    Thanks, sounds like they'll fit one way or another.

    Yeah I normally wear a 7 but it was a little tight with the insert. I took it out and it was perfect!

    Hopefully they run small, because I sized up like I do with most sneakers (12.5 to 13).

    All of the previous posts have great options. I own a pair of AE Porter's in suede and they are really nice! I've also had my eye on a pair of Rancourt's for awhile now. Another option for you is LL Bean, who I've always found to have good quality stuff and good customer service. I picked up a pair of their Casco Bay Boat Mocs and was pleasantly surprised, although the leather isn't quite as nice as AE, Rancourt, and other brands. They have a variety of options for under $100, and sometimes have 25% off sales:
    Casco bay $69-$89 https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/4611...6690-GN3&csp=s
    Camp Moc $99 https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/8926...6690-GN3&csp=s
    Blucher Moc $99 https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/7648...6690-GN3&csp=s
    Sale Camp Moc $49 https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/1058...=Briar/Natural

    I have a pair of Seavees that i really like. They have a few different styles that you can choose from. I also found them to have some more support than a vans or similar type shoe.

    Your wish list is very broad and can cover anything from canvas sneakers to all types of loafers. Like Sperry canvas sneakers, vans authentic originals, todds drivers, swims loafers, Hudson Havana woven loafers. All decent options.

    It sounds to me like you are really just looking for a better pair of Sperry's. I tried to go that route for a few years and never found anything which matched the looks, quality, and price anywhere close. It's like a three legged diagram and ever other brand you choose two, yet somehow Sperry hit all three. As a result I just went back to sperry's and am very happy.

    Gentlemen,

    Thank you for the suggestions. Most of these I've never heard of it. Front runners at the moment are the AE Maritime and the Rancourt Gilman Camp Mocs.

    I also actually had a pair of the Sperry's that [MENTION=13934]hockeysc23[/MENTION] mentioned. I bought them on a trip when I had somehow failed to pack my boat shoes. Because of the situation, I had to go with what was available and size down. Great looking shoes, but the pair I had was a bad fit, so they were donated shortly after the trip. It might not a bad idea to pick up another pair to ride out the rest of summer and then maybe see if the price drops a bit on those pricey Rancourts.

    Thanks again!

    Take a look at Herring shoes--see if you like anything there. I'm very happy with both pairs of shoes I have from them:

    On the pricer end but Rancourt makes some nice camp and ranger mocs. The natural color is pretty close to that Eastland Yarmouth mocs you liked.

    The more casual shoes that I'm wearing with shorts right now include the Born Ocean (super comfy!) and the AE Porter Oxford in canvas.

    I got a pair like these in brown leather from Sperry about a year or two ago. I am a fan. Nice simple look. Can work for jeans or shorts. Relatively comfortable and I believe I got them for around 25.
