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 Harlow Overall Rated: 4 stars! Comfort Rated: 4 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Sep 16, 2014 Bri from Chicagoland

    Shoes are super cute and as described. A touch on the narrow side just like the Sperry deck shoes. Unfortunately there is NO arch support so if you have high arches or plantar fasciitis, these shoes are not for you. Fortunately, I was able to put my 3/4 length inserts inside them without my foot lifting out of the boot. They seem a little taller than described; for the size 9 the heel measured a full 3 inches.

  • Sperry Top-Sider by Angelfish Overall Rated: 5 stars! Comfort Rated: 5 stars! Look Rated: 5 stars! Sep 16, 2014 SpinAZ from AZ

    This is my third pair of Sperry Top sider 'Angelfish'. It is not often I find a pair of shoes that fit perfect, with no break in period right out of the box; when I do, I purchase a few in different styles to wear all the time. They have surprisingly good arch support for being a flat. They have functional ties to ensure a perfect fit, and they float. So if you accidentally lose one in the water, you don't have to dive in to get it back. Best flats I own, absolutely recommend!

    So glad my athletic teenage son finally moved beyond sneakers and slides. He asked for this shoe after noting that others in school were wearing boat shoes. And, he likes them! Fit is great, and no arguing about footwear! I even bought another pair the next size up (different color) for when he grows out of them.
