Step From Land to Sea in Bzees Footwear New Water-Friendly Line Sea Dogs


Athleisure footwear brand Bzees has announced the release of its first-ever, water-friendly footwear line Sea Dogs. Sea Dogs feature a unique drainage system in the midsole allowing water to drain out of the bottom of the shoe making it the perfect shoe choice for your water adventures.

“Our consumer wants the function of their footwear to match an active and busy lifestyle, but is also very aware of the style component. With that in mind, Sea Dogs are designed to take you from the day’s water activities and beyond,” explained Lori McDermid, VP of Sales for Bzees, one of the Caleres brands. “The drainage system is tested and proven to drain excess water out of the shoe to keep your feet comfortable and at optimum performance for activities near and around water including SUP, walks on the beach or even a day at water and theme parks with your family.”

The opening Sea Dogs collection includes four slip-on styles, with a total of eight color/print options, with a retail price of $69. The line includes sneaker style slip-ons Wavy, Wink and Wisdom; and maryjane style Wish. Sea Dogs are available for purchase online at and select retailers nationwide.

Sea Dogs features include: 

  • A drainage system in the midsole allows water to drain out of holes in the bottom of the shoes.
  • A rubber sole provides traction on wet and dry surfaces and contains plastic mesh hole covers to prevent debris from entering drainage holes.
  • Sea Dogs are chlorine resistant. A treatment is applied to the materials to protect them from fading due to chlorine.
  • Sea Dogs are machine washable using mild detergent and are recommend to air-dry out of direct sunlight.
  • Ultra-lightweight construction.
