If we only wore shoes literally, we’d be sneaking around the city, blurring gender dress lines, and flip flopping like fish every time we hit the beach. Fortunately, you don’t have to live the life dictated by your choice of footwear. Delivering a pair of shoes that’s perfect for land lubbers despite its title, Sebago Grinder Boat Shoes combine comfortably durable construction and classic style in a shoe for any surface.
Starting with excellent source materials, the upper is made from premium full grain leather, polished and refined for a smooth feel. It is brought together using Strobel stitching, a method of force lasting wherein the upper is sewn to a sock, pulled onto a molding foot, and attached to the sole. The upper is finished by leather rawhide lacing at the tongue and around the edges, giving your shoe a distinct look from every angle.
To make room for as much comfort as style, Sebago inserted an ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) footbed, a dense foam that provides excellent shock absorption. What’s more, it’s far more eco-friendly and biodegradable than most polymers that require chlorine. For the finishing touches to the Sebago Grinder Boat Shoes, the outsole is stitched into the sidewall and features siped rubber, a tread that is often used in tires and provides excellent traction in any conditions. On this drop, you can choose your color between Chocolate Nubuck, Tan, Chocolate Nubuck/Brown, Brown Smooth, and Navy Smooth.
