With holiday season in full swing and hotter climates just around the corner it can only mean one thing… a whole new summer wardrobe!
Boat shoes have long been an ultimate summer essential. They are part loafer, part trainer and proven to be nothing but popular. Also known as ‘deck shoes’ an inimitable boat shoe is this season’s must have style.
Boat shoes are usually constructed with canvas uppers and a contrasting rubber sole (unique from the soles of trainers or other casual shoes) and designed to be slip resistant.
Generally worn without socks, boat shoes are loved for a variety of reasons. Number one is for comfort. This means they are appropriate footwear for daytime, night time, long walks or even a dinner date.
Number two, they’re smart yet casual, easy to wear and perfect for any occasion (although we wouldn’t recommend wearing them with a suit – this definitely breaks all fashion rules).
Lastly, number three, would have to be nautical appeal, the same reason we love navy and white stripes, we will always love boat shoes. Word on the grapevine is that Paul A. Sperry got the idea to develop the signature sole after a nasty spill on his own boat.
Why not dress your feet in stylish sophistication from the sole upwards. With incredible fit, elite protection and style beyond measure… we’ve handpicked our favourite designs from our website for you to enjoy.
