Boat shoes were originally design for sailors and sea lovers. Their construction is similar to a loafer's, except that boat shoes have laces that goes around the shoes, to provide extra support on the ankle. The leather of these waterproof shoes undergoes special treatments to ensure the longevity of the pair and its resistance to seawater. The outsoles are made with anti-slip rubber, that was designed to preserve the bridge of boats, hence the name "Docksides".
