    Boat Shoes, Loafers and Huaraches

    This is the slip on stoke thread. Official rules, no flip flops or house slippers unless you are Tedski. We are trying to maintain a level of class and sophistication befitting Old Larry.

    I went back to the 80's with a pair of Sperry's this spring. They've just reached the right fit after a summer of heat and foot sweat.

    Lol, back in 6th grade I got the first pair of those when they came out - blue and neon green. So easy to roll your ankle in when playing flag football on pavement.

    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Bmills, the three eye boat shoe is an aggressive varsity move. I have a stable of 2 eye gold cups that will make an appearance soon enough. For now, home office huaraches will have to suffice.

    I wore out two pairs of Sperrys in college, and that was wearing them everywhere almost every day and riding a skateboard to class. REALLY good top siders. Snagged a good pair a couple years ago for old time sake. Sorry, they are not yet properly seasoned. I keep forgetting I have them available.

    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Nice! Yeah, I love the Billfish Sperry but it’s strictly a summer shoe. I had to change to something more formal to meet the fam at the pizza joint.

    Boat Shoes, Loafers and Huaraches

    I gave up tying shoes about 10 years ago. Except for dress shoes (wingtips-hardly ever wear) and my old hiking boots i have no usable laces anymore. It’s freeing.

    Salomon sneakers
    Blunds
    Moccasins
    Wellies

    Paul Sperry, founder of the boat shoe, was an avid outdoorsman, sailor, hunter and photographer who lived to a crusty 87 years old. That's decent company.

    Born in New Haven. Taft School, Paris and a year at Dartmouth. Hmmmm. Sounds awfully preppie to me.

    But hey, comfy's the word and thank goodness form fellates function.
