    I don't think you are too young to wear them. I remember when I was back in uni, there was a huge movement that wore Sperrys, shorts and shirts to class. Looked pretty Douchy, but could be worse - like a Guido.

    I got a pair of leather burgundy(they look real rich) Tims that I wear with dark blue jeans. They have thick leather and seem to be good quality. My favorite pair of shoes.

    All colors all ages imo, especially if your 30. I got the dark brown timberlands, so much middle age dad as it can be, and Im 27, going on 28...

    Super, I think those are the ones I have aswell... The soles are a bit thin though.

    I think the dark brown and the navy originals are the only ones that really work.

    I never understood boat shoes. They're loafers for boating. Do any of you own boats?

    Good point. I own a couple of pea coats but I've never been in the navy, too. Also some desert boots, and I never go to deserts.

    I may need to rethink my entire wardrobe.

    I like boat shoes. Just please spend a bit of extra money and get something better than sperrys. Find any southern college student and if they are in a frat or sorority, there is a 95% chance they wear sperrys at least 3 days a week. Just get yourselves north face fleece jacket for the fall and you'll be family.

    No but my dad does. Although I would wear them regardless.
