Handmade bison leather boat shoes are all the rage for the Engineered Garments FW 2012 collection.

The New York company likes to breathe new life into tried-and-true classic footwear. This year, the brand wanted to makeover the nautical boat shoe and give it an earthy attitude. The leather shoes are modeled after the highly appreciated moccasin and include a white rubber sole. There is a tweed-like rope that wraps around the boat shoe and appears on the tongue in a neatly tied bow. Crisp and clean white stitching surrounds the leather, which pairs nicely with the bottom of the shoe.

The Engineered Garments FW 2012 collection of footwear is limited-edition, therefore don't hesitate to get your hands on a pair of these sophisticated red, blue or brown boat shoes. Stats for Revamped Nautical Footwear Trending: Older & Mild
