Sperry Boat Oxford
I’ve been searching online for a nice new pair of formal shoes for a while now. I wanted something under a strong quality brand, not some in house Topman rubbish. I also wanted something that is brown, because “an Italian always wears brown shoes, they go with everything”… not that I’m even slightly Italian.
I present to you the Sperry Boat Oxford’s. As the name suggests this is a hybrid of Boat Shoe and Oxford Wingtip, creating a really clean & smart silhouette. Sperry are well established in the formal/casual shoe market, in line with the likes of Sebago and Timberland.
They retail on the official Sperry website at $100, however I managed to snag my pair in the Hanon sale for just £38 (deducting £4 worth of Hanon points that I’ve accumilated). They’re still available in size 7, 8, 8.5, 9, 11 & 12 (I got the last 10’s, muaha!).
