It's perfectly fine to wear boat shoes even if you've a) never been on a boat, b) don't live anywhere near water or c) were permanently scarred by Jaws and would rather not deal with the ocean, thankyouverymuch! (Anyone with us on that? No? oh...ok.) If you're going to get yourself a pair of boat shoes, we recommend seeking out a pair with feminine touches so you don't look like you raided your dad's closet - for example, this Joan & David Rosalyn ($135). It's available in oh-so-nautical blue and red.
