Product Description

Sebago crafts a timeless look with rawhide laces and a durable traction sole.

Sebago represents authentic products and timeless design. Their original, hand-sewn Docksides boat shoe and Classic Beefroll penny loafer haven't changed since they first crafted them decades ago. Sebago is a celebration of everything New England…where life in, on or around the waters is a geographical unavoidability, where they are nautical in their traditions but deliver a future of performance and ingenuity. Their shoes are about performance-not just the technical kind, but the way a shoe behaves in its right environment, whether it be on boats or city streets. Each classic Sebago design is carefully designed to perform at its best.

    Size: 10.5 2E USColor: Sand Suede
    My first pair of boat shoes were Sebago Docksides in Sand Shag sometime way back in the 80s. I wore them for many years until they were worn out. Unfortunately I could not find replacements in the local stores, so I have had many other brands and styles of boat shoes in between, including Levi's and Sperry. None of the others lived up to my original Docksides.

    Now with online shopping I can get Docksides again in Sand Suede. (Pretty much the same as the old Sand Shag.) No extra seams that serve no purpose, no silly two tone colors, no cheap gummy eraser looking soles, no man made materials in the uppers to make your feet sweat, just fine quality throughout. If you've tried some other brands of boat shoes and weren't happy with them, I highly recommend you try the Docksides.

    I expected to receive something average but I've been wearing these regularly for quite a while now and they're doing great. No signs of poor stitching or other construction anywhere on the shoe.

    They fit great and feel comfortable. I can't say that about a whole lot of shoes, but I can say that about these.
    The bottom is rubber, so Keep looking if you're searching for shoes with a different bottom. To me it doesn't matter.

    As you can see in the images I took of them, they're made of very nice material and look better than in the product image provided.

    I would definitely buy these again.

    I think I'm only on my third pair of these wonderful shoes in 30 years. They wear like iron and it's the shoe I will wear most of the time. I own several pairs of dress shoes for the office, but when I'm off-the-clock, my Docksiders are what I wear.

    I originally ordered these shoes in size 9-W, but they did not fit properly so I re-ordered them in 9-1/2 W and they fit perfectly. Good looking shoes, but there is no comfort system in them whatsoever (or at least that I can tell). I have owned Sebago's, Sperry's, Rockport's, and Timberland deck shoes in the past of various styles, so I know what a good deck shoe looks and feels like. The best pair I have ever bought (in fact I have them on now) are a pair of RL Chaps that I purchased at Kohl's. I have had them for about 3 years now and other than cleaning the inside and the outside of them I have had no problems. I will only wear the Sebago's to casual events and not where there is any work to be done.

    I'm a habitual wearer of boat shoes during the warmer months. I've been a fan of Timberland's offerings for years, because they last and the leather is super soft. Friends swear by Sebagos, though, so I thought I'd give them a try.

    The shoes fit true-to-size, and the color is spot on. If you're getting a pair because you need a certain color, you won't be disappointed.

    HOWEVER, unlike Timberland's supple leather, the leather here has an almost plastic feel to it. This is especially apparent on the tongue, which is just a one-ply piece of leather; whereas on other shoes, it's actually 'doubled over' (meaning the side facing your foot gets to touch the softer leather.

    Having said that, the price on these was right, and they don't feel uncomfortable. I'll update when I find out how the leather 'wears' as the season goes on. If the leather scratches easily and doesn't survive well I'd say it's worth it upgrading to a more expensive shoe.

    At first the shoes take a couple of times to break in but they get comfortable. They look good and i get compliments on how nice and clean they look.

    I've been a long-time Sperry Topsider wearer. When I purchased my first pair 1977, they were made in New England and the quality was fantastic. Now they are made in China; it seems to me that the quality has gone down, while the price has gone up.

    I decided to give Sebagos a try, so I ordered a pair of Sebago Spinnakers last spring. They were stiff at first, but quickly became comfortable, and the "W" width was wide enough for my feet. They have become my favorite casual shoe this summer.

    My old brown Sperry Topsiders needed replacing, so I ordered these Sebago Docksides instead, and in the same size/width as the Spinnakers. I was disappointed at first, because they seemed slightly tighter and less comfortable than the Spinnakers. I was almost ready to send them back, but decided to wear them a few hours a day inside the house. Within a few days, they began to "loosen up" and become more comfortable and are now a "keeper." I deducted one star because I still think that they are slightly narrow, in spite of being labeled as "Wide." Why do so many shoe manufacturers insist on making narrow Wide shoes? Probably to save on leather and costs.

    The quality and workmanship is superior to Sperry, in my opinion. The leather is much thicker and has a uniform smooth finish - no weird wavy spots or ripples in the leather like on my last pair of Sperrys. The stitching is also straight and even. The sole is slightly thicker, and a little firmer than Sperrys. They're not made in USA, but at least in the Western Hemisphere - the Dominican Republic - not China.

    This Sebago is overrated. I paid $85. The inner sole is unacceptable at this price point. Imagine something akin to plastic where the front half of your feet will sit on. These shoes are also squeaky out of the box. I loosened the laces but the problem persisted. No thanks. I really wanted to like these shoes due to the overwhelming positive reviews but I was disappointed. Don't waste your time.
