Knits: not just for sweaters

May 22, 2019 2 min read

Whatever your day looks like, real life is all about being on the go. Whether you’re pacing around taking a work call or circulating at a summer party, you’re not sitting still for long. So when it comes to dress shoes, you want them to be able to move with you. That’s why we turned to your closet for inspiration...

Why your shoes need knits


We’re all familiar with the benefits of knits when it comes to clothing. More flexible than woven fabrics, knits are lightweight, breathable and, best of all, stretchy. Who doesn’t love the feel of a soft tee or a cozy sweater? The comfort of a polo shirt instead of a traditional button down under your blazer? And they are not just for tops and sweats; these days, you’ll even find multi-directional stretch knits in Dockers® khakis, too.

Here at Dockers®, we wanted to apply the same principle to your shoes. The result? A selection of Smart Series™ shoes with knitted uppers to help busy feet to breathe.



Our favorite Dockers® knit shoes

Knit sneakers, of course, have become something of a downtime classic: a can’t-go-wrong shoe you can rely on for everyday (we couldn’t resist doing our own take, adding four-way stretch to the Franklin casual sneaker).

The challenge, though, was to create a dress shoe with all the comfort of a sneaker, and that’s where our knitted uppers come in. Mixing a 4-way stretch knit with genuine leather, the Einstein Smart Series™ oxford shoe has you covered for work or play. This modern lace-up looks just right with dress pants, and will add a sophisticated touch to khakis and jeans. But thanks to its flexible upper and neoprene sock lining (not to mention NeverWet® technology to repel rain and spills) it’s lightweight and hassle-free, too — which means that you can just kick back and enjoy the party.
