Spring is in the air! At least in beautiful Austin, which is such a refreshing change from the never-ending winter we’ve been experiencing in NYC. This trip has been the perfect opportunity to take my drawstring pants and crop tops out of retirement and wear my new Sperry Authentic Original Washed Canvas 2-Eye boat shoes! They are super lightweight and insanely comfortable (and easy to pack). With non-marking runner outsole and shock absorbing heel cup for added comfort, I’ve been basically living in them since getting to Texas.
Whether you’re going for a preppy look with khakis or something more nautical to go out boating in (or do as I do and wear them as a casual every-day shoe), Sperry is mixing up their classic silhouettes this spring. Having invented the original boat shoe in 1935, the brand has come a long way at 80 years young and are more versatile and trendy than ever. Expanding into casuals, they now offer a variety of styles spanning beyond boat shoes to include wedges, flats and sandals.
I’ve owned many a Sperry boat shoes (my step-mother gets them for me every Christmas!), and what I really love about the Authentic Original Washed Canvas 2-Eye boat shoe is how soft the top part of the shoe is. My other pairs are more traditional boat shoes and stiffer. These are so comfortable they feel like slippers on. Available in six shades and patterns (I’m rocking the Turquoise) for $80, check them out at sperry.com
