The leather goods house first launched a boat shoe in the early ’80s that was available for a limited time. However, this time around, Dooney has packed the classic style with performance and comfort features. The men’s and women’s style evolved from brand founder Peter Dooney’s love of the sea and passion for sailing.
Built on a handsewn moccasin construction, the shoes are made in Portugal and feature siped anti-slip outsoles for traction on a range of surfaces. For enhanced comfort, there are cork-lined, padded-foam footbeds that conform to the foot. Uppers are detailed in full-grain leather with a patina that naturally ages over time.
For your next sailing excursion (or if you just want the look), shop Dooney & Bourke’s new Regatta Boat Shoe (there are seven colorways to choose from), which retails for $135 and is available in Dooney & Bourke stores and dooney.com.
