Review of Rockport XCS Step Boldly Active Sport Slip-on

By Cefashion @cefashion

When it is time to put away the flip flops, sandals, and summer shoes, you need to have a closed shoe that is comfortable and ready for the wet weather that comes with the change of season. Rockport had that exact thought in mind when they produced the “XCS Boldly Active Sport Slip-on”. The Rockport Shoe Company has always been known for quality constructed leather shoes that have both comfort and function in mind, which are both evident in the XCS Active Slip-on shoe.

The upper of these particular Rockport men’s shoes are fabricated in soft, Nubuck brown leather that has a nice wide toe-box to keep your toes comfortable while walking. The leather extends higher up on the foot and to keep the fit snug, but allows for flexibility with the goring on either side of the upper. Rockport also gives you a generous amount padding around the heel and ankle area, as well as a leather loop on the back to make it easier to slip on.


With the XCS Active Slip-on, Rockport not only has given you a great leather upper, but also put the newest of technology into their foot-bed.  They have incorporated material called ADIPRENE by Adidas that allows more shock absorption to your heels, a dual-density EVA midsole for reducing foot and leg fatigue, and a combination of a sponge EVA and memory foam foot-bed to make your shoe fit to your own feet. The outsole of the XCS shoe is constructed of molded rubber pads that will give you the traction that you need in rain, sleet, and even snow.


You will find the XCS by Rockport online for the fantastic price of $79, marked down from $120. Also, if you are not a fan of the color brown, you can find the XCS in a black Nubuck with grey accents. At the price of $79 for a pair of all-weather leather shoes, you might even be able to get both and still be saving money.
