Super Cool Shoes
These are definitely not your grandfathers boat shoes. With a proprietary water evacuation channeling in the midsole, a hydrophobic textile lining and a lace garage to keep laces from catching cleats, the SPS Force 8 shoe includes the kind of technology previously found only aboard an Americas Cup boat. The result is a pair of incredibly comfortable shoes with traction on steeply canted decks that has to be experienced to be believed. Switching over from a pair of older shoes, I found I had to adjust so that I didnt get tripped up shuffling over the nonskid on my regular rides foredeck. Theyre that good. Available in either red, white and blue, or Quantum Racings team colors, they are also very cool to look at.
