That being said, I don't think I was ever a boat shoes girl but I recently saw it featured in several Youtubers' videos and they looked quite stylish in a way, yet extremely comfortable looking. The brand Sperry Top-Sider is the first and original company to start the whole "boat shoes" thing and they can be quite pricey. They run usually in the $89.95 range. I bought mine from Nordstrom.
I bought two with a plan to return one. I eventually decided on the "Angelfish" boat shoes in Rose Gold. It's cute and the metallic is perfect for summer, and since it's a warmer metallic, I think it'll be fine in the cooler seasons as well. Also, the Rose Gold color is an "exclusive" color that may remain as a permanent sell or be a limited edition.

When I first tried it on, the fit was too good to be true. The other shoe from Sperry I tried on was the Platinum original boat shoe and I found it made my feet look LONG. Advice: they say to go 1/2 size down because it has a slightly larger fit. I'm originally a 7 but went for a 6.5 and it fits perfectly! The one I decided on looks really cute and matches pretty much all casual and semi-casual outfits!
