Boat Shoes & Moccasins

As rustic and modest alternatives to traditional lace-ups, boat shoes and moccasins occupy the middle ground between decidedly casual and elegant footwear options, making them an essential addition to the well-rounded men’s wardrobe. With their unmistakable whipstitched detailing, tanned leather renditions of preppy deck shoes complement casual daytime tailoring, while supple suede moccasins add an artisanal affectation to unfussy sneaker-style wearability. The shaggy, fringed detailing of the mocassin is emphasized in a deliberate a throwback to the touchstones of the flower-power era, while the nautical functionality of the standard boat shoe sole is updated by way of robust, treaded rubber. Rugged suede and leather driving shoes feature sculptural rubber grommet treads and beaded accents, instantly bringing a level of handcrafted sartorial sophistication to laid-back outfitting. The ability to exist parallel to any dominant footwear trend has made the boat shoe and the moccasin frequently revisited silhouettes, both of which continue to find their place in an unexpected variety of wardrobes.
