Spring
Shoe Week

Presenting the new classics—fresh takes on foolproof warm weather footwear.

The Boat Shoe

Call it monochromatic. Black on black. The murdered out footwear choice for the irreverent prep set. Most boat shoes can be found with the signature white sole, and while you can find brown and red brick soles as well, this spring and summer, the all-black version offers a smart alternative. And thankfully, they seem to be having a moment. Wear them in place of your black dress shoes and enjoy the comfort and laid back style.
