Sperry Topsider – the original boat shoe
The man behind Sperry Topsider, Paul Sperry, was a sailing aficionado with a passion for adventure. He was pondering a big problem though: how could he maintain traction on a wet and slippery boat deck? He found the answer in his dog Prince on a winter day in 1935. He noted that Prince didn’t slip on ice and when examining the dog’s paws, he saw hundreds of small lines and cracks going in all directions. That is how he invented the non-slip sole and so the world’s first boat shoe came to be. After many decades, the boat shoe is still as popular as ever!
When and how to wear your Sperry Topsider shoes
There are no precise rules when it comes to when and how to wear your boat shoes, but we can give you a few simple guidelines. As with every pair of shoes, it is always best to go with what you find to be the most comfortable and suitable for yourself. Boat shoes are best matched with slim, simple jeans, khakis or shorts. Match with a polo shirt or button-down shirt in solid colours or vivid stripes for a polished look. When choosing your boat shoes, the guideline suggests a thumbnail of space between the top of the big toe and the end of the shoe.
