I’ve recently switched over to wearing Zem shoes for rowing, and I think they are perfect. They were originally designed as beach volleyball shoes, so they look weird but function well. They are essentially ankle-height neoprene booties with reinforcing bands and a split toe for mobility. They are also great for SUP. They are sturdy enough for minimalist running, and can slip right inside the shoes in the boat, hence minimizing dock time and solving the problem of wet socks and shoes on the dock! Plus you can crumple them up, store them in the car, and just throw them in the washing machine when they get smelly. Check them out!
