@rtjhnstn I’d hope so. Deck shoes (boat shoes) would be gross with socks on. Especially when they are wet deck shoes.
@kittykat9180 Deck/boat shoes have non slip soles (like Sperry Topsiders for example - I have several pairs of those in various states of disrepair) and are often made of a treated leather that can withstand being wet with salt water and still stay soft. The inside of them are finished really smoothly. Sometimes they are made of canvas but those don’t last as long since they are often wet.
More on where I’m going/what I’m doing than the shoes. I won’t take off socks to wear shoes (sandals are not shoes!), but I won’t go out of the way to put on socks if I’m just running to grab the mail.
