Rock da Boat: Via Spiga Galea Sneaker

For my FIRST (with many more to come) Sneaker Feature, I gleefully present Via Spiga's Galea Slip-On SneakerVia Spiga, a brand named after Milan's most sought after fashion districts, prides itself on its ability to bring Italy's la moda to each of our doorsteps without even having to go through customs!

Consider these boat shoes the yachts of footwear!!! Adding both comfort and style to any nautical gear, these bad boys will have you practically drowning in the 7 stylish seas! And thanks to my mother dear, in like t-minus 3 days, my family and I will be setting sail on these 7 seas as we embark on our first ever Carnival Cruise visiting the Grand Cayman Islands and Mayan Calendar-ed Cozumel, Mexico! :D

It's gonna be a 4 Fun Filled Day excursion seeing everything from the ruins to the barracuda babies, Nemo, Dory, and so much more! As you all can tell, with THIS much going on, maintaining comfort reigns supreme, and what better place to start with comfort than your soles!!!

Slaying with a nautical yet punkish vibe, these sneakers sport an edgy essence that can be either casually cool or tapered a notch if need be. For example, rocking these with a blue-hued all-denim look while accessorizing with a military beret would be the perfect July 4th Parade attire. Making a fashion statement in these while pairing them with a grunge inspired tee and kohl colored jeans for a night out in a hipster district of your choice is always an option as well! Because of their stylish versatility, the combinations are pretty much endless! ;)

As far as detailing goes, VS doesn't disappoint! Catching a glimpse of the side and frontal profiles will satisfy your taste for trends; however, once you feast your eyes on the rear featuring the alphabetic accent winking at ya, your desire for design will officially be quenched. Secondly, because of the perforated embellishments, you'll be sure to side-step a sweat since the perforation will keep your feet nice and ventilated! Lastly, walking in stride will be your comfiest experience yet due to VS always making their shoes with the finest and softest leather ever! (...believe me, I tried on an almost identical pair by Michael Kors. They were cute and all, but the leather was so taut and unyielding, I don't even think breaking them in would suffice... :| )
