You might believe me if I told you I spent the free time of my youth around water whether it was a pool, the Potomac, or the Chesapeake. But would you believe me if I told you, back in those days, Sperry was my footwear of choice? Hard to picture. But it’s true. This black leather clad maven was all about a good colorblocked Sperry back in the day. I had a brown pair for school, a blue pair for the boat, and a white pair for when I was feelin’ sassy. My, how times have changed.
These days, you won’t catch me in a boat shoe unless I’m soaking in the sun at an Orioles game or I’m out tubing on the boat or hanging down by the water. Of course that was my mentality until Sperry created this genius hybrid of a shoe. It’s such a super cool throwback that’s perfectly acceptable for all kinds of situations in 2015 including, but not limited to, brunch, errands, country concerts, and destroyed denim cut offs. Did this shoe and I just become best friends? YEP.
The “boat shoe” is back, people.
I’m planning on spending the summer in these guys so get used to seeing them around. In the meantime, I’m wishing away the cold weather (yes, me! wishing away winter!) by pairing them with destroyed black denim or dark skinnies. Try cuffing your skinnies at the ankle to create a more relaxed summery look.
