Shoe Shopping: Sperry Top-Sider

February 27, 2012

Sperry Top-Sider shoes

Sperry Top-Sider shoes have been around since 1935 when Paul Sperry invented the first boat shoes for sailors. For decades sailors have been sporting these shoes on deck because of their high-quality leather, hand-sewn construction, rawhide laces, and non-skid sole offering maximum traction and flexibility. Whether you’re a sailor or not, the boat shoe is a standard in one’s summer wardrobe.

While we may be used to traditional brown and tan Sperry Top-Siders like these…

this American company now has a lot more to offer. The Sperry collection has expanded to include not only the classic boat shoe in vibrant colours but also additional types of footwear and accessories.

Sperry Montauk Slip-on Platinum $90

Sperry Pelican Silver Quilted rainboot $80

Sperry Pleican Rain Boot $70 Sperry

Sperry Harbordale Wedge Platinum $118

And these…I want in every colour…

Sperry Leopard Pony $90

Sperry top-sider medium tote $130

Sperry Sailcloth Tote $150 Sperry

And there’s more exciting things to come from Sperry. The company has recently announced that they will soon be including belts, small leather goods, swimwear, scarves, luggage, eyewear, and watches to their collection. Who’s ready to set sail?

    I love the metallic boat shoe! So fun to see this classic brought into the street scene with some sparkle.

    I didn’t realize that Sperry invented the boat shoe- thanks for filling us in!
