Sperry Top-Sider is the original brand of boat shoe designed in 1935 by Paul Sperry. They were the first boat shoes introduced into the boating market. They have become widely popular in not only young women but young men today. With over a hundred styles to choose from it makes it difficult to find the one that fits you. Personally, I own the Linen color Angelfish Slip-On Boat Shoe. My first impression of these shoes was utter disgust. I thought they were extremely ugly and refused to not only buy them but try them on. Now these shoes have become one of the best purchases of my short college career. My shoes must be able to match all my clothes. With so many choices it's fairly easy to find the one that "calls" to you; however, you may have to search a bit because of how much they offer. They come in neutral colors such as brown, light brown, pink, and denim blue. They have patterns, colors, styles, and even the popular black and white sparkly pair. These shoes are versatile, casual, stylish, and comfortable shoe. I love that I can walk around campus without gym shoes and without flip-flops but still feel comfortable. They are extremely easy to slip on and if you don't like wearing socks that much, these are perfect for you. Sperry's are rather expensive. It was hard spending that much money on them but in the end they are worth it. If you way out all that you are getting they kind of make up for the prices. I would be more than happy to spend about half this price and maybe even buy a second pair right then. They are extremely easy to find especially because of their popularity. They can be found in many large department stores in the mall such as Macy's and Dillard's. Also, all over the internet such as sperrytopsider.com. and zappos.com which even offers free shipping. If you just search the internet several websites pop up. They are super comfortable almost as comfortable as my house shoes. They're easy to slip on. No tie. It's advised that you buy half a size smaller than you usually wear because they loosen up within a day of wearing them. Blue jeans turn the leather blue. They are wonderful in the rain. They don't get ruined in water. Non-slick bottoms so you aren't falling all over the place in slippery surfaces. I've had my shoes for about 6 months and they still look the same as the day I got them, with a few scratches and blue coloring here and there, I still am impressed with how they look. I've had several friends who have had them for over a year and they still continue to wear them. They have been stepped on, thrown, stuff spilt on them, dragged through water, and yet I am still in love with them. They come in plain brown box with the original white tissue paper. Display tables at the stores come with a wide variety of styles. However, they look the same as any other table. Nothing too flashy to look at or that catches my attention. You can dress them up or even dress them down. They match with jeans and even if you feel like wearing some sweats. Now that it has gotten colder these days I choose to wear them with jean pants but during the summer I wore them with shorts all the time. My light brown pair matches with just about every color shirt I wear. These shoes compared to all my others rank number one. They are ten times more comfortable than heels, easier to put on than gym shoes, and more protective than flip- flops. The big question - are they worth it? Totally. I'm even asking for a new pair for Christmas. I went from hating these shoes to falling in love with them within a minute of wearing them. I would definitely recommend these shoes looking for a "good" pair of shoes.

I really wanted to like these shoes. I mean they are sequined leopard print! However, I ordered them in a size 8, I am normally between an 8 and 8 1/2, and according to other reviews you should order a whole size smaller. I ordered the 8 thinking they would be okay and even a little big. I was wrong. They were so tight, it felt like it was cutting the circulation off to my foot. I don't even think that ordering 1/2 size up would help. I would order a wide size if I were you. I also felt the shoes looked a little funny too. But, thanks to Zappos, I returned them fast, and will be getting my refund tomorrow. Zappos is awesome! I will from now on only order shoes through Zappos!

Love my Sperry shoes, but they definitely run big! I am normally a 9.5 to 10 shoe, and based on the reviews I read here, ordered a 9. They stretched out quickly, I tightened the laces, and almost considered sending them back for an 8.5! But they settled out and now fit perfectly, and I love them. Totally worth the extra few bucks over the knock offs, these last forever! I have had Sperry shoes in the past, you will wear out before your Sperry shoes do! Love the new styles and colors! Love, love, love Zappos service!

Just got these and they are fabulous! I heeded the warnings of other Sperry postings and got a full size too small, but that's too much. Order a half size smaller.

