Sperry, maker of boat shoes since 1935, has reinvented its own wheel with the Figawi performance collection. With a 720-degree reinforced lacing system, the shoes provide superior stability and support. The Molded-Wave siping provides multidirectional grip. The waterproof leather-and-mesh design repels water and transports it away from the inside of the shoe. Aegis Microbe Shield incorporated in the mesh also kills bacteria, preventing harsh odors associated with wet shoes. The lightweight shoe and its foam core will even float if you happen to lose one overboard. A variety of men's and women's styles is available in sizes 7 to 13 for men and 5 to 11 for women. Retail cost is $69.95 for the women's Figawi Zipper; $79.95 for the Men's Figawi Low. Call 800-617-2239 or visit www.sperrytopsider.com.
