Modern, Feminine Updates to the Boat Shoe for Spring from TheFind!

If you haven't noticed, oxfords aren't the only menswear-inspired shoe getting the femme treatment this spring! Girly boat shoes started getting popular around this time last year, and the trend doesn't seem to be going out of style any time soon! While I don't normally dig such literal takes on the nautical theme, these fancified boat shoes are hard to dislike! They're like a cute yet comfy mixture of a tennis shoe and a flat, so they're pretty darn versatile, especially when you're looking for something you can slip on and wear when you don't want to result to flip-flops! I adore these ballerina flat inspired boat shoes from Hunter (yes, the same brand that have brought us our new favorite rain boots!), which put a surprisingly dressy spin on the style, while these glitter flats are cute and whimsical if you're not afraid of a little sparkle (plus, they're way cuter than glitter Toms)! For a little height, these boat wedges by BC Footwear give a stylish lift to the classic silhouette, or to embrace the nautical theme head-on, go for some signature blue sailor stripes, courtesy of Steve Madden!
