Of course, going barefoot is awfully nice, but when you’re out houseboating there'll be times when you’ll want a nice supportive shoe that you can get wet. For great options, check out West Marine’s Quiksilver Men's AG47 Amphibian Shoe and Helly Hansen Women's Aquapace 2 Watershoe.
The Quiksilver shoe is a one-piece no-sew shoe with molded structural underlays, engineered drainage ports, and a custom spacer mesh liner for breathability. The soft injected midsole offers your boater sockless comfort while rubber pods on the sole ensure good grip.
Likewise, the Aquapace is an ideal breathable slip-on watershoe with an EVA midsole for comfortable flexibility and protection. The modular rubber outsole with HellyGrip rubber ensures sure footing. These boat shoes sell for $79 and $85, respectively.
