deck shoes??

I'm looking for some ultra soft deck shoes or sandles that don't mind being used and are comfortable to wear in the water and in the summer.

My old pair have had it and have almost crippled me today, they've been binned.

So what do you guys use?

I'm pretty happy with my Dubarrys. Not quite sure why the Goretex, but very comfortable

What about Crocs?

Take all the punishment, stay comfy and don't care if they get wet.

Crocs look good and good value.

I saw some Sharx today, looked much more fashionable and had a fashion price tag too. 35

I'd never heard of these Crocs before today and they sound superb!

I have been reading about crocs and it says that they must be worn loose, the heel strap looks a bit dodgy, however everyone that seems to have tried them think they're great.

Thanks Ian, we don't have a Trago around here I don't think. I'm a size 12, can just about live with an 11 though.

Andy,

I swear by crocs as well however get the original ones and not the cheap knock offs, they last a lot longer. They cost about 30 quid.

They are also antibacterial and you can stick them in the dishwasher, which is why nurses like em.

Just found and purchased 2 pairs of really comfy shoes. Velcro strap, front half made of wet suit material, heavy duty, no mark soles. They also look quite "dressy". If I get my feet wet they stay warm. Not cheap tho. about $70.00.
