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!

I really wanted to love these shoes, but I walked right out of them. I ordered my normal size, but I wear narrow heels. These not only slipped off my heels but there was a large amount of space on either side of my feet. I do love Zappos and adore their customer service. I just need to stick with brands that I know are really true, narrow heels. The shoes were well made and attractive.

Extremely comfortable! I started seeing Sperry Top-Siders all over the place when I started working on a college campus. After trying them on, I can see - they are like walking on air. Super comfy for walking and look great with shorts, jeans, capri, khaki, etc. I can wear them to work or at home or just out and about and love that they are stylish, practical, and comfortable. Run a bit big; I normally wear 8.5 but followed advice of other reviews and ordered an 8, which fit perfectly.

These shoes are comfortable and stylish. They are also good quality and seem like they will last a long time. I do recommend sizing up though. My usual size was tight and hurt my feet, so I exchanged them for the next size, which are slightly too big, but they don't come in half sizes. Overall I am happy with these shoes and wear them to work several times a week. I am on my feet all day and they are comfortable and don't hurt my feet.

This would be a great shoe if I did not have such a narrow foot. The style is really cute on, but having to return because it was too wide and I could walk right out of the narrow width shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: unfortunately Aravon used to make a similar shoe that fit perfectly on a narrow foot.

I've been wanting these for a year - and in wide width they are sometimes hard to find. I have a true wide foot, meaning that I need a C width in pretty much every shoe I own, or my fit doesn't go in. My foot went into this one and when I was standing still it felt okay. Once I started walking, however, the toe box squeezed my toes uncomfortably. Sadly I needed to return them.

I absolutely loved these shoes. They have great support and are very comfortable, but they run very wide. I usually wear narrows but occasionally buy mediums. The S (AA) size was wider than most mediums and totally bowed away from my foot on the sides. Buy narrower than usual, but it's a great shoe!

Nice shoe. For a wide width it still felt a tad narrow. I usually wear between an 8.5 and a 9. This was an 8.5 and I am returning because it was too long - my heel did not reach the end and the shoe flip flopped.

I absolutely love these shoes: super cute, comfortable, and stylish. However, they do run slightly large. If I hadn't worn them a ton in the last week, I'd return them for half a size down.

Quixotic quality. I ordered a pair in a different color, and they fit perfectly. Same pair but in this black, and they were 1/4-1/2 size too long and did not fit like at AA. The pair that did fit perfectly was great. Too bad Sperry, like others, do not have anymore size or quality standardization.

These are so comfortable because Sperry finally made narrow shoes. They fit, are comfortable - no binding or pieces jabbing my foot on the inside; looks chic casual. I wish that Zappos had gotten more. They are almost completely sold out.

I love Sperry's Angelfish Topsiders and I have worn them for years. This most recent pair I ordered in an 8½ medium, the size that I have always worn, were surprisingly very short, too snug and uncomfortable and nothing has changed regarding my feet or my weight. They looked good, though, so I ordered the 9 and we will see what happens. I would have taken the 8½M to the shoe repair and had the toes boxed a little to stretch them, but these shoes were just too small all over. In fact I checked to see if I had an 8, by accident, and nope, they were an 8½. I am not sure what is going on there, but I will report on the next pair.

Brands I'd also recommend: There is nothing quite like Sperrys for quality and comfort., Naturalizer shoes are good, too.

Lovely shoe. Thanks to Zappos for helping me by telephone to get the sizing just right after the size I usually wear seemed loose. I can imagine this being a popular shoe with young and old alike. It lends itself to so many styles and is very comfortable. Love the style and fit.

This is my go to shoe. While I was never exactly a fan of the boat shoe, nor had a reason to buy a boat shoe living in a land lock area, I really liked the look of them with skinny jeans and striped t-shirts. I got these in a neutral color and while I thought they were a little ugly and the toe was a little less boxy than I wanted when I saw them in person, the fact they were super comfy won me over. I got my usual size (8.5) and they were a little tight when I got them, but now they fit perfectly. I like the quality of the shoe, it stands up to almost anything.

I love Sperry Top Siders, and Zappos is a great place to order them. The fit on this shoe is true to size, though the heel is a little wide. If I am wearing them without socks, I order a narrow. Otherwise, I order a narrow.

This is my first pair of Sperrys and I love them. Very comfortable. I ordered a half size smaller than I usually do and they fit perfectly. I also ordered Sperry socks to go with them and I would recommend buying them also.

I read a lot of the reviews and ordered a size smaller - not a good idea, they are a tad tight and when I went to order my true size they are out of stock now. My advise is if you are ordering from Zappos is to get your normal size and a size smaller as you can always return one with free shipping. I wear a 9 and wish I had gotten the 9 as I love the style and will keep the 8.5 but its tight across my toes so praying it stretches.

Love these shoes! Was especially attracted to the dark brown color as everyone has a tan pair! Look great with jeans, khaki & black pants as well. Little sparkle on sides was an added bonus I didn't see when ordering. Very comfortable as all Sperrys are!

I love these shoes so much I ordered two more pairs. The only complaint I have is that after wearing them for a few months the material started to fray from the bottom of the shoe, where the upper part of the shoe meets the sole. When I looked inside the shoe, there is a definite "slash" of the material inside. I have had these for about 6 months. Shoes at this price should last longer than 6 months. Will try to return as defective.

Shoe looked exactly like picture, but I didn't realize that the middle part of the shoe is actually a slick fabric material. However, it still looks great and fits like all my other Sperrys (I always have to size down 1/2 size). Loved the navy!
