Should You Wear Socks With Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes?


If you have read our previous blog post about Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes you will be aware that the soles of Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes were inspired by the herringbone pattern on the soles of Prince, the Spaniel’s feet.  Up until then any kind of footwear worn on boats exposed the wearer to the prospect of having a tragic accident due to the slippery surface caused by water on the boats and jetty.

Although still extremely popular with sailors, Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes have become a stylish alternative to trainers and boots during the summer months.  Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes are considered to be rather preppy in some circles, particularly if worn with chinos and a blazer.

Whether you wear your Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes on the lake, the beach or about town you will be guaranteed luxury and comfort, regardless of what type of design you choose.   Boat shoes differ from loafers in that loafers don’t have laces while boat shoes have laces and lacing around the side.

Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes can be worn with a variety of different trouser styles, including shorts, chinos and jeans.  Here are a selection of trousers and shorts that you could wear with your Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes.
