Sailing barefoot is comfortable and convenient, but it exposes the feet to injuries and burns when good sailing shoes help keep your feet in good shape. A good sailing shoe should be comfortable, grippy, waterproof and quick-drying. Choosing the best shoe for your sailing expedition is a tricky job without the proper knowledge and right information.
Here is a list of the best shoes for sailing (waterproof)

- Dream city Men’s Water Shoes
- Sperry Top-Sider Men’s Sea Kite Boat Shoe
