For those who frequent the beach, it’s probably no surprise that you are looking for a shoe that is comfortable, offers protection, and allows you to stay mobile. If that is the case, there is no better shoe for you than a boat shoe.
Boat shoes (also known as topsiders) are a great beach shoe for multiple reasons. First, they look great. Secondly, they are built to withstand the elements, especially and water. Lastly, they provide great protection for when you are trying to find that ‘perfect spot’ to lay out, or playing a game for beach volleyball on blistering hot sand.
Topsiders have been popular for years. When I was talking to my mom over the phone recently she even took note of their reemergence. She said they have been around since forever (since the 80s) and that she thinks it’s great they are making a comeback. Stylists agree, boat shoes are a great-looking summer shoe and should be in the closest of every person who is fashion conscious.
Another advantage of wearing boat shoes on the beach is their high-quality construction. Many topsiders, especially those from Sperry, come waterproofed from the factory. That protects them from cracking due to moisture over time. Secondly, they rubber, tread-like sole is resilient to heat and makes walking through hot sand a breeze.
Combing both of the aforementioned points, you need something sleek and stylish for when you are in limbo at the beach. Boat shoes are easy to slip on and off, and provide your feet the style and protection they need to stay healthy, and for you to make the most of your relaxing day at the beach.
