    I have the pair in the OP, and I'm looking forward to getting the navy suede Sperry x J. Crew topsiders also. I like. I like.

    It's much too cold in Ohio to rock them now, but as soon as it hits 50-60, onto my feet they go.

    I believe they're Ralph Lauren, no? I don't know if those are available anywhere.

    Yep, RL makes them. I got them last year, but they should have some this season too.

    Second. I never break my topsiders out until I can wear them comfortably without socks (read: temp is high enough). A friend of mine, however wears them throughout the winter [​IMG]

    I try not to say this more than a few times a year, so as not to be tedious: the notion of wearing shoes without socks really freaks me out. Your foot just rubs around on the inside, without a soft, comfortable cotton covering. It's like... I don't know, like wearing a denim jacket without a shirt under it or something.

    Different strokes, man. I think that wearing topsiders with socks, esp. when you're wearing shorts, just looks foolish. I don't find it uncomfortable at all [​IMG]

    Original brown leather topsiders, and BoO Black topsiders.

    Considering replacing the laces with safety pins in the originals.

    which boat shoes look the best with shorts? I think the lower/sleeker the profile, the better they will probably look with shorts, but what do you guys think are the most versatile colors for wearing in the summer?
