Prepsters and dads everywhere have embraced the Sperry Topsider, a classic boat shoe, for their everyday wear. I believe in appropriate footwear for different activities, so if you’re boating, Sperrys are fine. But their incorporation into all-purpose wear–it’s not to my liking at all.
Then when I was looking for some cute wedges for work, I came across a bunch of bright, colorful, nautical wedges. I couldn’t believe they were Sperrys! Better than a brightly colored Topsider, these shoes incorporate nautical details and motifs without being all-out boat shoes. In other words, you probably shouldn’t sail in these, but you can definitely be sassy!
Here is a selection of cute Sperrys; you can find even more styles at Zappos.
What do you think? Cute? Or too nautical?
