Sperry Billfish: A Footwear Identity Crisis
While I am glad to see that boat shoes are currently making a comeback, I find it unfortunate that about 90% of boat shoe-wearing students, both guys and girls, at Clemson have chosen the Sperry Billfish. Is it a boat shoe? Is it a sneaker? Why has everyone in South Carolina chosen this pair? Who knows? What is clear is that it doesn't hold a candle to the Sperry Authentic Original in terms of style.
