The boat shoe, hand crafted in Maine, has been a corner stone of mens wear for over 50 years. Our 2 eye boat shoe is made to be the most comfortable you will ever wear. Layers of the premium leather provide supreme cushioning and comfort. The lasted shoe is then handsewn and little-way stitched through the siped deck sole providing a durable, surface gripping outsole that has become one of the most traditional methods used in footwear today. This entire process is done step by step by the same individual. You cannot get any more "hand made" than this.
Each stitch is sewn by a craftsmen or women with over 20 years experience making footwear. True moccasin construction allows a shoe to wrap, shape, and mold to your foot and will only get more and more out of it the longer you have and wear them. The vamp and kicker are hand sewn by awl and needle, not prepunched like 90% of other boat shoes you find. This allows the shoe to be crafted onto the last, and the handsewer uses their skill to adjust and fit the shape, so that each shoe starts out a bit different, and ready to take the shape of your foot.
