The Best Women’s Boat Shoes

Updated on May 29, 2013

Loafers or women’s boat shoes are some of the most timeless and versatile footwear. They come in many charming designs and, as long as women don’t pick anything too outlandish, they can even wear them on formal occasions. They’re primarily called boat shoes because they grip firmly on boat decks and serve as excellent footwear when it comes to walking on wet surfaces. They’re similar in appearance to moccasin shoes but only tougher and more convenient.

Boat shoes typically have leather bodies and rubber soles. The leather body is specially treated to become waterproof while the sole provides excellent traction. Because of this, boat shoes make great companions during rainy weather and wet conditions as they prevent you from slipping and also protect your feet from the damp. Because these shoes are made of leather which is considered as a classy material, you can wear them with confidence with formal get-ups as long as you pair them off carefully and pay attention to mixing and matching rules. These shoes are usually worn without socks to allow the feet to breathe which makes them one of the most low-maintenance and comfortable footwear anytime and anywhere.

When choosing a pair of women’s boat shoes, make sure that they fit comfortably. The top part should be soft enough for your feet and the sole should let you feel its grip on the surface beneath it. Some of the top brands that give you the best boat shoes are Sebago and Sperry. Here are some women’s boat shoes that are combining fashion and excellent functionality.
