I know. I’m like two years or something too late. But what the hell is with hipsters wearing boat shoes? Is Vampire Weekend to blame? I spotted the above pair outside the Rock and Roll Hotel on Tuesday for the No Age show. They weren’t the only boat shoes in attendance. Is it ironic? Is it just stoopid? Looks like I’m not the only one questioning this footwear choice.
