Docksides Portland Shoes - Beige
Perfect as a nautical shoe, this durable boat shoe is made from a single piece of heat-tanned leather treated with a rich combination of oils and waxes to give a natural quality of shine and smoothness, and then hand-stitched with the finest craftsmanship. Leather insole, 360° leather lacing system and non-marking non-slip striated rubber outsole to provide a stable grip in all weather conditions. The "Portland" loafers have in their very DNA an innate connection to the city of Portland, one of the largest seaports in New England.

Sebago was founded in 1946 in Westbrook, Maine, by Daniel J. Wellehan. Prior to Sebago, Wellehan owned five shoe stores. So he decided to open his own shoe factory. He became partners with shoe entrepreneurs, William Beaudoin and Joseph Cordeau.
The brand took its name from Sebago Lake, just a few miles from Westbrook. In the language of the Abenaki Indians, Sebago means "elongated body of water."
The first moccasin was the Penny Loafer. It was created the same year it was founded. It was produced in the Abenaki tradition and sewn by hand. Still today it is a top model of the brand. The first boat shoes were produced in 1948, but their patent was sold to Uniroyal.
