Team Sperry Athlete, Photographer, High-Energy Life Addict
Slater Trout, 19, has – what would be considered by most
red-blooded human beings – a “dream job.” He travels the globe
competing in the watersports he loves (stand-up paddle boarding
and surfing) he has legions of coed fans, a massive amount of
respect and success in his discipline. But perhaps the most notable
thing about Slater is his attitude – he’s insanely positive, upbeat and
yes, high energy. He literally hops from place to place. We caught up
with him on a recent trip to New York.
My ideal day in New York involves walking around, exploring and
taking photos. I usually end up getting lost and I love that.
Because I’m on my feet all day, I really need a comfortable shoe and Sperry gives me that comfort.
I like these sneakers because they’re fun. They’re classic
looking, but the pattern makes them interesting to wear.
I live in board shorts and flip flops all day, so when I get a chance to dress up a little,
I really go for it – I’ll throw on a bowtie and suspenders.
