Well Booted !

Written by Tom Handley Posted on January 10, 2013

There is nothing like an American Classic, Sebago. Classic can also be done with a twist.  The Osmore Boot.  In many ways, this is a true classic, with even more of a twist.

Featuring full grain waterproof leather uppers with waxy  leather and plaid wool panels, the Osmore’s stitch detailing brings it all together with leather rawhide laces and durable cement construction. Leather sock linings and midsoles cradle your feet in comfort, and the Vibram® rubber lug soles provide traction and support. So whether you’re heading to a rustic day at work, enjoying the weekend, or out shoveling snow, the Osmore has it covered.

“Often thought of as a ‘summer’ brand, we’ve broken out of this category with the Autumn/Winter Collection. The new innovative and expanded line remains anchored in our commitment to top quality, but delivers a more modern, sophisticated product, which is relevant for consumers irrespective of their lifestyles” stated Gary Malamet, Sebago’s Group VP and General Manager.

The Sebago-Moc Company was founded in 1946 by three New England natives: Daniel J. Wellehan, Sr., William Beaudoin and Joseph Cordeau. Their first shoe, the hand-sewn penny loafer, was styled after the popular Indian moccasins and pioneered what would become the company’s patented welt construction. Two years after the initial founding, Sebago-Moc would sell its breakthrough leather boat shoe to Uniroyal. Now part of Wolverine WorldWide Inc., based in Rockford, Michigan, the Osmore Boot is still made in Maine.

Sebago has taken inspiration from its deep rooted history in New England style of fashionable, yet functional footwear, to create collections to tell a story to its consumer bringing the brand to life. In addition, through exclusive collaborations, Sebago is also developing footwear with another American heritage notable, Filson.  Combining these two iconic American heritage notables, the brand continues to put itself on the pulse of today’s style savvy man.  Sold globally, in over 180 countries, Sebago is a classic with a twist.
