Sebago Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Sebago is an American Michigan-based company that produces a variety of upscale boating, deck, outdoor, and dress shoes. Sebago was founded in 1946. In 2017, BasicNet acquired Sebago from Wolverine World Wide. During the 1980s, the Sebago "Docksides" become a fashion trend at universities and high schools across the United States, as it was mentioned in The Official Preppy Handbook. In 1981, Sebago "Campsides" (a type of blucher moccasin, which, like docksiders, are traditionally worn without socks) were introduced. Three years later in 1984, Sebago sponsored the Single-Handed Trans-Atlantic Race in 1984 and America's Cup in 1992.

An anonymous customer of Sebago wrote a review about the discomfort of his shoes on the portal ZAPPOS in July 2011:

"My favorite boat shoes were a discontinued Sebago model so when I needed to replace them I stuck with the brand. These shoes are classically styled, which is nice. What wasn't so nice was the break-in period: I have never had a pair of shoes that took longer to break in. That includes Frye boots, old school leather hiking boots, etc. I was in pain, daily, for about a month and a half. If I hadn't worn them outside I would've returned them rather than endure that break-in period. Even after that was done they were never what I'd call comfortable (compared to other boat shoes I've owned). Other minuses include the leaky soles (no waterproof-ness here) and about a year in the stitching near the lower eyelet as torn out. Wanted to love them but ended up just living with them."


Tell the world why Sebago sucks!

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"The long time project managers for the most part struggle with workload delegation, almost every project is under budgeted in order to win work, and if you’re not an engineer you get looked down on. They have put the effort in to try and be more female friendly but they still have a long way to go."


"People tend to get pidgeon holed in certain roles. We are becoming a company of specialists. Interdisciplinary training is rare and difficult to get approved."

"No free return! They claim on their website to have "Free shipping and return", but they only have free shipping. Return must be paid by you and items should be send to Italy. Like their products, but will never buy from them again with this kind of false statements!"
