When you think premium handsewn leather boat and/or deck footwear, you think Sperry Top-Sider shoes. They've been a leader in nautical footwear since 1935, when Paul Sperry invented the wavy razor-cut "siped" rubber sole for slip-resistant traction on a wet deck or dock. It's now trademarked as Wave-Siping™. As they say, the rest is history.
Sperry Top-Sider shoes were originally designed for men and women who lived and breathed weekend water adventures by powerboat, sailboat, pontoon, rowboat or whatever sea-worthy device would get them on the water and away from land. Sperry Top-Sider shoes were designed to resist the staining of water and sea salt, stay comfortable after repeatedly getting wet and drying out, and most importantly keeping a secure grip on wet or dry surfaces. Sperry Top-Sider shoes did all that and more.
Word spread about rugged Sperry Top-Sider shoes and soon everyone wanted a pair. Today, the owner of a pair of Sperry Top-Sider shoes could be a landlubber, just as easily as a sea-goer. Sperry Top-Sider shoes have kept raising the bar on their performance-driving, nautically-inspired footwear. They've developed new technologies such as their Wave Comfort System™ to improve cushioning and air circulation. Sperry Top-Sider shoes continue to use materials such as rust-resistant hardware, dual-density Memory Foam insoles, leather linings and heel gel cushions to keep their standing as America's #1 boat shoe.
