Men everywhere — it’s time to retire the dirty, worn-out tennies and punch up your winter footwear selection with something more dapper. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my tennis shoes as much as the next guy; however, you’re not in high school anymore and crashing parties on frat row. You’ve grown up, and so should your collection of shoes with Sebago.
When you’re headed to the ballgame with the guys or a date night with your favorite gal, a chukka boot or relaxed oxford is an exceptional alternative without going over-the-top fancy.
Take a look at the Rutland Chelsea above, for example. This model boot features a contemporary design that can be worn anywhere, anytime. Easy pull-on construction eliminates the need to re-lace, and dual goring side panels allow for much-needed breathability. With color options in brown and black, this boot pairs easily with dark jeans and colored denim for a standout look.
The Collier Chukka provides the same versatile design as the Chelsea, but with modified characteristics. Going throwback, this chukka features a lace-up design with a fashion-forward suede upper and leather lining. Navy and brown are your color options here, but I suggest the former as your new go-to staple.
Just because it’s winter doesn't mean it’s cold outside. I’m looking at you, people in the Deep South and coastal states. You’re probably not in need of new boots, so let’s outfit you with something more weather appropriate.
If you’re out strutting the boardwalk or setting sail on your yacht, a sophisticated, well-designed boat shoe may be up your alley. Take your pick with a full grain leather or textile upper with contrast slipping and hand-sewn eyelets. Comfort comes free with a padded tongue, cushioned footbed and nonslip rubber sole. With several colors and styles available, you’ll be able to pair with your favorite shorts or swim trunks no problem.
