More recently, many of the leading brands, such as Sebago, have produced casual deck trainers for sailors that required something sportier and suited to high performance sailing. Moving away from the conventional boat shoe, they offer a more substantial and thicker sole that is moulded to the foot, for a more unique fit to offer exceptional grip on deck.
A classic example is the pioneering and ever popular Sebago Wave Extreme Trainer for aggressive innovation and design. This popular choice of sailing shoe is extremely light in weight due to construction from mesh and synthetic leathers which are very comfortable and quick drying.
Most styles have removable soles and contain anti-microbial treatments to help the materials stay clean and allow for the product to contain water for longer periods of time – a perfect solution to marine foot discomfort.
