I had a pair of boat shoes.I had them in every color from black to white.I miss those shoes they should come back in style.

I have a pair I got from Sperry Topsiders. They were $54 but worth every penny. I even have the ends of the ties done just like they were back in the 80's

Aren't these called Docksiders? I recall Boat shoes as being plain canvas shoes with no laces you just slid your foot into.

Funny, I had these but I actually needed them to work on the boat!

I agree with Dorene, I remember the "boaters" as being slip ons, I still have a pair of blue ones which now have holes in the soles. - June 15, 2009 - Report this comment

These were popular where I lived in the early 80s. I had a few pairs of Sperry Topsider ones, but there were lots of imitations. This was another style that would have been unthinkable to wear in the 70s, when we thought of shoes like this as part of the backward 1950s.
