I am in love with these shoes! As a long-time devotee of Sperry Top-Siders, it was love at first sight with this Chukka version. J.Crew recently came out with their own version, which they call "iconic". Is it really? I have no idea. For what it's worth, my pair came with a tag that reads "VINTAGE SELECTIONS: Inspired by Sperry Top-Sider's historic product archives". What I do know is that these are my new favorites, even more than the Made in USA Polo bean blucher knock-offs I recently acquired. These Chukkas are as comfortable as my regular Top-Siders, but with a more secure fit due to the higher top and lacing. Yet, they're not cut too high, either, just below the ankle to be exact, so they don't restrict and they're not sloppy, like Clarks desert boots tend to be. Plus, these seem to be made out of a higher-grade leather than Sperry's standard fare. They get a demerit for the fact that the 360-degree lacing is only decorative and not function, as it is on standard boat shoes, but that's not a big deal to me, despite my purist tendencies. This shoe is just too good in the looks and feel departments for me to care.

The shoe looked better on the site than in real life. The color faded a little after a few days worn. The top of the shoe when worn can get bothersome because it kept blistering my small pinky toe. Overall it is a nice shoe. For the ladies out there, I bought it just to see if a size 7.5 in mens would fit for a 9 in womens, apparently I was dead wrong! I definitely know I wear a size 7 in mens for Sperry. The Zappos site needs to provide shoe size charts for all brands because I do not like running into this kind of problem. Well, I hope you like the shoe.

I got these for a trip where they'd be my only shoes the whole time (and where I'd be on my feet the whole time). Remarkably, they didn't rub anywhere enough to cause blisters (most sandals do). They were both quite comfortable and attractive enough that I didn't feel self-conscious wearing them everywhere. That said, standing in them for 10 hours on marble museum floors led to a flare-up of plantar fasciitis; the arch support isn't what it could be. The other thing I'd caution is that walking on uneven surfaces with the bit of platform sometimes made my foot go over sideways. Not a big deal, but worth knowing.
