Pity the designer trying to come up with something truly “new” in sailing apparel. But with its Latitude 90 footwear line, Norway’s venerable Helly Hansen has come up with what looks like a winner. The shoes’ full-grain leather uppers and excellent “Storm Grip” rubber soles make them as functional offshore as on the dock. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, the shoes come in either nautical white or tan and black for those who want to look cool out clubbing when they’ve finished sailing.
$100, Helly Hansen.
