Ahoy! Okay, so nowadays boat shoes, also known as topsiders, aren't just for use on a boat -- so don't feel left out if you don't own your very own yacht to utilize this style to the fullest! Boat shoes, named for their rubber soles and anti-slip traction but more recognizable by their looks nowadays than their function, are making waves in the style spectrum for their casual-cool summer vibe, perfect for dressing down a sundress or pairing with your favorite worn denim. Much like oxfords, topsiders are traditionally menswear, but in the recent season have been adapted with more feminine details and fresher colors to suit the ladies' summer style. Opt for the original brand, Sperry Topsider, or go for a more updated spin on the classic like these metallic Joan & Davids! See the slideshow for the full selection of my favorite boat shoes!
