Thanks to Luxist for the pointer. For the classy boater with discriminating taste, have performance with non-slip razor siped soles and make your legs look good! "Pierre Hardy wants women to take preppy chic to a whole new level. While the traditional boat shoe provides comfort and an effortlessly classic flair, Hardy's High-Heeled Boat Shoes ($1109)offers casual sexiness and unique appeal.
Styled in black pebbled leather and decorated with contrasting white stitching, brown leather laces, and a golden buckle, these leather heelsmaintain their classic aura but with a modern update. Hardy's High-Heeled Boat Shoes are just shy of four inches, so you'll get height, but hopefully the rugged rubber sole will counterbalance the pressure on the balls of your feet.
Pair with loose fitting shorts and a linen button down shirt for a casual, yet polished look."
