With the weather becoming absolutely glorious in England what better item of footwear is there for those lazy summer days than the Sebago Dockside? This unisex shoe has stood the test of time and hasn’t been out of fashion since it was first launched in the 1940’s.
What sets the Sebago Dockside apart?
Quite simply it’s the quality of materials and attention to detail along with that timeless styling that makes this shoe so very special. The shoe can be worn on almost any occasion. There has even been a black patent leather version in previous incarnations for black tie events. But in our opinion it is the unusual feature of the Sebago Dockside in that it seems to improve as it ages and weathers. It’s a thoroughly tough shoe and we have many a customer who will love the same pair for 10 years or more before they finally need replacing.
Another very positive feature of the Dockside is that very little aftercare is required. The leathers used are so good that owners rarely use any leather feeds such as creams or polishes and yet the uppers just go on and on. Although Docksides are designed to get thoroughly wet in both fresh and sea water there is one crucial rule: never let damp Docksides near a heat source such as a radiator when drying. Instead let the shoes dry naturally in a well ventilated room, or outdoors.
