Hiking Boot Style Goes Strong with Sperry

When I went to Pitti this time around, I saw a good amount of the classic alpine boot done in all kinds of variations. I even saw some really great ones by one Italian brands but they had never heard of The Shoe Snob (or even what a blog was, in 2016 go figure) and wouldn’t let me take pictures as they are still in the archaic mentality that someone will steal from them. It […]

WORST SHOES EVER!! (yet big laugh at the same time!)

I look at these (and think about who they came from, two great companies) and can’t help but think that when the designers were thinking about these, they were either incredibly drunk or just wanted to take the piss (have a joke), big time! The funniest thing is that they were actually being considered, having been made up for the A/W 2010 collaboration between Sperry & Band of Outsiders. Yet, thankfully, someone intelligent put the […]

My Shoes #21 – Sperry #1

I can wear them with anything except a suit and the outfit will coordinate. And to prove just that, I decided to dress them up a little bit for this party that I want to and create an […]

During […]

Today’s Favorites – Band of Outsiders

While most brands are making boat shoes that all look the same, the collaboration between Sperry and Band of Outsiders finally gave the world some other options to choose from, and better one’s for that matter. While you usually find your average boat shoes in leather uppers, what’s cool about these Band of Outsiders remixes is that they are all made with something other than your traditional leather ranging from wool, nylon, suede to even […]

Spring Time = Boat Shoes

Every year in the States, without fail, you see the boat shoes come out just as sure as the sun does. You would think that the wearing of boat shoes would be an American pastime considering the amount of men that break them out each year. And why wouldn’t they? The classic boat shoe serves many purposes. Not only are they used for boating activities but they have also been adopted into society as a […]
