Another of my closet staples is the good ol’ boat shoe. I am particularly fond of the style because I love wearing tennis shoes (yes, I say tennis shoes, not sneakers…I’m from California, people), which can get a bit repetitive after a few wears, and the boat shoe is a great and slightly nicer alternative. I have also had better luck with my boat shoes holding up compared to tennis shoes. Leather > Canvas.
I recently received these boat shoes from Dooney & Bourke, and I’m already in love with them. They were comfortable right off the bat, and I only see great things going forward as I wear-them-in more. My favorite aspect is the beautiful white soles and laces against the navy leather. I’ll be coming back to these all summer, for sure! (I also love these red ones!)
