I’m on a Boat, in these streets.


Fashion is all about trends.  What’s hot now, what’s going to be the cool thing next season and who’s going to bootleg it like some mark ass tricks.  However footwear, at least for guys, doesn’t revolve too much around trends.  Occasionally guys pick up a new brand or style of shoe for their closet, but if you’re anything like me, your footwear is usually consistent.

Ninety-Nine percent of the time I step out of the house I’m rocking sneakers and most of the guys I know are the same way.  Why is this the case?  Well they’re comfortable, light and easy to maneuver in because never know when you have to dip on someone.  With all that said, I’ve discovered the latest footwear trend for men and I’m jumping on the boat (wordplay is bananas).  You may be asking yourself, “what can be so hot in the streets right now?” and let me tell you, boat shoes son. All day!

I know it’s a little weird, I wasn’t down with the cause at first either, but they’re comfortable, light, easy on the feet and with some nice jeans, they look dope.  Now don’t start sending in hate mail quite yet, give it some time, look around at stores or on the world wide web, because boat shoes are all over right now.  Timberland has already introduced the Build Your Own Boat Shoe program on their website, however, it is currently only available for British residents. **   Try to even type boat shoes on Zappos.com and watch how many shoes come back matching that fly ass keyword.


I’ll wait…….I can understand if you’re still not on the same wavelength as me, they ARE boat shoes, but you have to understand this is a trend, some stay and some are gone before you know it (see DipSet).  So if you can see it in your heart to take it easy on boat shoes, they’re just trying to make it in a world dominated by sneakers and boots, giving us a fresh new look for our feet.  But if you are down for the boat shoes cause, get the searching before this trend is long gone.
