Default Soft Science boat shoes

Has anyone used any of the Soft Science boat shoes ? If so what do you think of them , I have Plantar fasciitis so I'm looking for shoes that provide good support on a rolling deck. Any advice good or bad would be much appreciated , I can't find a store anywhere near me that carries them. Thanks !

J&M in Orange Beach had them. Not sure if they still do. I looked at them, but went with OluKai. I also have plantar fasciitis, so I just put the Dr. Scholls inserts in them.

Love them. Just bought another pair a couple days ago. And they're the only flip flops I'll wear too.

Can I ask which style you have or are the different ? I'm leaning toward the Fin 2.0 's .

I have been wanting a pair of the Soft Science but I have not found a local retailer. Do you know where they are sold, other than online?

I have been wearing the fin 2.0 for a couple of years now, just ordered a new pair and threw my first pair away that were worn out. I like them so much I wear them most of the time. I have the blue and the grey. They are very soft to walk on, don't mark up the deck, and dry pretty quick. I take the insoles out of the shoes and throw it all in the washing machine then sit in the sun to dry and they come clean and no odors. I will say this and it is stated several times in the reviews, the first time you wear them you will get a blister on your heel, I only had this happen with the first pair and none since have done that but it is a common thing. Half Hitch tackle in Destin has some on hand, Navarre doesn't carry them. If you go on the website they have a list of retailers. I order off the website and they have excellent customer service. The first pair I ordered I guessed at the size and I got too small, they exchanged no problem.

You guys do know that you can cure that plantar fasciitis at home right? I had it happen to me about two months ago, suffered with it for a little while and said this is ridiculous and started looking for remedies. The boot you sleep in at night helped and wasn't that uncomfortable but the thing that has it almost gone is I got a roller ball massager and my wife runs it up and down my calf muscle every night. It stretches that tendon and loosens it up. Have been doing this about ten days and it is almost gone.

Jeez man, put me on the spot. i have no idea which ones they are. my grandson works at academy and got them free as a incentive reward thing. i'll get a pic, hold on.
the pair on the left gets more wear in the boat. the other pair is more dressy and i haven't got em wet yet.
