Rockport offered friend and world famous DJ to the stars, DJ Cassidy, the opportunity to design his own Bridgeport boat shoe. To create the shoe, Cassidy drew inspiration from his musical and fashion influences, notably Run-DMC and Michael Jackson. To pay homage to Run-DMC, Cassidy designed a special elastic component under the tongue so that the boat shoe may be worn comfortably without laces and to celebrate Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” legendary video look, the DJ Cassidy Bridgeport boat shoe is constructed of soft pink perforated leather, a red canvas upper, and a black pinstripe.
In honor of the King Of Pop, Rockport has produced 50 limited edition pairs numbered 1–50 to commemorate each year of his life. The exclusive shoe comes packaged in a custom DJ Cassidy shoe box complete with pink tissue paper, red satin bow tie and personalized card from Cassidy detailing his inspirations.
