In today's world, it makes sense to choose shoes and clothing that are versatile. You want to get the most wear possible out of any item. It's both economically and environmentally smart. Eastland shoes are well-designed for just that function. Let's examine more closely some of their most popular offerings.
The most famous of their shoes is possibly the boat shoe. Originally designed for wearing on wooden boat decks as the outsole wouldn't mar the deck surface, these shoes soon transcended the yachting world and became popular everyday shoes. They typically feature rawhide lacing detail and a moc-stitched toe. Wear them with slacks to work or with shorts to the beach. They are ideal casual shoes.
Loafers, including penny or tassel options, are another hot style. These are elegant enough to be paired with suits or pencil skirts. Yet on the weekend, wear them with your jeans and a warm sweater and you're ready for a relaxing day. Loafers are great at crossing the dress-casual boundary.
Low boots, such as the Chelsea, can be worn anywhere. Women pair them with maxi skirts to great effect while men wear them to work with business suits. The Chelsea design dates back to the early 19th century when it was designed for Queen Victoria. Clearly, she had a good thing going.
Eastland Shoe has long prided itself on quality. Now on its third generation of ownership in the same family, it continues to build upon an already outstanding reputation. Although it is still headquartered in Maine, its shoes are sold all over the world and in every conceivable market.
