Rockport Announces 35th Anniversary DresSports Ahead of London Marathon
With the 2018 London Marathon fast approaching, Boston-based brand Rockport are preparing to launch the highly anticipated DresSports 35th Anniversary Limited Edition. A true icon in the production of dress/sports hybrid footwear technology, the shoe made headlines in 1990 when Rockport’s very own Vice President, Tony Post ran the New York Marathon wearing the product.
Produced with style, comfort and performance in mind, the Rockport DresSports is all about ensuring stability and agility throughout the daily commute. As Rockport say, ‘life truly is a marathon’, and with London 2018 now firmly the horizon, the DresSports aims to provide the ultimate footwear solution in maximizing every second spent on the go.
Ultra-flexible and lightweight, Rockport’s anniversary version of the DresSports features classic brogue detailing atop a white biomechanically designed EVA outsole, complete with a reflective underlay and the brand’s truTech technology for shock absorption. A ‘35’ emblem on the backstay heel of the shoe serves as a subtle nod to the design’s milestone anniversary.
To put it through its paces, ultra-marathoner and photographer Dan Carter took to the streets of the capital wearing the latest edition. The shoe fuses two realms of innovation seamlessly, displaying its unique ability to perform as a sports shoe when a more stylish silhouette is required.
Ideal for the work commute, the Rockport DresSport 35th Anniversary edition is set to go on sale exclusively at John Lewis in May where it’ll be available for £115. Head over to the John Lewis Website to find out more.
