Even if the only deck you'll be on this summer is in the back of your friends house, a nice pair of boat shoes should find their way into your wardrobe sooner than later. Yep, we're still co-signing the boat shoe. If you've been paying attention, you'd have noticed a bunch of designers dropping their own renditions of the classic silhouette that up until a couple years ago was known solely as the footwear of the prep set.

From the OG Sperry Top-Sider to the more casual stylings of Vans and Band of Outsiders, Complex picked out the 10 Best Boat Shoes of the season. Just because you won't be on a yacht this summer, doesn't mean you can't act as if. Word to Boiler Room.
