I was thinking about picking up a Sperry top sider as well, but I had heard they are not very comfortable to wear.

Haven't looked into alternatives since then.

if you don't mind going online this might fit what you're looking for; Harrys of London has a new line of shoes they call Henleys its a boat shoe but wears like a driving shoe

a comfort minded boat shoe basically

That, to me, just looks like a driving loafer with extra holes and leather laces :/ . If you want a loafer, get a loafer. If you want a boat shoe, get a boat shoe. I think either a proper boat shoe or driving loafer looks better than that frankenshoe.

Try the Sperry's on. They aren't any more uncomfortable than say a regular plim or chukka.

what really defines a boat shoe though is its function (repels water / doesn't streak the deck / etc)

you can even get chukka boat shoes
