The boat shoe is a practical, yet fashionable silhouette that has been a staple in footwear since the early 1930s. Designed by Paul Sperry with a siped-outsole after he saw how easily his dog ran over ice and snow, the boat shoe can be found anywhere from the deck of a ship to the runway. Outdoor footwear manufacturer Timberland’s offering, the Classic 2-Eye is now available in an assortment of flavors at Eastbay.
Timberland’s Classic 2-Eye Boat Shoe is made with rich premium leathers, suedes and nubuck that repel water on contact. Hand-sewn moccasin construction and a 360-degree rawhide lacing system allow for a customized fit. Cushioning is provided by a three-quarter-length EVA footbed that is cupped to cradle the foot. The midsole is cemented to the outsole to ensure that no stitching is exposed to wear through. Below sits a non-marking, siped rubber outsole that enhances traction on wet surfaces.
The Timberland Classic 2-Eye is currently available to pre-order in six different looks. Choose from a mixture of full-grain leather-, suede- and nubuck-based styles. Colors range from classic Timberland wheat to golden rod yellow. Pre-Order: Timberland Classic 2-Eye Boat Shoe
