Late last year our friends at Category 5 launched a Kickstarter campaign around a lineup of boatshoes that added some color to their catalog.  We backed the campaign early, and received our shoes a few months back.  Now, with boatshoe season in full tilt, their Black Helmsman will be in heavy rotation.

Had you told us a year ago that we’d be sporting black boatshoes right now we’d have probably laughed at you.  Somehow between then and now a lot more black and grey has worked it’s way into our wardrobe, and the Helmsman boatshoes are the perfect compliment. Handsewn with waxed white thread, the black pebbled uppers of these shoes looks fantastic next to the stark white non-slip sole.    Though they still relatively new to the world of boatshoes, Category 5 is turning out some fantastic products, and we’re happy to have the Helmsman in our collection.
