Whether you're a stranger to sailing or consider yourself nautical by nature, hold your breath. Labels including Diesel and John Varvatos have recently joined Sperry in outfitting the yacht club and company in summer-essential boat shoes. With rows and rows set to invade your favorite stores this season, your "shore" thing, in terms of a go-to sneaker alternative, has been crowded by options. Just be ready, and go in knowing that you'll be browsing classic and boot shapes, as well as colors ranging from typical neutrals to prints and pastels. Leave knowing that the old rules still apply (topsiders and socks don't mix, ever), and that you're about to appear schoonerbound—even if you cruise in an SUV.
