We’re usually really impressed when guys pull off a shoe-related fashion statement. Based on our few and far-between experiences of the men’s footwear retail scene, the vast majority of non-sneaker options for guys are incredibly frightening and occasionally truly repulsive. This is especially true in the summer. Leather sandals? Flip-flops? Weird Eurotrash pointy business shoes? Ew! Add to that the fact that most men have ridiculously high standards for shoe comfort and extremely weak comprehension of the idea that you must suffer to be beautiful, and you are left with the small satisfaction of the choice between black and white Converse. That’s why we are so pleased to see so many boys - not just preppies and hipster, but "normal" guys too - have converted to deck shoes. They’re like the boy version of ballet flats! Keep up the good work, guys. --ALISON COOL
