So, these SeaVees Mariner Boots are … a sneaker, but also a boot. And they’re made from suede … but also waterproof. The point is, these stylish SeaVees sneakers are made for nearly anything as move through late fall and into winter, and that’s a fact. In fact, the navy waterproof suede Mariner Boots are only available via our good friends at Huckberry, and that’s something to be applauded in general. The SeaVees Mariner Boots are inspired by old naval footwear, and it shows when it comes to their durability and functionality. We’ve covered the Mariner Boots here on the blog, but make no mistake, these are another beast entirely. And the great thing is, the SeaVees Mariner Boots run counter to the argument that you need to put your sneakers away just because the weather gets dicey. A gusseted tongue provides extra water resistance, and the use of extra rubber around the bottom of the shoe also provides added grip and traction against chippy winter weather.SHOP: The SeaVees Mariner Boots
It also helps that the SeaVees Mariner Boots look pretty great on their own, regardless of their functionality and tough appeal. Antique brass eyelets pair nicely with technical nylon laces for a bit of crossover style potential — you can certainly wear these like regular high-top sneakers (think a rugged Western denim shirt and slim tan chinos), or you can style the SeaVees Mariner Boots more like, well … actual boots. To me, that means you’re wearing them with tough chore pants, a classic henley and a warm fleece jacket to tackle your list of weekend chores. It’s rare to find a pair of high-top sneakers that actually function like boots, and it’s even more rare to find a pair that’ll stand out stylishly at the bar or a holiday party … or even your office (try ’em with a navy cotton blazer, a white Oxford and the Flint and Tinder Stonewashed Jeans). Again, the point is this: The SeaVees Mariner Boots are nearly unbeatable when it comes to casual style, rugged functionality and business casual potential — that’s all there is to it.
