Sperry

Sperry Logo
Paul Sperry, founder of Sperry, was an avid sailor with a passion for adventure. He was an inventor, a sailor and an intrepid explorer. An independent spirit enamored with the power, freedom, and unlimited possibilities of the sea.

He was faced with a real-life problem that stood in the way of his passion: How to maintain traction on a slippery boat deck? No solution existed in 1935.

After numerous attempts to invent a non-slip boat shoe, Paul found his inspiration from his best friend – his dog Prince. Noticing how he didn’t slip on ice, he turned Prince’s paw over to find hundreds of small cracks and lines going in all directions. These became the inspiration behind his inventive non-slip sole and the world’s first performance boat shoe. It was a simple invention born of necessity.

In that moment of inspiration, he not only created an icon, he launched a brand: the perfect union of an inventive idea, a man, his passion, and the allure of the sea.

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

Sperry has evolved from the original boat shoe manufacturer into one of the great, authentic lifestyle brands; a rare brand that spans fashion and function without compromise.

Had to size down 1/2 size. That’s ok though, i don’t like wearing canvas shoes with socks. I liked the style, and they don’t rub at the heel. Also, fair cushioning, so the jury is still out if they „walk“ well without killing my feet. I love the off white beige color, goes with everything. So far, they’ a winner in the cuteness factor.

These shoes were painful between the toes. Couldn't even wear them around the house to test them out. These were returned.

This is my second pair of canvas sperrys, and this pair seems to fit more tightly in the width. I am hoping they stretch. Very slick bottom, so be careful on wet surfaces.

I wear 7 1/2 in every other pair of Sperry shoes. These were bigger and fell off the back of my foot. Need to exchange for 7.0

The main reason I like these boots is the fit. My orthotics fit inside perfectly and my toes don’t bump. I need them for rain and snow and they are perfect. I tried two other brands before and sent them back before trying these. Two thumbs up!

My husband is picky in terms of comfort of shoes and he found these true to size and comfortable. Plus it is a nice looking business casual shoe that goes well with chinos.

Good utility shoes for working outside in the water and mud. The velcro makes them easy to slide on and off. Based on other reviews, I bought a half size down but that wasn't necessary. I wear lighter socks, but don't recommend going down in size if you want to wear thicker socks. These shoes are not stylish or attractive, wouldn't wear them away from home, but works for what I wanted.

This is my almost 18-year olds second pair. Great everyday shoe. Last pair wore out fisrky quickly but he wears them often. Tread wore and inside of shoe where the ankle would be wore completely. Time to replace. Obviously like them enough to buy another’s pair!

Im usually a size 7 and ordered this size from a different vendor but they fit slightly too big. They didn't have the color I wanted in 6.5 so I tried Zappos. These fit perfectly and I love the color. Very rich color, lining inside is very soft.

Great shoes, good quality and comfortable. However, they are a light tan color. Definitely not the brown that is shown in the photo.
