I promised I'd show you what I took home from Sebago, and here it is! It's rather predictable of me really, but I fell in love with the Felucca Lace design (P3,999) when I saw it on the shop window waaay before Sebago invited me to drop by. I really wanted to get the Yellow one, but unfortunately their smallest available size, 6, is rather large on me. So I got the Denim Blue version in size 5.
I regretted it at first. Size five felt too small; it was an effort to walk in them. However, I knew that Sebago shoes loosened and softened over time (they're 100% leather), so I just broke them in by walking short distances before finally wearing them out. Now they're super comfortable and hug my feet nicely!
Did I ever tell you why Sebago boat shoes are awesome? Once I went out on a stormy day wearing my Docksides. The streets were flooded as I walked to Robinsons Galleria so my feet and shoes were soaked like mad! I was so worried that the leather will be ruined!
As I walked around the mall though, I noticed that the water drained out quickly from the shoes so there was no squishiness. Within ten minutes the inside already felt dry; by 30 minutes, the shoes were almost dry. And the leather didn't get ruined because they're boat shoes and, well, designed to get wet. ;) The Sebago sales people advised me to clean it by rinsing it in soapy water. Works like a charm.
If you ever catch me on casual days, I'll probably be wearing these.
