Best Boating Flip Flops

In Marine Sportsman, on April 05, 2018 - 18:17, Tags , , , , ,


Flip flops are a shoe popularized in warmer climates and when summer seasons roll around. Their demand is understandable. The ability to walk around freeing your feet and keeping them cool, and the easy on and off capabilities make the traditional light weight sandal a favorite for water lovers and beach-goers everywhere.

However if you are not careful to choose the right pair of flip flops, the shoes also come with their own set of dangers.

If you spend most of your time out on a boat, you need shoes that are going to be safe while you’re on deck and that are going to protect you and your feet at all times.

Here are somethings to consider when selecting the best boating flip flops.

Wearing Flip Flops on a Boat

No matter how much you try, keeping water off the deck of a boat is pretty impossible. That said, you’ll likely still need to walk across it at some point while you’re on the boat, so you need shoes that are going to allow you to safely do that and without making you so scared to walk you’re no longer enjoying your time  on the boat.

If flip flops are too sketchy and water shoes don’t protect your feet, what is the best boating flip flop?

FlipRocks

The great thing about FlipRocks and their patented interchangeable GripToeNite pads which let you keep your feet cool and enjoy the breeze and mist while still staying grounded and leaving your toes protected.

The Marine Sportsman pad from FlipRocks is made specifically with boaters in mind. It features a felt sole for balance and stability and protects the top-deck of your boat because they are non-marring on the floor surface.

Toss your old, dangerous shoes and pick up a pair of FlipRocks today! Your toes (and knees) will thank us!
