    Navy Topsiders for now. Actually, they're caked in mud from drunken wandering last weekend. Hopefully I can find some brown Quoddys this summer when I'm not broke.

    Also, does the idea of suede boatshoes bother anyone else?

    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.
