All Motion Comfort™ • This Dockers®-exclusive technology combines soft cushioning with extra support.
Boat Shoe • A nautical classic, the boat shoe was designed for no-slip wear on deck. Now it’s an instantly recognisable slip-on style with a unique shape and laces all around.
Brogue Detailing • A combination of perforation and pinking (in other words, artfully placed holes and zig-zag edges). You’ll find brogue detailing on all sorts of formal shoes.
Cap Toe • An extra bit of leather on the toe that goes straight across.
Comfort Zone Technology • Combining a cushioned sponge EVA heel, a Latex footbed, and a Fusion Footbed, this Dockers® exclusive provides an extra layer of dual-density cushioning. These features can be found in both men’s dress shoes and casual footwear.
Cupsole • A special kind of sole construction that’s most commonly found in sneakers. It protects your foot via a sole that “cups” it.
Derby • A menswear classic that’s versatile enough for any occasion. This style of shoes is usually made with black or tan leather, and has a visible lace-up panel (unlike its slightly more formal cousin, the Oxford).
EVA • Similar to rubber, but more sustainable and recyclable. It’s a common material found in soles that provides cushioning and stays flexible under most conditions.
Eyelets • The holes in the shoe where the laces are threaded through.
Flyweight Construction • Dockers® Flyweight shoes include lightweight flexible construction with a Fusion Footbed and Memory Foam, all of which results in very comfortable footwear.
Fusion Footbed • This Dockers®-exclusive footbed adds an extra layer of cushioning to keep you comfortable throughout your day.
Insole • Where the bottom of the foot meets the top of the inner shoe. This is where the comfortable-making magic happens.
Loafer • A popular slip-on shoe that’s great for business casual. These shoes perfectly toe the line between a sharp look and a feeling of leisure.
Monk Strap • A formal shoe whose laces or elastic closures are covered by a wide strip of leather that buckles at the side. They look great with both men’s dress pants or laidback khakis.
NeverWet® • An exclusive coating that gives shoes high levels of water- and stain-resistance. This technology means you won’t have to worry about dirtying your favourite pair of shoes again.
Tongue • The part of the shoe that’s between the lace closure. It’s named “tongue” because it often sticks out like one.
Outsole • Where the bottom of the shoe meets the ground, outsoles are all about traction.
Oxford • A formalwear staple, this sleek shoe is usually made in black or brown leather without visible eyelets and tied so that the laces are minimal. An all-time classic that never goes out of style.
Upper • Simply put, the upper part of the shoe that’s not the sole.
Wingtip • Wingtip shoes features a toe cap that looks sort of like a “W”. It usually also has brogue detailing for extra style points.
