    A sandal is a type of shoe.

    No way. Sandals are sandals and shoes are shoes
    @Bruce_Butterfield I am painfully aware... just looking for my sanity.

    If you have a rule "no shoes in the boat" and someone wears sandals and then argues with you that they are wearing sandals not shoes then they are just being argumentative and have no desire to follow your rule. So start saying no footwear in the boat. Or maybe do like I do and keep a pair of "boat sandals" in the side pocket that are used when you have to go to the fuel pump or whichever.

    However of course sandals are not shoes, they are both footwear, as are boots. But they are not the same as shoes.

    With socks, sandals definitely are shoes!

    Look carefully to see the formal use of sandals in a serious setting.

    Better question is if Eric is a "real skier" or just a "trick skier"

    Nobody should ever ever ever wear sandals. Including the 80 year old men in the trailer park on the beach in Florida with the black socks pulled all the way up with flamingos in the yard.

    100% false statement......This is to help settle a discussion between my better half and me.

    More then likely.....This will infuriate her when I tell her I was right and basically make things worse.

    If you are talking reef flip flops with the bottle opener yes and I wish I could wear them year round.

    Not shoes. But neither shoes nor sandals should ever enter the boat.

    They should not be worn with socks
    They are not above the “business casual” line sadly
    No shoes of any kind in the boat
    Reefs have no arch support but bottle opener is clutch
    Of the questionable health decisions I make, the shit I step in with my reefs isn’t even top 10

    Shoes can be worn for athletic endeavors, sandals are for chilling and when on my way to my favorite athletic endeavor.

    Shoes are things that cover the bottom of your feet so you don't hurt your feet - sandals = shoes. Not saying that I want to weld while wearing them

    Nothing wrong with wearing them all year. Nor is there anything wrong with having your standard and your “Dress” Rainbows.

    @eleeski You are a legend on here and have wisdom beyond belief, but you have proved my point that engineers can't dress themselves! hahaha.

    Sandals are a type of footwear. Shoes are a type of footwear. Sandals and shoes are not the same type of footwear. The same way apples and oranges are both fruit, but they are not the same fruit.

    Sandals are appropriate all year long! Especially with socks!

    @eleeski I was in that parking lot a month ago on April 17th as the last stop on my spring skiing road trip while breaking in my new IKON pass. A couple of days at Mammoth, a couple at Mt. Rose with freshies and wind, and then one day at Squaw for the first time in about 40 years. The Quarry in Corona is running out of water in the next few weeks so I'm already looking forward to winter. Rocking the wagon and sandals.
