Today’s Favorites – Buttero Boat Shoes

You may read this blog, look at all of my ‘what I am wearing’ posts, and think that I am just some snob that wears nothing but high end shoes and ‘dress’ outfits, but in actuality I am quite a casual guy. I probably have about 10-12 pairs of jeans, which are by far my all time favorite type of trousers. In reality I am a jeans guy and prancing around in my G&G’s doesn’t really sit that well in a pair of jeans. So what do I wear with my jeans when I am out and about? Well, after graduating from Adidas and Nike, I moved up to the big boys sneakers: Vans and Converse, but more importantly started rocking boat shoes, and lots of them. In my heyday I probably owned around 8-9 Sperrys, but have since scaled back to about 3-4 pairs. That being, I was quite intrigued when I saw this pair by Buttero, as it gave a really nice twist on your classic boat shoe, with that contrasted jagged edge sole. I always love seeing brands try to recreate the boat shoes and how well their fare with it. Some like Buttero, do quite well as shown above, and others fail miserably…..
