Is it just us, or do the words "boat shoes" usually conjure images of clunky, styleless slip-ons, and the khaki shorts and nautical-themed sweatshirts that usually accompany them? Well, after some thorough market research, we can safely say that there's a new boat shoe in town for spring. And, it's got style for days. We've searched out eight solid pairs that'll look just as rad on the streets as they do on the waxed deck of a yacht. Trust: We're talking ombre, colorblocked, and metallic styles that go way beyond the broken-down babies your dad wears in the Outer Banks. They may just be our favorite flats for spring.
