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.

    Just wonderful! Beautiful, comfortable, versatile and looking expensive. Run a little smaller than marked.

    Didn't like these boots at all. They are your standard rainboot (i.e. available at the hardware store for a lot less) with the tops cut off and some elastic goring inserted on the sides. Price was way too high, based on this. They were easy to get on/off due to the goring. But even though I was inside my feet were almost immediately a bit cold, which is my usual complaint with rubber boots. No insulation anywhere in the boots. And they were very tight width-wise, even though I was wearing thin socks (I have a wider foot). I ordered some Bogs at the same time as the Sperry boots and love them! Well insulated, thick, comfortable padded foot, easy to walk in...nothing to dislike at all.

    Soft, smooth and comfortable. Tradeoff is support. More like a slipper than a show you want to walk a mile in. I got them for the house tile floors so they'll do. The oldies were firmer leather with better footpads and more lateral support. The leather on these is vinyl-like and thinner and can squeak. I guess you have to spend twice as much (175) for Sperry Golds to really get an "original" "authentic" Topsider anymore.
