Choosing sailing footwear is game of compromises: don deck shoes and your dogs will howl in the heat; wear open-toed sandals and you risk a trip to the podiatrist if you “discover” any deck hardware. To this end, Timberland recently launched its new line of Mion sailing footwear. Featuring an ergomorphic footbed that molds to your foot, a sculpted superstructure that holds your foot firmly in place, an ingenious lacing system, a protective toebox, and a sole that becomes stickier when wet, the Current Sandal addresses a number of problems. Best of all, Mion uses renewable energy (solar and wind) to manufacture its footwear. $100, Mion Footwear, 866-784-6466, www.mionfootwear.com
