Everyone is pushing Boat Shoes as the casual shoe for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. That’s all well and good but if you don’t own a boat, don’t know anyone who does own a boat, and are not within a 300 mile radius of an actually launched, sitting in the water sailboat that’s ready for you to tread on its deck with your boat shoes… it might look a little too trendy.
Maybe you don’t have access to a sailboat, but you probably have a car. Hopefully one you like to drive. And a slip-on Driving Loafer is the perfect alternative to the just-a-touch too trendy boat shoe.
They’re comfortable, they can be dressed up or dressed down, and they come in a variety of styles and price ranges.
The Ralph Lauren Venetian Driver is classic, the American Eagle Driving Moc is Cheap, and you’ve got to love the small fabric detail at the back of the Tommy Hilfiger Isaac Driver.
Plus, you could wear any of those three pairs with a cotton blazer and not look like you were about to welcome a group of retirees aboard a cruise ship.
Try doing that while wearing a blazer and boat shoes.
