Just in time for the best of the summer weather, Rockport has launched their nautical-inspired summer collection of boat shoes featuring Adiprene by Adidas comfort technology. Designed to go from day to night, these shoes, as well as being stylish, also have several features that ensure comfort and durability – two things Rockport has become renowned for.
First of these features is the clever anti-microbial lining that helps reduce moisture and foot odour in the shoe. This means that the classic boat design can be worn with or without socks, depending on where you are and what your style is.
Ideal for slipping on and off when going to the beach, or just for a casual rolled-up chino look, being able to wear them without socks extends the stylish and modern take on the classic style without compromising on comfort.
The leather used for each pair of shoes is also full grain very easy to clean, making them a robust, durable and practical option for holiday travels. The hand-sewn top stitching provides the style with even more personality and character, as well as adding to the strength and durability of these shoes.
Key to a good boat shoe is the sole, and these shoes feature the classic rubber outsole that you would expect from this style. It is designed to provide a strong grip on a variety of surfaces, making them perfect for wearing in slippery conditions like, surprise surprise, on a boat or jetty, but it also is just as practical elsewhere too.
Finally, the most sophisticated feature of these shoes is the Adiprene technology, developed by Adidas, which provides supreme cushioning and incorporates a shock-absorbing heel. This means that the Rockport boat shoes are especially comfortable and truly designed for long-term wear, unlike many other manufactures of this style.
Prices start at £85 and go up to £95, and the range is available from selected retailers and at www.rockportuk.com
