These Affordable Slip-Ons Are a No-Brainer

We've talked about Mark McNairy's New Republic line before. He's taken all the knowledge he's gleaned from making some of the best bench-made shoes money can buy and used it to create this line of quality, cost-effective footwear. The latest release? A pair of modern boat shoes that begin shipping today.

Available in six colors—from a rich navy and gray to more creative "dirty buck" and dusty pink—the updated design features a higher vamp and crepe rubber sole, giving them a cooler, less preppy vibe. They're crafted from suede, with a soft, glove leather lining and the true moccasin construction adds stability and comfort. This all adds up to a shoe that's easy to wear with anything in your closet and that feels great right out of the box. What's more, these handsome slip-ons still cost less than your standard boat shoe.
