About Cape Dory Rigging: Cape Dory Rigging is an adventureware brand and originator of the
original boat shoe sandal, the Dory. Named for a classic fiberglass sailboat, Cape Dory Rigging
started in 2011 with a simple idea: Combine the classic style of a boat shoe with the summer
comfort of a sandal. The initial prototype was cobbled together from a few old pairs of
sneakers, some rope, and a leather purse. In 2017, Cape Dory Rigging officially launched with
the release of the Dory. Visit Cape Dory Rigging’s home on the web at