I just received these shoes from Zappos today and I am absolutely in love ! They're extremely cute and even better comfortable! I had a bunionectomy in September 2011 and finding a shoe that is wide enough and comfortable is a challenge; these totally fit the bill! Many of the reviewers say to order half a size down, which I did skeptically (and only because they didn't have my size in stock) but let me tell you those reviewers were 100% right! I'm so glad I ordered the 1/2 size down because they would have been far too big otherwise. So even though it seems crazy order a half size down, trust me!

My wife says they are extremely comfortable. However, a bit loose in the heel, but she said it could just be her heel is too narrow. Those heel things (don't know what they are called) solved the problem.

Love! These are most comfortable shoes ever! They are now my go to shoe when I'm heading out the door. They do run a size big. I typically wear a size 8 - 8.5 so I wasn't completely sure what to get, but after reading other reviews and seeing others say that they run big I decided to go with an 8 and thought it would work perfect. Wrong...they were still too big, so I exchanged them for a 7.5 and they fit great! I would recommend that when you first get them give yourself a few days of wearing them at short amounts of time to get them broke in before you decide to wear them all day. I would definitely recommend these shoes and ordering from Zappos...it was the easiest online shopping! Definitely keeping a look out for another Sperry that I can't live without!

I got these in the leopard sequins and get so many compliments on them! I did have to exhange them for a 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear. They also seem to run narrow to me, but they are so comfy and I love them!

My Sperry Top-Siders are so comfy once they were broken in a little. They rubbed a little on the heel, but after a few days it wasn't an issue anymore. They are very cute with the print and I love that I can just slip them on and go!

I loved these from the moment I put them on! There was no "wearing in" period, they were comfortable from the get-go. I hate wearing socks and my bare feet felt great in these and they are very cute. They go with everything.

I love them. I am standing up most of the day and they are really comfortable and super cute. I have gotten a lot of complements. They seem to run a little big. I ordered a half size smaller then I normally wear and they are still roomy.

I love these shoes! My teenaged daughters each got them and they fit in the 8 and the 8.5. I'm normally an 8.5 but they were too big for me, and the 8 was too narrow. I think the 8W would have worked out but it was unfortunately not available. Overall though, this is a nice shoe and I wish I could find one that fits me.

This is the most amazing shoe! Buy a half size smaller because they do stretch a lot. The first time I got them they pinched a bit but within three wears, they were too loose. If I could pull a Cher and go back in time, I would get a half size smaller (than my actual size)and wear them while I was cleaning the house and they would be perfect. That doesn't make sense. Bottom line, it's a great shoe, just stretches a lot.

I do not generally rush to provide feed back--aren't there enough people doing that already? Nonetheless, I must say, not only was I over the moon to get these shoes in pewter metallic, I also cannot say enough about both the comfort level and the versatility/style of this shoe! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shoes, and I think that you will too! Buy them, even if the only boat you own is a kayak!

Love these shoes! Believe the other reviews; you do need to order a half size smaller than you normally wear. And yes, the shoes will feel tight (sometimes almost too tight) when you first get them, but they stretch, I promise! They take a while to break in (3-4 long wearings for me), but they are certainly cute enough to merit the effort. I work on my feet all day, and my feet never get tired or sore in my Sperrys.

Originally saw these at Macy's...went back to purchase, they were out of and not re-ordering. Came home and immediately went on Zappos.com to see if they had available. They did, in my size, free shipping. I ordered, expecting them to come in 3-5 days as I was in no hurry...they were at my door the NEXT morning. I have had nothing but exceptional service every time I have ordered from Zappos! Zappos Customer Service is #1.

Omg! I got my shoes in less than 24hrs of ordering it? That is a wow! It is cute and fits just perfectly. Go Zappos and Sperry Topsider for this beautiful adorable boat shoe I sure will add to my collections soon. I'm a wide feet and I wear a size 11 M, it is my exact size. Go get yours! Run!

Very stylish and fun yet still neutral. Comfy enough without socks, but need a little breaking in before wear for too much walking due to the rubbing on the heel.

I purchased these for my daughter. From the moment she tried them on - it was instant comfort. She wears them constantly and says all of her school friends are jealous! I will note, that due to the leather, the shoe stretches out a little after wear. Sort of like a comfortable pair of your favorite jeans.
