The 'Sperry Top-Sider' has been an American Original since 1935, when Paul Sperry invented the first boat shoe for sailors (nothing else kept sailors safe on deck).
Why is Sperry Top-Sider so slip resistant?
Sperry was an avid adventurer and sailor, and seeing his dog maintain traction on a slippery boat deck led his inspiration to develop his inventive non-slip sole and the world's first boat shoe. Sperry noticed his dogs paw had hundreds of small cracks and lines running in all different directions which helped his dog maintain grip on the boat. It's these lines and cracks in the paws that inspired his creation of the first non-slip boat shoe.
Sperry is a classic brand, with a beautiful range of canvas sneakers that will keep your outfits looking fresh and nautical, whether boating or not.
