The only reason this is titled “Parkesbait” is because I’m too proud to admit I really want them for myself. Besides, Parkes has the Topsiders vibe that I cannot successfully pull off, mostly because I’m generally “unsuccessful” in life. One good pair of white deck shoes with baseball stitching might change all that, mind you.

You can order these bad boys (or the “Center Fielder” & “First Baseman” models, above are the “Fastball”) from Allen Edmonds if you have $115 bones awaiting a good splurge. Don’t worry, you can customize them with a logo if you want.
