It’s On Sales: Warm-Weather Shoes

Bloomingdale’s is having their Friends & Family Sale right now, where you can get 20% off almost all items with code FRIENDS. It’s worth looking over their Polo Ralph Lauren, Billy Reid, Barbour and other sections, but I thought I’d point out two somewhat cheap warm-weather casual shoe options. 

This pair of boat shoes from Sperry Top-Sider comes to $68 with the discount (down from $85). I bought a pair of these several years ago and they lasted me about two summers of constant, near-daily wear. The sole is pretty much destroyed at this point at the heel, but it has yet to come unstitched and the leather laces haven’t broken. I’ve been pretty pleased with the value I extracted from them. 

And I would also check out the Tretorn Nylite, now $52 down from $65. I bought a pair last year on clearance in white and wore them this weekend during the warmer weather — sockless, of course. The cushioning is insanely comfortable and the shoe is very light to wear. They look great with casual chinos and a polo or rugby. 

Sale ends Sunday, April 7.
