Sebago, the legendary New England shoemaker, has collaborated with Drake’s.
Beginning with the Docksides, the boat shoe that helped to define 20th century university campus culture — worn by Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, Pharrell Williams and countless other individuals of style and influence — the Drake’s for SebagoDockside is available in both navy and white leather with paracord laces, and patchwork navy, red and white leather with leather laces. Other special details include contrast hand-stitching, white eyelets, a green and white side tab, inspired by the awning outside of Drake’s shops, and embossed co-branding on the shoe’s insole.
“I have a deep affinity for Sebago,” says Drake’s Creative Director Michael Hill. “In fact, the Dockside is the first shoe that I remember wearing to school, which played a significant role in shaping my view on clothing and style. I’ve always loved the silhouette and what it represents. It’s an honour to work with the team at Sebago on a version of our own.” “I didn’t want to mess with the magic too much, as it’s such a timeless style,” adds Hill. “We specifically selected the leathers as I believe they will age beautifully with time and, hopefully, a bit of exposure to some sun and salt water.”
The Sebago x Drake’s collection is now available in-store and online.
TheChicGeek says, “Drake’s has helped to reinvent modern men’s preppy style. Sebago is one of the America’s original preppy brands, so the two coming together will get the preppy purists pumped. The boat shoe continues to be a classic masculine summer shoe style.”
