Boat Shoes

Boat shoes (also known as deck shoes) are typically leather with non-marking rubber soles which were originally designed for use on a boat but over last 50 years they are now used even in schools.

Boat shoes (also known as deck shoes) are typically leather with non-marking rubber soles which were originally designed for use on a boat but over last 50 years they are now used even in schools.

History

Modern boat shoes were invented in 1935 by American Paul A. Sperry of New Haven, Connecticut after noticing his dog's ability to run easily over ice without slipping. Using a knife, he cut siping into his shoes' soles, inspiring a shoe perfect for boating and a company called Sperry Top-Sider. Sperry Top-Siders are still a popular brand of boat shoe today, among many others, including Sebago and Timberland.

Boat shoes are used by sailors, as the name suggests; however, since the 1970s they have become casual footwear in coastal areas of the United States, Canada, Argentina, Australia, China, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Some boat shoes today have traditional white, non-marking soles, though many others today have dark non-marking soles. They usually have a moc-toe (like a moccasin) construction.

In the 1980s through to the early 1990s, and returning in the late 2000s, boat shoes were worn with everyday and dressy wear alike by both boys and girls and men and women. Besides being worn by themselves, many children and adults wear them with socks, especially low-cut, ankle socks and crew in white and many other bright neon and pastel colors. Many schools with uniform requirements allow boat shoes as acceptable uniform shoes.

Boat Shoe Characteristics

While all boat shoe manufacturers produce something a little different, styles get updated, and category lines blur, you can typically expect the following traits in your boat shoes:

Uppers – Boat shoes have a moc-toe design and are traditionally made of leather, although other materials such as cotton are used today. The first Sperry Top-Sider was brown leather, but now a mind-boggling array of colors are available.

Leather – Boat shoes are usually made with thicker genuine leathers and usually are unlined.

Laces – Sticking to the original design, you'll commonly find boat shoes equipped with leather laces. Though some are now available with cotton or synthetic laces.

Eyelets – Two to three eyelet designs are the norm for the Sperry Top-Sider, but single-eyelet versions are available.

Opening – The boat shoes typically have a bigger opening than normal moccasins, this makes it easier to get into these shoes.

Eyelets – Adding more eyelets would bring the tongue of the shoe up too high on the foot, making them less slip-on and warm weather friendly. There are versions like this available, but they're simply labeled as boots.

Wrap-around laces – The Sperry Top-Sider and other quality boat shoes will have a functional 360-degree lacing system. This gives the wearer the ability to cinch the shoe's collar for better security on the foot. You'll find that lower quality boat shoes have non-functional wrap-around lacing in place, just for cosmetic purposes.

Soles – As mentioned in the history section, the calling card of a boat shoe is its grooved or siped sole that's employed to increase traction on wet surfaces. If it doesn't have this sole, it's not really a boat shoe. As far as color, white or off white non-marking soles were the original, but many colors are available now that they're used for casual wear.

How to Wear

In a word, sock-less. If the leaves are on the trees, my ankles are feeling the breeze. Part of the allure of boat shoes is their effortless cool personality.

They're perfect for those days when you're rushing out the door. They slip-on hands free and go with just about any summer attire, with the exception of suits (and even that can work on some occasions).
