American label Sebago have released a beautiful range of shoes for AW13 that combines quality craftsmanship, contemporary design and New England heritage. The collection exudes effortless style, with classic silhouettes constructed from premium leathers in a rich autumnal palette.
The name Sebago has long been synonymous with the ever-stylish boat shoe, and this season the brand has given the summer staple a suede makeover. Teaming with one of America’s oldest tanneries, Horween, the iconic Dockside silhouette has been given a new injection of life. The new design features Sebago’s signature Dockside Boat Sole and a genuine hand-sewn moccasin construction, which involves wrapping a single piece of suede around the whole foot to create a unique fit.
The Stockton boot is a highlight of the range and perfect for autumn/winter, especially with our unpredictable British climate. The sturdy boot is priced at £164, constructed from full grain leather and wool panels, and features speed lacing hooks, taslan laces and corrosive-resistant eyelets.
Not only does the boot look great but it’s also supremely comfortable to wear thanks to its full-length leather sock lining and TPU elastomer cushion in the heel. This is a style that manages to combine utility with fashion, creating a pair of boots that not only look the part but keep you fully protected from the elements. The tan/green two-tone colour way is a stylish alternative to traditional black/brown versions and would look great with some rolled up jeans.
For those who like the finer things in life, look no further than Sebago’s premium Made in Maine collection. Every pair of shoes within this line is painstakingly hand-crafted in high quality leather using techniques that are over a century old. FashionBeans wholeheartedly recommends the navy leather Westbrook Classic penny loafer, which would make a versatile addition to any capsule wardrobe and can be worn year-round.
Sebago have really stepped up for AW13, producing a diverse and beautiful collection that is underpinned by their expert craftsmanship and 65 years of heritage. The styles offer casual and smart options for every occasion and taste, and at a great price point to boot.
