The new collections harken back to Sebago’s heritage, but are executed for today’s consumer in handcrafted, comfortable and premium leathers. Men can expect to see Sebago’s new Legacy penny loafer in a selection of subtle but stand-out colours, like red and navy, in matte or oiled waxy leathers. Women’s styles include updates to the signature Plaza silhouette in luscious Italian suedes including pink, soft grey and taupe, as well as the classic black ,cordo and brown oiled leather.

Responding to the growing trend towards ultra-lightweight products and the athleisure category, this new collection meets the needs of an active lifestyle for both men and women.
Inspired by the brand’s iconic Docksides® boat shoe, the Litesides Collection reinterprets the infamous silhouette in an execution that is 30% lighter than the authentic Docksides®.
Available in a range of soft leathers, featuring an anatomical, cushioned footbed with padded heel cup and channel-siped sole with non-marking rubber for added traction. Colours available for men range between a brighter red or blue, alongside classic neutrals such as navy, grey and brown oiled waxy leather.
