One of the best parts of my opening salvo at Sock&Sole was the piece on boat shoes. They sell themselves, especially when they are supported by images of 'Drizzy' Drake, Kanye West and Pharrell Williams sporting Sperry Topsiders or Sebago Docksides, with American Apparel T's looking supafly! Suede in spring, leather in the fall! And there you have it! The boat shoe, Casual Shoe of the Year.
