Introducing: The DresSports 35th Anniversary Dress Shoe

DP35-Blog-Header

Introduced in 1983, Rockport DresSports® were the first dress silhouettes engineered with athletic technology- offering lightness, cushioning, and support for your daily professional ‘marathon’ lifestyle. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, we’ve released the limited-edition DresSports 2 FAST dress shoe, a sleek wingtip-athletic hybrid that continues the DresSports tradition of combining sporty features with boardroom-appropriate benefits.

Featuring truTECH® and EVA footbeds for impact absorption, these wingtips are so comfortable you could run a marathon in them. So we did. In markets around the world, Rockport employees and fans have marked the franchise’s 35th anniversary by running races – long and short – in their limited-edition DresSports. One Rockport staffer took on this year’s stormy Boston Marathon and chronicled his journey here,  here,  here and here.

Flexible and featherweight, the DresSports 2 Fast Marathon reveals its professional and sporty upbringing on the surface and in the details. The black wingtip features a full grain dress leather upper; a white biomechanically designed, injected EVA outsole with a silver stripe; classic broguing perf details atop a silver, reflective underlay; and Rockport’s proprietary truTECH technology for shock absorption. The finishing touch is a fine mold ‘35’ on the backstay heel of the shoe, a nod to the anniversary.
