I'm not going to TD, but this is what Sperry's were coming up as on for my size with the 20% off shoe code on Amazon (and yes, I just checked)
FYI, they are only showing up on Amazon at the same price (after 20% coupon) for certain sizes. Nordstrom has all of their available sizes at this price, plus they have free returns…Amazon may have free returns on shoes too however.
Boat shoes are comfortable and casual. You can wear them to back yard barbecue that maybe flip flops or sneakers may not be appropriate at. I wear mine to work sometimes too. I have a pair of timberland that I got at DSW about 2 years ago and they probably smell funky (use baby powder) but are good to throw on when I am going to a graduation, engagement, birthday that I can't get away with sneakers at. This deal isn't bad but try famous footwear or dsw if you have them in the area, they tend to have coupons and carry Sperry.
When I was a kid in the seventies, frat guys were known more for penny loafers. Top-siders were considered too casual for them. When they graduated, they became poorly dressed, fat businessmen, who continued wearing loafers with suits. That ruined loafers for me and I can't stand them for this reason today. But most of the people I've known who wore top-siders were average working stiffs, although that might be different today.
i wonder why frat guys all started wearing these? the only reason they wear them now is because they want to look fratty.
As I said above, I've never considered top-siders to be a frat guy shoe. I'm in my mid-forties, so it may be different today, but there was a big difference between top-siders and penny loafers when I was young.
Another thing is that frat guys wear whatever GQ and fashion mags tell them to wear. All they have to do is use the code word "preppy" and frat guys are buying them up. The funny thing is that I see them call things preppy today that were not considered preppy when I was in college, but they act as if it always were. Nowadays, many retailers categorize almost everything they sell as preppy.
