We have now entered with both feet into the coldest season of the year, and it is precisely the feet that we want to keep warm during the winter, protecting them from rain, wind and frostbite. The boat shoe, atimeless clothingclassic, proves to be the perfect footwear against the elements, to be worn not only in summer but also in winter.
5 BOAT SHOES YOU WEAR IN THE CITY IN WINTER
Cold: I Do Not Fear You / Velasca Balòss
The boat shoe for winter exists, here it is. Made of full-grain calfskin leather, which is tanned and brushed to achieve the lived-in effect, Velasca’s Balòss is a faithful companion during the colder season. The super Vibram lug rubber sole does not affect the comfort of the fit, which is very comfortable thanks to the tubular construction of the upper and insole that wrap around the sole of the foot like a glove.
Patented Sole / Geox Moccasin Moner 2fit
The inventors of the “shoe that breathes” produce a moccasin perfect for boating made of leather and rubber. Thanks to Geox ‘s patented micropores, the foot does not overheat and stays dry even in very hot weather. This suede loafer in Navy Blue is a 2fit model that offers a double fit so you are always comfortable. In fact, the insole is removable, both for hygienic reasons and for a quick and practical fit.
Never Giving Up on You / Timberland Authentic 3-Eye
Timberland makes its classic boat shoe from full-grain Better Leather. This fine leather comes from a tannery rated Silver for its commitment to responsible management of energy, water and waste during the production process. Perfect year-round, their EVA insole allows for a comfortable fit, cushioning even the bumps often encountered when walking around town.
