Water shoes are getting increasingly more fashionable thanks to designs like the Lanvin Scuba High Top. The Lanvin Scuba High Top is made with neoprene, the waterproof material that is more likely to be seen on wetsuits than shoes.

That's right, the entire upper of the Lanvin Scuba High Top is covered in neoprene. The material isn't too popular with apparel makers, but Lanvin is apparently willing to give it a shot. I like what they have done here; the muted styling and neoprene upper go perfectly together. This will no doubt cause conversation and attract wandering eyes, which is a rare thing for shoes that don't look ridiculous. Ride the neoprene wave today before it breaks and check out this scuba suit-inspired shoe today.
