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.

What is the appeal of boat shoes? They’re simple, comfortable and convenient; they can be slipped on and off with ease, worn with or without socks (go no socks), and they pair well with chino’s, jeans and shorts.
Right out of the box, I was impressed with the smooth, soft nu-buck exterior. The nap is ever so slight with a velvet touch and the texture can be appreciated both visually and physically. The construction is especially solid with the Docksides being flexible and close to the ground which presents an interesting dichotomy; while I wouldn’t go on hikes with them or unusually long walking day trips, they are very relaxed and non-restrictive compared to Sperry’s, which tend to be stiffer boat shoes. So what does that mean? Great for casual and boating use, not so great for walking the length of Manhattan.
The upper and interior linings are made from heavy-duty leather, with brass eyelets for the rawhide laces which are suitably thick to prevent breaking but not so thick to prevent easy lacing. The outsoles are rubber (compared to man-made soles which are made from cheaper plastic). Rubber outsoles are non-marking and slip-resistant.
Usually reserved for spring and summer use, the shoes should last for quite a many years, depending on levels of abuse. If you’re a landlubber, these can easily go a decade. The design is not unnecessarily garish so these bad boys will never date themselves in the long run.
Better arch support would have made these a 5 but keep in mind, that's rare for boat shoes.
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.
Over the last six or seven years, I've had three pairs of Topsiders. The first pair lasted five years and they were great shoes. The second pair lasted less than two; decent shoes, but less comfortable and certainly less durable. The third pair lasted for a summer; they were uncomfortably and shoddily built. So after the last of the Sperrys failed, I searched around for a replacement brand at a less-than-$100 pricepoint, and of course Sebago was what I came across first.
They're built of much sturdier, thicker leather. And, unlike Sperrys, these will require a break in period. But after the leather has some creases and had suppled up, they're golden. After they conform to your foot, they're a pleasure to wear.
I realize that both Sperry and Sebago are owned by footwear giant Wolverine, but it's obvious that the current manufacturing processes is still very different between the two sub-brands. I'll report back if there are any durabilty issues, but these things seem solid, and I'm looking forward to a few years with them before I get another pair.
