The boat shoe: a summertime staple that hasn’t evolved since dinosaurs roamed the land. But this season the DC Shoes Trace TX splashes ol’ faithful with a bucket of color, letting you stand out during your next barbecue.

Once known for its oversized skate shoes, DC Shoes took a page from grown-up America, blending the breathability and durability of a slim canvas upper with a shock-absorbing 6.5-millimeter EVA footbed. Translation: This shoe can take the drop from a double set just as well as the demands of a game of horseshoes.  

Sure, there’s a vulcanized rubber outsole for grip, but the real story? The colors. Fourteen choices means you can get two weeks’ worth of picnics, ice cream socials, and Sunday afternoons on the lake and never wear the same shoe twice.
