It's time to embark on our next adventure. Join the Adventure Club as we head out on our next quest. With the warm-weather here for the summer, we're taking every opportunity to get outside and explore. One of our favorite summer activities hands down is boating—who could say no to a sunny day spent out on the water with friends?
Now, if you're going boating this summer, there are a few essentials you'll need before you set off on your journey. First, up we'll state the obvious here and go with boat shoes. A good pair of top-siders will keep your toes protected and stop you from slipping on the deck. Second, leave all expectations behind on the shore. Adventures are supposed to have some element of spontaneity, so go at this trip with an open mind. Third, the playlist - no trip is complete without a solid set of tracks to set the mood. Last but not least, a group of friends that are down for whatever the day brings your way.
Boat shoes have a unique design and sturdy construction. Try reinventing and creating new boat shoe style combinations with your wardrobe. The great thing about boat shoes is that they work with most summer outfits. For the warmer sun-filled months, opt for playing with fun colors like mustard yellow, sea foam green, and pale blue. Summer is the time to get adventurous with your style choices! Brands like Sperry, Swims and People Footwear have some trendy and functional options that perfect for summer.
Originally made for the yacht and sailboat, men's boat shoe style has evolved to be less aligned with the preppy look and more as a classic summer piece. Boat shoes hit the smart/casual sweet spot—they can just as easily be dressed up and down, tailoring to your every need.
The Sperry brand in particular has long been recognized as the pioneers of boat shoes—you can't go wrong with these well made classics. Sperry's shoes perfectly combine premium construction with a breathable upper, ensuring that you are comfortable on and off shore
