Any Thoughts?



From Sperry, coming in June.

To my eye the product of a bad marriage. Is June the new kickoff to fall, or is the color unfortunate?

I'm willing to listen though.

Sometimes two attractive parents can produce a funny looking kid. These might be good for regatta awards dinners, forestry service director luncheons, or the rare squash-court judgments which require actually walking on to the court. Change up the laces, and they'll have a better chance.

Don't. Read Yankee Whisky and then ignore his suggestion regarding replacing the laces. Just don't do it. Just say no.

[psssst Yankee Whiskey is wearing a GORGEOUS new suit today, I wish I had one just like it.] Toad, I like these shoes.

It looks like a very non-sperry upper landed on sperry soles with sperry laces. I'm not a fan.

They're odd. Not good odd, just...odd.

I think it's a mash up of things Sperry had laying around. Could've been ok, but they're wide of the mark.

Most of us here are too old for it, but suppose they changed the laces and color, would that help? It could be a great going back to school shoe.

Dockside bowling?

Curling shoes?

I think they're menswear-wearing girl shoes. Katharine Hepburn would wear these shoes with winter white flannels and a camel turtleneck.
