The impetus for this popular men's shoe model was provided by none other than a cocker spaniel. Its owner, the American Paul Sperry, was an enthusiastic hobby sailor, but he did not want to rely on the usual sailing shoes to give him a secure foothold on the ship's deck. Inspired by the paw profile of his four-legged companion, Sperry finally developed the boat shoe with its characteristic rubber outsole: revolutionizing water sports fashion from the ground up.

The dark-blue upper leather in soft nubuck is given a more relaxed feel thanks to the stylish, dark-brown side panels, which are also manufactured from the finest calfskin leather. The yellow-brown lace along the entry point and maritime patterned inner lining are particularly eye-catching features.

Boat Shoe

This light, Blake-stitched summer and leisure shoe is known for a leather shoelace threaded around the opening as well as a sturdy rubber sole. Contemporary models also feature a separate insole and lining.

Boat Shoe Last

Boat Shoe Last

A comfortably expansive overall width makes this sporty, elegant last perfect for boat shoes. Notably rounded at the front, this last features a roomy mid-foot area and mid-height instep to ensure a high degree of wearing comfort. Perfect for average and high insteps.

Nubuck

Nubuck

Processed nubuck is a particularly fine type of rough leather, and has short fibres. Taken from the grain side of calf hide, nubuck is velvety, soft, and resistant to dust. It is correspondingly easy to care for—simply brush the leather regularly with a suede brush.

General information about our men's boat shoes

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Delivery
Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

SHOEPASSION - ONE STEP FURTHER

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team

SHOEPASSION.com was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the SHOEPASSION.com site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
