    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?

    what do you use to keep the soles white (or at least the sides)? a bleach pen? my soles are beginning to turn yellow.

    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.
