Rockport will be releasing the Limited Edition Morgan Coast boat shoe on Thursday, March 1st via their site (

Since the original Morgan Coast shoe from the brand released in 1994, as the official boat shoe of the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race (later known as the Volvo Ocean Race), the new limited edition release places the focal scope on Rockport's rich sailing history. Equipped with two colorways (white and navy), the Morgan Coast shoe includes many design cues and distinctive features that can be found on traditional sailing boats:

° Oversized grommets at the sides, with reinforced rubber gaskets

° Zig zag stitching on the upper, reminscent of stitching found on actual sails

° Shoe laces that replicate the look of nautical rope

° Ingenious hardware at the collar of the shoes which mimic pulley systems used in sailing

Each of the special shoe will be individually numbered (from 1 to 200) and will be packaged in shoe bags made of sailcloth and canvas. Expect to drop $200.00 on the pair when they arrive March 1st.
