The 5 Best Boat Shoes For Summer

Boat shoes are basically what you get when you hope to find something right in between those two.

No boat required.

By Louis Baragona, Men’s Health

When it comes to summer style, finding the right shoes can be the most confusing part of picking out an outfit. One second you're working out in sneakers at the gym, the next you're desperately grabbing sandals for comfort, practically at risk of overheating.

Sneakers don't always transition well outside of the gym and flip-flops are – well, flip-flops. Boat shoes work in different environments and climates, so you can wear them when you need a little comfort but don't want to be too casual. Yes, you can wear them even if you're not on a boat.

[post_ads]Though one question – to wear socks with boat shoes or not to wear socks with boat shoes? – remains, at least for now you can solve the confusing issue of which footwear to choose this summer.


Top-Sider Original 2-Eye Boat Shoes


[post_ads]Of course, Sperrys are immediately what comes to mind when you think of boat shoes. They maintain a classic, iconic look that doesn't cross the line into nautical gaudiness or trendy cheesiness, so they can last you longer than one summer.


Tree Skipper


[post_ads]If you're new to the boat shoe game and don't want to quite commit to Sperry-levels of preppiness, these are a happy medium. They maintain the look of a sneaker but with the level of ventilation, structure, and durability you need to hit the beach.


Chuck Taylor Deck Star Low Top


Straight-up boat shoes aren't everyone's thing. That's ok. These slip-ons from Chuck Taylor are basically Converse, but with the breathable comfort you need for summer. They can fool you into loving boat shoes, whether you like it or not.



Piper Cove Boat Shoes


Just in case you avoid color at all costs, these black boat shoes are the perfect solution. And because Timberland is known for its high-quality kicks, you can rest assured that you're getting your money's worth.



TOMS Culver Lace-Up


TOMS is the authority on slip-ons, so it makes sense that they'd craft a boat shoe in their signature style. The lace-ups fall in between boat shoe and sneaker, so they can work with a variety of styles.
