Two Degrees Deck Shoes: On Kickstarter

I recently met Plum Turner who has a mission to create the best deck shoes. As a man who used to sail regularly, both racing and cruising, I happen to like deck shoes. They are leather, comfortable and made for the salt water and hard knocks of a life at sea.

But not all boat shoes are created equal.  When Plum visited to tell me about her Two Degrees shoes, the subject of a Kickstarter campaign finishing tomorrow (link below) I was impressed by what I heard and saw. Considerable care had gone into the design and construction and these are no ordinary deck shoes.


 I asked Plum told to tell me more:
"We’re called Two Degrees and we’ve used the latest materials available and personally visited 78 different suppliers across Europe to create what we believe to be the world’s most comfortable boat shoes. We’re a boat shoe company with a social mission: Every pair purchased protects 1,000 square feet of endangered habitat. We call this Feet for Feet. We’ve partnered with the World Land Trust to bring our Feet for Feet model to life and we’re already protecting habitats in Ecuador, Argentina and Mexico. 

Why our boat shoes are different: 

- They have a seven layer cushioning system with built-in ergonomic support, a concealed airflow system and unique Poron® heel pad to ensure comfort from day one
- Manufactured in Portugal, the shoes are made using European sourced bio-leather (hand stitched), highly breathable anti-microbial OnSteam® and unique recycled soles
- Every pair purchased protects 1,000 square feet of endangered habitat".
I'm delighted to say that, with a day to go, they are fully-funded, but I feel this is an effort that deserves full support and with such well-made shoes on offer at fair prices, I urge you to help them on Kickstarter.
