There are some shoes that command attention, and from the time I first tried on Rockport‘s new Parker Hill Moc shoes, they screamed style! You can keep a low profile look with the youthful Parker Hill Moc. With its hand-burnished, dip-dyed, full-grain leather upper, this men’s oxford teams up handsomely with your favorite chinos or denim; seaming details, including a split toe seam and understated moccasin toe, add rich detail. Bolstered by an adiPRENE by adidas dense foam pad to protect on heel strike, the polyurethane footbed is designed to manage moisture as it cushions. There are plenty of color choices to choose from (we tested the rocksand & red combo, which is pictured above) and can be found online at Zappos. The Rockport Parker Hill Moc Oxford is finished with rubber inserts in the sole for added shock absorption and enhanced traction.
The Parker Hill Moc Oxford is priced around $150.00, which is a bargain for the style and quality you literally walk away with. I can’t remember the last pair of shoes I wore that commanded so much attention and looked as good on me.
With warmer weather arriving, it’s time for boating season and having a great time outdoors. If you appreciate both style and comfort in your activities, check out the all new Clearview 2 Moc Low from www.rockport.com. Bottom line is these shoes are hot and you can wear them with just about any get-up.
The Clearview collection has found a way to make classy kicks street legal. Inside the trendsetting exterior is adiPRENE by adidas cushioning to absorb shock at the heel. EVA combined with rubber pads creates one of the lightest shoes in their range, but doesn’t sacrifice the comfort you come to expect from a Rockport shoe. The Clearview 2 collection is a contemporary collection of cup-soled dress sneakers with a retro feel, available in one-eye, chukka, lace-up and wingtip styles, which boasts a surprisingly lightweight silhouette based on the unique sole that features adidas technology. The Clearview 2 Mocs are already one of my favorite pair of shoes!

Rockport knows how to stay in front when it comes to designer shoes, and the new Business Lite Bikefront keep that spirit alive and well. We tested a pair in black and found that they looked great with a nice suit or fresh pair of jeans. The comfort level is absolutely through the roof! Some of the reasons for that comfortable feel is the padded collar and tongue for comfort, full grain leather that is soft, supple and flexible, ETC moisture wicking lining to help keep feet dry and easy to clean, and breathable polyurethane cushioning for moisture absorbency and odor resistance. The EVA provides lightweight shock absorption to reduce foot and leg fatigue and that’s a relief for all guys no matter what’s in the plans when you lace up a pair of shoes. With the holidays fast approaching, do right by yourself and look and feel your best by checking out these new stylish Business Lite Bikefront shoes at Nordstrom.com for approximately $125.
Rockport has been expanding its reach and continues to innovate and modernize its footwear collections, and the new truWALKzero T-Toe Sport Review will expand their customer base starting today. The T-Toe is one of the most lightweight shoes that Rockport has ever developed and you get the sense of floating at times when walking or exercising in them. Our test shoes were black and orange with uppers that are made of a combination of synthetic/textile mesh that wicks away moisture and enhances breathability. The shoes are also extremely flexible and the Lightweight EVA cushioning in the footbed conforms to the shape of the foot for a personalized fit.
I spent considerable time in the T-Toe Sports and felt they pretty much looked good with whatever I chose to wear, and that’s a major plus for any style shoe! The answer to the comfort side of these shoes is the truWALK Architecture that provides a natural full range of motion, from shock absorption at heel strike (adidas adiPRENE®) to forefoot flexibility during push off (adidas adiPRENE®+) for a responsive, springy, energized stride. And your feet will thank you for it! Sometimes you have to see things to believe them, so check out the launch video below.
The truWALKzero T-Toe Sport for men is a sleek, low profile, lace-up sneaker with leather/mesh uppers available in black/charcoal. The truWALKzeroWingtip is a dressier low profile, lace-up sneaker for men with wingtip detailing, available in black/charcoal and dark brown/orange. All the styles include contrasting soles for an added color pop. We really like these new entries from Rockport, so check them out here. truWALKzero footwear have suggested retail values between $120 and $140, and can be found at Rockport retail stores worldwide and select mid-tier retailers, as well as through Rockport.com beginning right now!
Whether you are into sailing or just appreciate cool style in what you wear everyday check out the just released on March 1st Limited Edition Morgan Coast boat shoe from Rockport. These trendsetters or collectibles are limited to only 200 pairs that will be individually numbered. The original Morgan Coast shoe from Rockport was released in 1994 as the official boat shoe of the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race (later known as the Volvo Ocean Race). This new limited edition release hearkens back to Rockport’s rich sailing history, where the company’s shoes have been the casual and technical shoe of choice for many professional sailors and boating enthusiasts. We’re not quite into boating season yet in Northeast Ohio but I wore my test pair of Limited Edition Morgan Coast boat shoe in white from Rockport and I must say they are extremely comfortable and provide plenty of ankle support. The Rockport design team scoured sailing schools in the New England area to find the perfect vintage sail (approximately 170 square feet) and repurposed as fabric and material for 200 limited edition pairs.
The limited edition styles include two colorways of the Morgan Coast shoe in white and navy, and these shoes include many design cues and distinctive features that could be found on traditional sailing boats with Oversized grommets at the sides, with reinforced rubber gaskets, Zig zag stitching on the upper, reminiscent of stitching found on actual sails, Shoe laces that replicate the look of nautical rope and Ingenious hardware at the collar of the shoes which mimic pulley systems used in sailing. Bottom line is not only are these very sharp and unique shoes but the technology that Rockport put into these limited edition kicks is top of the line. Go to Rockport.com to learn more.
We had the pleasure of testing a pair of bitter chocolate suede DresSports wing tip’s featuring Rockport’s proprietary truWALK technology. truWalk architecture provides a natural full range of foot motion from shock absorption at heel strike to forefoot flexibility during push off. That translates into some of the most comfortable shoes you ever put on for either work or leisure. This is also accomplished with the Adidas geofit anatomically shaped collar and heel padding which provides comfortable, supportive fit combined with an EVA outsole that provides lightweight shock absorption for reducing foot and leg fatigue. The DresSports certainly don’t look like high tech shoes as the styling is conservative and modern but under the hood the latest technology is working for you to keep your feet in great shape.
Rockport also incorporated into the DresSports Wingtips a Polyurethane footbed that provides durable cushioning to reduce localized foot pressure. These are some of the “smartest” shoes we’ve tested and they are just hitting the market so check out you local Rockport retail stores or if you want to take foot comfort to the next level.
