Established in 1946, Sebago was born from a consumer demand for quality, casual footwear.

The original shoe they made, the Sebago Classic beefroll penny loafer, is made the same way today as it was back then – hand sewn with the finest craftsmanship.


Sebago’s love of classics and tradition stems from a deep-rooted nostalgia for a time when craftsmanship was admired and things were made to last.

With that in mind, their hand-sewn boat shoes combine long lasting materials with smooth design to create refined, simple beauty that won’t fade away.


With rubber slip-resistant soles, rawhide laces and non-corrosive brass eyelets, genuine moccasin construction wraps the foot in a single piece of leather, creating a fit that’s uniquely your own.

Named after a lake in the brand’s home of Maine, New England, Sebago’s local roots led them to their simple philosophy: make shoes for people, for who they are and where they live.


After gaining popularity in their area, Sebago’s emphasis on the importance and reverence of craft led them to gain international attention.

The introduction of the now iconic Docksides in 1970 and its counterpart, the Spinnaker, became the ‘must-have’ footwear for holidaygoers in the South of France.


Constantly expanding, the brand is now sold in over 120 countries worldwide.

This year, their SS17 collection focuses on revelling in life simple, yet rich moments, leaving room for the best people, the best places and the best things to compliment your lifestyle without overpowering it.
