Based in the seaside city of Freeport, Eastland has been crafting timeless yet stylish shoes and boots since the mid-‘50s. Drawing from the state’s long-standing tradition of moccasin-style footwear, the family-run operation — currently helmed by Jim Klein, with the help of his sons Jordan and Joshua — makes a full line of camp mocs, boat shoes, chukka boots, and more. The Made in Maine collection takes things a step further, featuring classic styles hand-sewn in the brand’s home state from premium leathers sourced from high-end suppliers like Chicago’s Horween tannery.

In case you were wondering, you definitely do not need to be on a boat to rock a pair of boat shoes. Given how comfortable and classically stylish they are, we’re hard pressed to think of any place — except perhaps for a wedding — where they don’t work swimmingly. Unless, of course, that wedding is on a boat.
