamino! They look a lot like Crocs but have great hold power and are very comfortable.
