Product Review: Rockport Dialed-In Plain Toe Dress Shoe
With spring just around the corner, Bullz-Eye had the opportunity to test some new offerings from the folks at Rockport.com, and first up was the all-new and stylish Dialed-In Plain Toe dress shoe for men. Rockport has blended style and comfort into one with the Dialed-In Plain Toe for 2013, allowing you to take a streamlined approach to classic fashion. This men’s lace-up shoe boasts a full grain leather upper with traditional stitching accents at the almond-toe front for rich detail and a four-eye lace closure that lets you adjust for the perfect fit. Underfoot, an adiPRENE by adidas cushion protects the heel with every step. The Rockport Dialed-In Plain Toe oxford is finished with a shock-absorbing EVA sole to add secure traction to your stylish stride. We found these Rockports to be very light and comfortable with classical good looks.
Whether you are wearing your favorite suit or going with business casual, the new Rockport Dialed-In Plain Toe dress shoe will elevate your style points. You can check them out and purchase online at Rockport.com to step up your look!
Limited Edition Morgan Coast boat shoe from Rockport Review
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.
Rockport DresSports truWALK Wingtip Review
Rockport is in a full court press with new and stylisg releases for the the fall 2011. New on the Rockport launch list are the Rockport “DresSports truWALK Wingtip” men’s shoes.
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.
Rockport Day-to-Night Wingtips review
Looking ahead to fall what styles will catch our eye? What are the latest trends in shoes? Rockport clued Bullz-Eye in on a few of their star releases and our feet thanked them for the gesture. We first tested the Rockport “D2N Wingtip” in which are Suede wingtips in winter smoke colorway and let me tell you my friends these are some very sharp shoes. They will be released in July 2011 and they are eye grabbing footwear.
Comfort is right on target with leather lining that provides moisture absorption and abrasion resistance. The premium suede is easy to clean and the leather socklining provides durable moisture absorption and sonforms to the shape of your foot. These Day to Night Wintips are some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve worn in many a moons. I found out part of the reason is that the footbed incorporates Adidas Adiprene highly shock absorbent cushioning which protects the heel at impact. As far as the classic look is concerned the Italian leather and rubber outsole provides durability and helps protect the product life. Looking good in the box is one thing but with Rockport quality the D2N Wingtips will provide plenty of mileage for those who appreciate the best for your feet.
These kicks from Rockport are Fall 2011 styles and will be available for retail at Rockport retail stores and Rockport.com!
