Luxury fashion house Saint Laurent works in collaboration with New England footwear brand Sebago on the new set of footwear designs. The duo release a new boat shoe design that features bold prints across the upper and textural details. The construction highlights a pony hair effect and takes the classic Docksides by Sebago as the base foundation of the collaboration.
The two design options include one done with zebra stripes and the other with leopard spots to give it a rock n' roll theme. The preppy shoes have a timeless design and feature a branded tab that marks the lateral side of the collar -- it reads "Saint Laurent." The midsoles are debossed with "DOCKSIDES" to round it all out.
