An idea-packed lunch Saturday with the illustrious Eli Getson yielded some famous results of creativity, cemented plans, and a future so bright, the use of protective eyewear is a must. Having no plans afterwards, I randomly checked out a Marshall’s location in the ‘burbs. Among the knock off iPod accesories and Polo Club Association gear were a slew of authentic Sperry Topsiders. Still on cloud 9 from the meeting, I went ahead and snagged the navy/white and brown/white colorways. Summer is coming as is the Yacht Party*.
* Yacht party details coming soon.
I certainly hope they brought their boat shoes! Vans would like you to believe these are sneakers, but they certainly LOOK like boat shoes. Momentum just wouldn’t be the same without boat shoes, so consider my obligations fulfilled. To be honest, they were always in the Polo shirt category to me – I know I should own a pair, but I don’t feel like hating myself. Now that I my disdain for Polos has all but vanished, I might pick up a pair of these Vans. The color pops, they’re only $65 (probably cheaper at The Rack), and they are officially “sneakers” so my psyche remains in tact.
$55 at KarmaLoop.
