I feel like Sperry Seacoast sneakers are a three season essential, from spring straight through to fall. If you live where summers are mild, I think they are essential all year long. They are a timeless style that lets them be worn with so many different clothes. I wear them with shorts, skorts, and any length of pants. They are dressier than regular sneakers, yet can seem like the most casual beach bum shoes when kicking around the beach. They are easy to slip on and off and very comfortable. The coral is a nice, bright fun color without being overly BRIGHT. I can wear and 8 1/2 or a 9. An 8 1/2 is my normal size because my feet are slightly wide. I can even wear an 8 in some shoes. I mostly have the Seacoast in an 8 1/2, which does start out a little snug on the width for me. But I chose that size, because being a canvas shoe they do stretch some and then fit great. The 9 is also fine for me because of the elastic edged tongue.
