About Sperry Top-Sider

Sperry Top-Sider has been an American favorite since 1935 when Paul Sperry, inspired by his dog Prince’s ability to run nimbly over the ice and snow, used a pen knife to cut siping into the rubber outsole of a sneaker. These wave-like grooves called Razor-Siping™ were instrumental in maximizing the traction and performance of the Authentic Original Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes and are used to this day on Sperry shoes. 

Sperry Top-Sider’s boat shoes are known for their comfort and long-lasting wear. With a loyal consumer base, Sperry Top-Sider has moved beyond boat shoes, creating nautically-inspired collections for men, women, and kids that include boots, flats, sandals, loafers, sneakers, oxfords, and slippers.

Since inventing the world’s first boat shoe, their brand and their products continue to share a “Passion for the Sea” with those who enjoy the good life in, on and around the ocean.

  • Sperry Top-Sider by Hope Overall Rated: 2 stars! Comfort Rated: 4 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Jul 24, 2014 Anne Brennan from Brunswick, GA

    Love the looks of these shoes. Felt fine. On my second wear, I noticed they were loose, looked down and noticed that the seams were completely open on the outside of the toe cover and the heal strap. Very disappointed, though Zappos continues to be a great shop. Sperry is a good name, but they seem to have been less than wonderful with this particular shoe.

  • Sperry Top-Sider by Gold A/O 2-Eye Overall Rated: 5 stars! Comfort Rated: 4 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Jul 24, 2014 Nathan Merriam from Los Angeles, CA

    Fantastic shoe. The leather is very soft and supple. The foot bed is a type of memory foam, it's probably to early to know for sure but it feels very comfortable to me. The only problem I've had was that there was a string sticking out on the heel. I wear these with no socks and that string actually cut my heel up to the point it was bleeding. After cutting that string I haven't had a problem since. Also I had to send back the first pair I got because they were to big to be worn without socks. I ended up getting a full size smaller then my regular shoe size.

    Love love love them! They were a little tight at first, but I had already returned a pair of 9 1/2 because they were too big! After a couple days they stretched perfectly to my feet!
