On the hunt for your next staple summer shoe? Look no further. The legendary shoemaker Sebago has announced a collaboration with Drake’s, available now in-store and online.
The collection includes an array of beloved Sebago designs that have been re-vamped with Drake’s classic prep finishes and hand-picked materials to bring a British flair to the iconic New England brand, while staying in touch with the cherished original styles. For Drake’s Creative Director Michael Hill, this partnership hits close to home as he says “In fact, Docksides is the first shoe that I remember wearing to school, which played a significant role in shaping my view on clothing and style. I’ve always loved the silhouette and what it represents. It’s an honor to work with the team at Sebago on a version of our own.”
The Docksides, as seen on Pharrell Williams, Steve McQueen, and students across countless university campuses, are back and better than ever. Featuring embossed co-branding on the insole and contrast hand-stitching, the classic boat shoe is now available in three new colorways that are perfect for a coastal summer: patchwork red, white, and navy leather with leather laces as well as white and navy leather with paracord laces. The launch also includes a brand herringbone cotton baseball cap.
The materials are carefully chosen with both style and endurance in mind according to Hill, who believes the leathers will “age beautifully with time and, hopefully, a bit of exposure to some sun and salt water.” Beyond the shoes, themselves, Sebago’s coastal heritage is highlighted in the gorgeous campaign photographs shot at Maison Premiere, a Brooklyn bar and seafood spot near and dear to the Drake’s team. So, whether you are landlocked or headed for the beach this summer, the Drake’s for Sebago collection has got you covered.
The collaboration is now available to purchase online.
