Capsule Trade Show Women: Sperry Top-Sider Spring/Summer 2013

Crocodile skin

Woven Boat Shoes


A couple of months ago I attended the spring/summer 2013 Capsule show. I stopped by the Sperry Topsider stand. I decided to release the pictures now instead of September because, I felt it would more appropriate now. This post is for my female readers. We're in January which means we're a couple of months away from spring and summer.

   Sperry Topsider stands out from their competitors by offering the boat shoe sihouette in various patterns and prints. Other brands offer boat shoes in just an array of colors. Sperry Topsider does both setting themselves apart. For example, staying away from the traditional brown and beige color-ways, Sperry had pastels that would go perfect with any Lacoste, Vineyard Vines polo or a Lilly's Pulitzer dress. If you look closely at the first two pictures, you will notice the texture of the leather which resembles to crocodile skin. The addition of colored soles will encourage you to think of your wardrobe since they make a bold statement. Colored soles are a fairly recent trend which was first seen in heels and oxfords. In more simple terms colored soles just make the shoe appeal more lively, and sprightly. Patent leather boat shoes are always great for dressier occasions. For the girls that are tired of solid colors, Sperry Topsider also has you covered with intricate patterns like animal print (which was very popular in 2012 and still going strong). The woven boat shoes were neck-breaking; which is why they're my favorite because woven shoes reminded me of warm weather.
   I can't just leave the party just for boat shoes. There's was canvas sneakers. I really like the Espadrilles ("I definitely didn't expect to see that") which are classic summer footwear. Penny Loafers as well were added, which are a great option for prepsters that need to attend more formal occasions. A great looking Penny Loafer because it has the sole of a Sperry Topsider boat shoe which means comfort.
    To sum it up the line overall was crispy like the title of my blog. Very solid line because Sperry-Topsider knows there's plenty boat shoes brands out there, and by offering the boat shoe in various designs like woven, animal print, and colored soles. They also added timeless silhouettes Espadrilles, Canvas sneakers and Penny Loafers which allows them to cater to a different crowd.Some of these models are now available while others are not. Well  Stay Crispy Ladies!!!
