Let’s talk about the characteristics of the suede boat shoes.
The traditional boat shoe came in brown, but today, you can find all kinds of colors such as:
- navy blue;
- and basically any other color under the sun.
Traditionalists stick with brown but personally, I like to mix it up and some fun colors for casual events worn with my shorts.
In terms of leather, usually, these boat shoes or deck shoes are made with a water-repellent finish such as the chromexcel from Horween simply because the original purpose was to use it in a maritime setting.
