Today I stumbled across the custom boat shoe program on Sperry Top-Sider’s website. For $120 you get to choose everything, down to the color of laces and outsole and type of eyelet, and they send them in about three weeks. The software is fast and slick for instant gratification, though you’ll need some design skills for creative satisfaction. I tinkered for a lengthy amount of time and couldn’t come up with anything better than the shoe above, in white and navy with ivory for the toe and heel.
As it’s not hard to find to find boat shoes in various colors (I’ve been wearing a pair of midnight navy with off-white soles and laces the past few years), this seems to make most sense for someone who wants to go for a three-color triple lutz.
Have fun playing with it, just be sure get outside on this holiday weekend. — CC
