One of my favorite things about summer is lazing about on a boat – sail boat, motor boat or yacht the one thing that remains the same is the need for boat shoes. Whether it’s the original Sperry Top-Siders (made in Maine) or a neon pair of Vans these shoes are not only practical but fun and fashionable.
Boat shoes are celebrating their 75 year anniversary this spring and there a multitude of styles, colors and prints to choose from. My fav is still the classic Sperry Top-Sider but I’m definitely going to be adding a pair of Vans in a neon yellow shade to my summer wardrobe.
Boats make you a little queasy? No worries, these shoes can be worn with mini skirts, shirts for a fun preppy look ( I would add a funky t-shirt to lend this look some edge – try Alexander McQueen’s Skull t-shirt.
