In the Showroom: Rockport

Rockport Spring ’17 collection is making it easy to dress for success.

The brand’s range of dress shoes for men is sprinkled with athleisure influences, from accent color laces to leather oxfords embossed with a mesh-like texture. The embossed treatment is carried into a group of leather chukka boots and brogues. Meanwhile, flexible, shock absorbing insoles and memory foam footbeds ensure all day comfort.

The men’s color palette includes smoky gray, navy and washed tan, however, brown is on the rise for Spring ’17. Rockport’s best-booked shoe for men is a rich brown lace-up—a change of pace from black, which is usually the most popular. On the casual end, Rockport is betting on lightweight leather penny loafers and mocs and burnished leather sneakers.

For women, Rockport’s Total Motion collection offers mid height booties, micro wedge sandals and lace-up shoeties in a neutral palette. Taupe and black styles are embellished with cutouts and shimmery textures for day-to-night dressing.

Brighter colors live in the brand’s casual Cobb Hill collection. The line plays with veg tanned leathers, including natural brown, white, turquoise, coral and green. Cutouts, embossed textures and beaded ornaments add a bohemian theme for spring.
