Boat Shoes. Love or hate?


Are you okay with boat shoes? I'm pretty sure my answer is still no. My sister can attest to the fact that I pick on her for wearing them. "Where's your boat, sis?" This is probably the closest (or furthest?) I've come to deeming them any kind of acceptable- Milly for Sperry. What do you think, loves? (You do get a free pass if you own a boat.)

I personally love boat shoes, but they're a preppy staple—and not everyone loves prep. I think the Milly for Sperry collaboration is interesting; I'm not sure I could wear them, but I think it's great to see two brands I like collaborating!

I say, ignore those people who roll their eyes at boat shoes. These things are darn comfortable and they're a wonderful shoe for spring and summer!

Ugh, reminds me too much of my freshman year. Sperry's, rolled up jeans, and polos. A period of my life I would not mind forgetting.

Boat shoes are wonderful. I wear nothing but Sperry's except for the running shoe when it's required.

That said, I don't know that I'd wear the one you have in your post there, but these are my favorite: http://www.sperrytopsider.com/store/SiteController/sperry/productdetails?catId=cat90046DM&productId=7-110610&skuId=***7********0768101*M100&stockNumber=0768101&showDefaultOption=true&subCatId=cat100066DM&subCatTabId=&viewall=

I LOVE boat shoes! They are so comfortable and great in the spring when it's wet outside. Why do you need a boat for them to be acceptable? People wear sneakers/tennis shoes when they're not running/playing tennis. People wear shoes that look like ballet shoes when they've never danced a day in their life, flip flops when they don't live near a beach and Uggs when they don't live near snow.

Boat shoes are a preppy style staple but I bet if you tried them on you would be a convert. They are sooo comfie but look nice at the same time. So timeless.

I like them! It took me a while to get a pair of Sperry's, but I finally opted for a metallic pair. They are so cute and very comfortable!

Personally, I love the Milly + Sperry collaboration. I love my current Sperrys, navy with a little seersucker, and wouldn't mind those either!

I was definitely not into this trend and yet somehow I picked up a pair this weekend at Nordstrom. Definitely taking them back though. My feet look GIGANTIC in them.
