As the popularity of boating, sailing and kayaking continues to increase, so has the demand for water-worthy shoes and sandals that are not only comfortable and functional -- but stylish. Manufacturers including Sperry, Keen, Reef Guys and Chaco have stepped up to the challenge with new designs that are a necessity for those who spend lots of time on the water.

As the popularity of boating, sailing and kayaking continues to increase, so has the demand for boating shoes and sandals that are not only comfortable and functional -- but stylish. Sperry, Keen, Reef Guys and have stepped up to the challenge with new designs, and Chaco's 2006 sandals for men and women have lighter polyurethane footbeds than previous styles.

C. J. Buck, MIA of Xenna Corporation ( ) is an expert on foot care. Buck says, "The main concern people have with boating shoes is comfort and how to combat the smell that comes from footwear that's continually exposed to water. Though men are more interested in comfort, women want shoes that are both functional and look good. Women in particular tend to prefer sandal styles."

Buck adds, "The problem for many people is that wearing sandals with style requires having attractive feet. Though watersports sandals are extremely popular, they present a real dilemma for individuals who are embarrassed about how their feet look. Many people who aren't particularly athletic also avoid wearing sandals in summer or on vacation because of yellow, discolored toenails or dry, cracked or rough heels."

Xenna Corporation distributes two foot grooming products for nails and heels. NonyX® Nail Gel for yellow, discolored toenails and CalleX® Dry Heel Ointment for dry, cracked heels. Xenna's patented, diabetic-friendly NonyX® Nail Gel, takes a unique, natural approach to the problem of unattractive yellow or discolored nails - especially toenails.

Buck says, "NonyX is a topical, easy-to-use gel that breaks down and removes keratin debris - the discolored, yellow or thick granular buildup under nails that causes them to become discolored and unattractive. NonyX Gel softens keratin debris using natural ethanoic acid, which permits it to be scraped out with a manicure tool, beginning after about four weeks. Once the white or yellow keratin debris is removed, nails look clear and regular use of the gel keeps them keratin debris free and attractive."

Xenna also makes CalleX® Dry Heel Ointment, which uses natural enzymes to exfoliate and thin thick, flaky skin on feet and to smooth and rejuvenate dry, cracked heels. CalleX has been shown in consumer studies to significantly reduce thick, dry, flaking skin and cracking on soles and heels within 15 to 30 days. Acid-free and diabetic-friendly, CalleX moisturizes dry, rough or flaky skin, and exfoliates and thins thickened areas, while leaving normal skin unaffected.

NonyX Nail Gel can be purchased in the footcare section of Walgreens, Rite Aid, Longs, Eckerd Pharmacy , Brooks Pharmacy, Duane Reade, Medicine Shoppe pharmacies and Wal-Mart. CVS Pharmacy will have NonyX Gel on its shelves by the end of April. NonyX Gel is also available at HEB and Brookshire grocery stores, and online at, and
