His boots were made for walking -- James Seuss has not only switched jobs, he’s also sold his home on Shelter Island.

Until recently, Seuss was chief executive of luxury footwear and outerwear company Cole Haan and vice president of Nike, Inc. He’s accepted a position starting in March as chief executive officer of timepiece retailer Tourneau Llc. In the meantime, Seuss closed on the sale of his four-bedroom cedar home overlooking Gardiners Bay.
