Boat shoes are back in a big way this year, and they hardly come bigger than boat shoes supremoes, Sperry. To celebrate their new campaign #sperrymyway, the brand has teamed up with Karlmond Tang, the founder of top menswear blog Mr. Boy, to take the premium signature siped-sole shoes out to a fresh forward thinking fashion level.

Believe it or not Sperry was born off the back of founder, Paul Sperry, watching his dog effortlessly move across ice on a cold day in Connecticut. Couple this up with the slippery deck on those rough seas that almost cost Paul his life. This inspired him to carve those signature grooves – much like those on his dog’s paws – into the bottom of the rubber sole. So there you have it, the modern day boat shoe was born.

As we said, boat shoes really are back this year, and if you’re wondering what to wear them with if you haven’t got that yacht down in the marina – do you go shoes with no socks? Do you invest in a pair of chinos? Don’t you worry; Sperry and Karlmond Tang have teamed up to dish out some styling essentials on how to wear your Sperry’s.

Boat shoes don’t come much more classic and hardwearing than the Sperry A/O Eye Whip Stitch. Karlmond shows us that you don’t need sunny climes to get the boat shoes out. Matched up with a strong overcoat and straight legged jean turned up to the ankle showing off a coloured sock. Ideal.

The lightweight canvas navy and white style gives off those summer vibes of just sitting outside sipping a beverage, denim jacket on with a pair of navy chinos. Coincidently here’s Mr.Boy’s founder doing exactly that.
