Yuck - I wouldn't.

Not that I usually mind new concepts, but I do think there's something to be said for respecting the original intent of an item.

A boat shoe in suede just seems like an oxymoron. You couldn't actually get it wet, so what's the point?

And in orange suede? That just makes it ugly.

Sorry but those things are hideous. Granted I'm not a particular fan of Boat shoes.

I think boat shoes serve a purpose. Those shoes pictured don't serve that purpose. Plus the construction looks poor.

Varvatos. It looks much better in dark brown- see Onion's pic in S&D.

Personally, suede or not, I'd get them wet- the whole Varvatos shoe look is disheveled decay.

I wouldn't wear these. If I wanted boat shoes I would buy some. These aren't boat shoes. I'm not sure what to call them?

I saw a guy at the mall wearing those last December. I think his name was Klaus or Kloss or something like that. Very nattily dressed, but needed to lose weight.
