Boat Shoes for Men: Still in Style?

Boat Shoes for Men: Still in Style? Did we not tell you six years ago that boat shoes will never go out of style?

You see, it’s 2020 and the young people we know who are part of the millennial and the Gen Z generation are discovering the most important virtue of boat shoes, i.e., they’re just damn easy to wear!

Let’s have a bet, shall we? We’d bet a thousand bucks that ten years from now, we’ll be seeing Andrew Garfield — probably the most famous celebrity boat shoes enthusiast — wearing boat shoes to the premieres of his movies.

Boat Shoes for Men: Still in Style (3 January 2014). Are boat shoes still in style? Of course it is! In fact, we here at Famewatcher believe that it will never go out of style because a) they are just too damn easy to wear and men like it simple and easy (you just slip in your feet to your shoes and you are ready to go), b) its one shoe style which you can wear with no socks without looking like a fool, and c) Guvernator Arnold Schwarzenneger wears ’em. Yeah, we believe that any men’s fashion style that’s gotten the Schwarzenneger “blessing” will forever be in style.

But… but… but…, you ask, since when did Arnie became an “arbiter” of men’s fashion? Since he wore his tight Speedos during his bodybuilding days [see Arnold Schwarzenneger Underwear]. Hehehe. Anyhoo, apart from Arnie, other celebrities who are loving them their boat shoes include:

Onscreen rivals but off-screen friends (we think) Tom Felton and Rupert Grint who are seen in the next image below wearing Band of Outsiders Boat Shoes. [You can buy this Band of Outsiders/Sperry collaboration for $175.]

But…, but…, but… Tom and Rupert are appearing in an advert. It does not necessarily mean that they like to wear boat shoes, right?

Well, we do know that Tom Felton is a boat shoes wearer. Check him out wearing a pair of Topman boat shoes (made of 100% genuine leather) to a Comic Con event.
