"Elegant clambake" seems contradictory, sure, until you see how today's featured couple, Amy and David, fused their upscale style with the rustic appeal of a seafood spread. As their reception proves, a marriage of contrasts often yields the most exciting results, seen again here in the shocking yellow soles and plush navy suede of these Mark McNairy loafers.
The shoes offer grooms a snazzy cocktail party look leading up to a wedding or an easy-to-slip-off footwear option while traveling (to a Hamptons honeymoon, perhaps?). Plus, McNairy's design even channels a bit of the dapper New England vibe brought out by David and Amy's "corporate and crunchy, exotic and unpretentious" wedding style.
