Category 5 Boat Shoes: Style, Incredible Comfort, Attention to Detail
Category 5 was founded in 2010 by a group of 5 friends between Miami and Cape Cod, MA. Although they all loved boat shoes, they hated the long break-in time and subsequent short lifespan of most boat shoes on the market. The friends set out to create a more durable boat shoe that required less break-in time.
After two years of sampling, the first production run of Category 5 Boat Shoes debuted in 2010. We were lucky enough to meet one of the owners in 2014. We tried the shoes ourselves and were immediately impressed by the softness of the leather. After literally months of wearing the same pair, we've continued to be impressed by the durability of these shoes. We worked with Category 5 to offer a selection of their shoes, customized with a subtly imprinted Nantucket Island shape in the leather near the laces.If you love boat shoes, Category 5 Boat Shoes are a required addition to your collection.
