No skis? No board? No problem. “I think [people] would be surprised to know that I know how to barefoot waterski — that’s a quirk,” Jim Zwiers told Footwear News. It’s certainly an unusual habit, but maybe folks shouldn’t be so surprised: Zwiers is well-known as a lover of all things involving aquatic terrain, including waterskiing (barefoot or, as shown here, not), boating and fishing. Zwiers, who grew up on Lake Michigan, will doubtlessly have a few more remote lakes, streams, seas and oceans to explore as he takes on Wolverine’s far-reaching global business.
