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.

    I love these shoes. Only thing about a week after wearing them the rubber soles started to peel off! Easy fix with some gorilla glue. Stylish and comfortable.

  • Sperry Top-Sider by Gold Bellingham Slip-On w/ ASV Overall Rated: 5 stars! Comfort Rated: 5 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Oct 23, 2014 Randy from Folsom

    These are great. They look like boots and are comfortable out of the box like every pair of Sperry Gold series shoes I have owned. They fit like boot and by that I mean there is lots of room past the toe, but the arches and support hit in exactly the right spot on my foot. I can see how some folks may feel like they run large but to me the fit is great. I am wearing a size 13 so there was no half size down option. I've already received several comments on how much folks like them.

  • Sperry Top-Sider by A/O 2-Eye Slip On Overall Rated: 1 stars! Comfort Rated: 2 stars! Look Rated: 4 stars! Oct 23, 2014 Anonymous

    Liked the idea of the no-laces design but mine have started falling apart. The stitching around the eyelets that provide the support for the fit has come loose, probably due to the extra strain from not having laces. I don't expect my Sperry's to last forever, but the stitching gave up long before anything else on the shoe was particularly worn out. Stick with the traditional models. Better yet, get the JCrew collaboration with Sperry. They are the best top-siders I've ever owned. I'll be going back to those for my next pair.
