Sperry, Sperry Good For Your Feet

Sperry Venetian Navigator $80

If you happen to get stuck in the rain for three days in Emerald Isle, NC, you will try to find stuff to do. You might go see a movie, and, when you exit, look across the way and find H's Shoes (252-354-6011), where you can buy a pair of Sperry Navigators.

These are more comfortable cousins of the Geox shoe, whose soles are on the thin side. This is not your grandfather's Sperry moc, although, he would probably like them, since they feel like slippers and look good enough to wear just about anywhere you'd really want to be going. He would want you to have a pair, I'm sure.

If you do not plan on going to Emerald Isle, too bad, but you or a person who loves to buy things for you (as in my own case), can still get some here; they also come in black:

Ed Note: You can waterproof these with various kinds of shoe wax. Timberland has a good one. And, if you worry about mocs getting worn or scuffed, you can shine them up yourself with the one and only Meltonian Shoe Cream:  Also available at Occhicone's Fine Leather Goods, 42 N. Main St. Port Chester, NY and other places who know what's best for shoes.
