Sebago white deck shoes

If you ask, Brandish shall deliver. Paul asked recently where to find a white deck shoe, and when I spotted a pair in a shop window at the weekend I made a mental note of it. They’ll set you back $85 from the website, or you can head to your nearest Russell and Bromley, where they’re roughly the same price.

These deck shoes are the real thing; handsewn with rawhide laces and non-corrosive eyelets, they also feature non-slip rubber soles. These babies are perfect should you ever actually step onto a boat at any point this summer.

French Connection navy deck shoe

boat shoe deck french connection.jpgWe’ve said it before, but deck shoes are the best choice for this summer. Flip flops are too scruffy and although canvas shoes are a good staple they’ve become a little ubiquitous.

You might remember the slightly dodgy Office deck shoe I wrote about last week, these deck shoes from French Connection (£50) are much more the kind of thing you should be aiming for.

The navy and weathered black colours are much more modern than fusty brown and look great with jeans and khakis alike. Even better, deck shoes go really well with shorts perfectly straddling the divide between smart and casual. Just don’t go popping the collar of your polo shirt if you don’t want to look like an idiot.

Office brown deck shoe

If you’re going to give deck shoes a punt (LOL! …Sorry) make sure they are navy or an acid bright and check that the vamp is a bit shorter than Henry Conway’s parliamentary expenses.
