    Got my blue Sperry x BoO shoes the other day and love them. They look great and are ridiculously comfortable.

    $25 is a great deal. I'm the only person rocking the Navy Topsider that isn't some weird half sneaker thing and a lot of people say I have nice shoes.

    ^ Don't get me wrong the navy is nice, I've seen it get more and more popular where I live. I think it's def the "in" color right now.

    how does everyone usually lace theirs? crossed with no ends exposed like lots of pictures or just a regular knot?

    The J Crew ones came crossed but normally just a regular knot.

    Well, Oi Polloi is based out of the UK, but they ship to the US.

    Here's a link to their Yuketen section: http://www.oipolloi.com/brands/Yuketen-100.html

    Thanks for that link. I forgot to mention that I am located in the US and it seems extremely silly to me to buy a show that is made in the US, in the UK in GBP and have it sent back. There must be a possibility to buy them directly in the US.

    Picked these up a couple days ago:

    Wasn't really planning on getting blue topsiders as I think they're starting to get a little played out, but they were only $25 so I couldn't resist.


    Where'd you find them for $25? And for the guy that asked I'll try to get some pictures of the grey brick soon.

    Been wearing my couple pairs of boat shoes for a bit since it got warm. Of course, no socks, and thought I would do something to neutralize the smell (it was not too bad, but there). I got some of that Dr Scholl's odour powder stuff, threw it in the shoes, and it dried them out so much the leather insole cracked.

    Why are the boat shoes so damn slippery? Walking on hot pavement felt like ice. Thought since its used to walk around the boat, where there's a lot of water, it shouldn't be this slippery.

    Get the laces wet and then knot them, I love seeing noobs walk around with the big, chunky, up in the air, stiff rawhide nonsense. Boat shoes that never get wet?

    Ive got a pair of a/o and docksides although my a/o's are a year older. I can say they fit exactly the same
