If this is the case then simple go for the style of boat shoe that is the most aesthetically pleasing for you! Although you need to make sure you are buying a good quality pair of boat shoes. Good quality boat shoes should be made of good quality leather and have a leather lining.

Of course another of the main consideration to take into account when purchasing your new boat is the comfort. An uncomfortable pair of boat shoes are useless. Boat shoes made in the traditional moccasin style are designed specifically comfort and will have padded insole to accompany the leather lining

Another important consideration is the durability of your boat shoes as they will need to withstand the elements that the sea will throw at you. A well made boat shoe will be far more durable than cheaper counterparts. Try and stay away from mass produced boat shoes that use cheaper leathers and rubbers for the sole.
