Sebago Docksides @ Rugged Sole

With street fashion being more influenced by classic American style, it's only natural for boat shoe brands that might normally be overlooked garner some newly received attention. First it was the Sebago Lighthouse and Cool Cats collaboration. Now with Spring slowly creeping up, it's only right that the New England heritage brand inject the streets with the Docksides, a quality shoe that embodies it's legacy and vision.

Air Jordan 6 Premium/ Jordan 6 Rings: Motorsports Edition

Brand Jordan continues to drop heat for both generations. Nostalgic types and old school connoisseurs be on the look out this February for the limited edition release of the Air Jordan 6 Premium edition. Retailing for $175, these 6's deliver the same quality as the Infrared's but in a white/black colorway. Note the zebra-pattern interior of the shoe.

The 6 Rings come in the same colorway, and will be released in March for the same price. Also a limited release, the 6 Rings have a new generation appeal that has made them popular in the last few years.

These versions of the 6's and the 6 Rings were developed for Jordan Motorsports--Brand Jordan's sponsored motor bike team. Jordan Motorsports has been around roughly 5-6 years and has been an instrumental part of the Michael Jordan legacy.

Stay tuned to Rugged Sole for updates.
