Joshua Kissi : This moment has to be one of the most pivotal for myself and Travis, providing our readers with actual tangible products to partake in our extensible journey ahead. We’re constantly inundated with questions pertaining to the start-up of our very own line, but with the self-realization that everything takes time and effort we choose to take gradual steps into the process. For some of our newer readers who haven’t heard of the Nexus Project below is a excerpt from the original post.
A dream for anyone that is a little more “enthusiastic than usual” about style or fashion would be to have their own branded product. While everyone here was stateside experiencing the brutal the winter, I was able to take a trip out to the Dominican Republic along with six influential bloggers to work on a unique opportunity called the Nexus Project. Personally unaware of the amount of strenuous work that goes into designing and selecting certain leathers, it was an experience of a lifetime to happen upon. - excerpt from Original Sebago Nexus Project 06/9/2010

Just in time for transition in seasons from Summer to Fall we present you our shoes with Sebago presented by Ronnie Fieg.
Tassel Moccasin & Lighthouse boot : These two shoes equally give you a sense of fall, with one slightly more minimal than the other. First up is the tassel moccasin, with a splash of color on a classic piece and interesting detail such as red tassels to provide a nice contrast. The Fortissimo of the collection – the lighthouse boot, with its 8 eyelet and classic silhouette, is great for F/W to pair over some nice denim or cords. Both shoes directly speak to different individuals but are cohesive in the design aspect of footwear as being classic go-to items.
The Street Etiquette Tassel Moccasin Shoe retails for $110 and the Lighthouse boot retails for $140. Both are limited in quantity and availability and will be releasing this fall 2010 ( September ) – expect a follow up post
If you thought creating your very own shoes would be an easy task you are highly mistaken; it’s a composite procedure, from materials such as various leathers, nubucks, lace stitches, soles and eyelets, all at your disposal to indulge in. We bombarded the Sebago factory looking to express our stylistic tastes in these shoes, and even though it was challenging, I’m floored by the finish product at hand.
Revolutionizing the concept of street style we teamed up with fellow Nexus Project participant and good friend, director/film maker Jake Davis, to provide additional visuals of the shoes in motion by shooting Travis. We had the pleasure of observing how the process of what may appear simple to us on the outside, comes to fruition from scratch.We first shot with Jake at the capsule trade-show several months ago leaving a notion that we had to recapture the same elements of style, but of course outdoors this time around.
Ending note : We would like to thank everyone at Sebago & Ronnie Fieg for helping making this project come together – Gary, Tom, Caesar, Natalie and the countless workers who crafted our shoes for this project.
