I don’t think it’s too far out of the realm to say that on a normal day at a boat show I walk about ten miles. And that, my friends, will put a hurt on your body by the time the third day rolls around. I used to wear classic Sperry Topsiders on the docks, because I like the way they look, but they’re simply not built for that kind of punishment. And that’s exactly why I’m so high on Sperry’s SeaRacers. An athletic sneaker with plenty of support and cushioning, the SeaRacers have changed my boat-show experience drastically, and all of my joints thank them for that. The SeaRacers also have non-marking soles, and they look pretty good too: form and function working in perfect harmony. That’s exactly the kind of thing I like to see at a boat show.
