Boat Shoes...On Belmont Street, Aberdeen
Modern boat shoes were invented in 1935 by Paul Sperry after noticing his
dog's ability to run easily over ice without slipping. Using a knife, he cut siping
into his shoes' soles, inspiring a shoe perfect for boating and a company called
Sperry Top-Sider. Sperry Top-Siders are still a popular brand of boat shoe
today, among many others, including Sebago and Timberland. Boat shoes called
also Deck Shoes are worn today also by a woman as presented on the photo above.
Wearing them it doesn't mean to be super rich and have a boat. They are just icon
shoes like loafers, adapted in normal casual life.
I think that this girl looks absolutely sweet in this flower printed dress, wearing it
together with hoody and boat shoes. It's just a simple look, but very unique.
