Category 5 Boat Shoes Co.
Category 5 Boat Shoes Co., was started by Jason Shuman along with four of his closest friends at the University of Miami. The group now supply customized boat shoes for university fraternities. The original idea came to Shuman when his old boat shoes fell apart and he wanted shoes with his Sigma Phi Epsilon letters on them. He wanted to combine style and quality in a boat shoe that was affordable. After finding multiple manufactures and testing numerous prototypes, the first design was born, the Yachtsman. The customised shoes display original logos and the "Class meets Custom" campus campaign ensured over 80 schools nationwide were supplied . The Cat5 sells for around $70 US and there are plans to offer them to sororities and others in the near future.
