Rockport introduced the limited edition Morgan Coast

Rockport, an American brand of men's and women's shoes, introduced the second edition of the legendary Morgan Coast series. The line includes two models created on the basis of the original 1994 collection of the year, with which Rockport became the official partner of the Whitbread Round the World regatta (later renamed the Volvo Ocean Race).

Participants in the famous Whitbread Round the World regatta could be sure that Rockport shoes would not let them down during the exhausting round-the-world competition, which lasted nine months. Today, after eighteen years, the brand’s design team has been able to recreate the style of the legendary Morgan Coast. In search of natural canvas, previously used on yachts, they visited many marine schools in Boston and its environs. To create 200 unique pairs, about 16 and M2 colored vintage fabric were needed.

In the production of models used environmentally friendly technologies and materials, including EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), which provides maximum comfort when walking. Each pair has a non-slip rubber sole, is protected from getting wet, and at the same time is equipped with a breathable mesh fabric with a “breathing” effect, which is especially important when playing sports.


Models of the limited edition Morgan Coast are presented in two colors. The line features striking finishes and details inspired by the yacht theme, such as:
metal rings for traditional circular lace-up and more durable rubber sole, characteristic for yacht shoes;

zigzag stitch resembling the seams of a real sail;

shoelaces imitating a nautical rope;

metal lacing fasteners inspired by the sail device.

The updated limited edition Morgan Coast symbolizes Rockport's continued interest in sports initiatives, including yachting and sailing regattas. “We had a difficult task to present a new edition of the legendary collection that meets the trends of the spring-summer season of the 2012 year,” said Dave Pompel, head of the Rockport men's shoe production unit. “These models are of particular importance to Rockport: they have become the embodiment of the brand’s philosophy, applying innovative design and advanced technologies to create the most comfortable shoes.”

The updated collection was released in a limited edition - only 200 copies will appear in the world and only 15 of them will be presented in Russia. Each Morgan Coast pair has an individual number and will become a real find for collectors. In Russia, the limited edition Morgan Coast will be exclusively presented in the Rockport concept store in the SEC Evropeisky from March 15 to 2012. The price will be 20 000 rubles per pair.
