does anybody know of some boat shoes like these (APCs from a couple of seasons ago)?

I'm looking for something that doesn't look too clunky and doesn't have too much paneling or contrast stitching. Just nice and simple like the ones above, monotone with a white sole, and preferably something that doesnt rape my wallet

what's a good versatile color for boat shoes that'll work with different tops/pants/jeans in a strictly casual sense? I've bought a pair on impulse in the past and it didn't really cut it.

Right now I'm debating between a new pair of sperrys, tb's, or sebagos. Quoddys are sick, but I need something for beaters.

one of these maybe...

I'm trying to decide on a pair of sperry's - should I just get regular brown/brown or should I go w/ navy/white. They're just gonna be paired with jeans, and while navy can give me a more "fashionable" (whatever that means) look, brown just works a whole lot more - makes sense, yea? I need advice.

The oatmeal and brown ones give a more casual, down home kinda feel if you know what i mean. I know what you're saying with the blue ones as you could wear them with a button up and cropped/rolled up pants and still look kinda dressy and not fratty like you probably would with the browns. I know your size is hard to find, but i got my navys on ebay for like $30 last summer. Depends on the looks you feel you'll wear most and if you're cool with how the browns will look.

I like the colors on those.

I think I'll start w/ the browns and eventually buy myself a pair of the navy's or something more interesting. If the colors were as nice as the shoes pictured above, then I'd be more inclined, but I doubt it.

Danassa is just a portuguese shoe brand, I think other japanese stores carry them so there's a chance that they're made in larger sizes (can't say about the possible excluse Journal Standard x Danassa ones). I tried finding somewhere else carrying Danassa shoes but for whatever reason they only appear to be stocked by Japanese stores.
