Sperry Top-Sider's Chime Shoe

These slip-on sailing shoes are more protective than flip-flops and easier than sneakers.

The Chime from Sperry Top-Sider is made for women who need a protective shoe in and out of the water. Elasticized strap closures allow a secure fit and make them easy to slip on and off. The footbed is removable, and the rugged rubber outsole helps you keep your balance. They're fast-drying too. $80, www.sperrytopsider.com.
