I haven’t written a men’s post in quite a while and with Spring here, I figured it’s about time. One of my personal favorite trends is the return of the boat shoes. These were in last year, and they’re back in style this Spring. I love boat shoes because they’re like a snazzier sneaker; comfortable, stylish, and simple. Of course, you can get as colorful as you want with the variety of boat shoes available, but I’m all about the classics.
Below are some boat shoes I like, and if they’re not your thing, no worries, a classic smooth pair of kicks is always in style.
I love the play of color with the navy and the bold green. They have a dash of personality and still remain chic without being too trendy. These shoes are also available in a cognac, ivory, burgundy, green. Available here: Cole Haan Air Yacht Club $148
These classic yet simple boat shoes from Sperry Top-Sider are the classic of all boat shoes. This brand specializes in the shoe and their wide range of leather colors really is your best bet for whatever color you’re feeling. They are also less dramatic with the clean lines and authentic feel. For $75, they’re a great price! Check out the variety of colors!
Below is their Seasonal Original Boat Shoe, the shape of the toe and the contrast with trim makes these special.
These Marc Jacobs boat shoes are for those who want a little more trend. The style is smoother with less detail, but the look is still sailor-esque. I love the simple front and the detailed back. Check them out here: Marc Jacobs Boat Shoes $330
These Ralph Lauren boat shoes are perfect to start the Spring season. Whether you’re yachting or just running around town, these chic boat shoes are stylish and super preppy. Check them out here: Ralph Lauren $295

These hip boat shoes add a touch of color blocking to the basic boat shoe. From Rockport, a very comfortable brand of shoes, brings your style with comfort. Rockport Ports of Call Perth $110
I hope you enjoy these style as I feel they all are unique in their own ways. Boat shoes are a great staple for a Spring/Summer wardrobe that can go with practically anything in your wardrobe.
Rock these babies with shorts, linen pants, Summer suits, denim and everything else you can think of. Boat shoes are comfortable and stylish, and who doesn’t look for those two factors when shopping?
