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!

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!

I love these shoes! They have the classic, boat shoe look. Granted, they did take some time to break in, but once I added a rubber grip on the heel and had worn them for a week or so, there were not any problems. They are comfortable to walk around in and are great for a casual outfit.

Brands I'd also recommend: Sperry, Clarks

This was the best purchase of shoes I have ever made. They are so comfortable. I have the black fishscale style and they are so cute and go with anything. I usually wear 7.5 or 8 and I got these in an 8 and they fit perfect once I broke them in. They were a little tight at first but they stretch out nicely. Don't get me wrong, these aren't the cheapest shoes on the market but they are worth every penny in comfort and versatile style.

I was looking for what I called "rehab shoes" for after I had my left knee replaced. I bought these on the recommendation of a friend who had a knee replacement a year ago. They worked out super. Glad they were a little bigger as foot was swollen, then realized I could tighten the laces or wear socks with them. I am still wearing them now that I no longer use a cane. Thanks.

These shoes are really cute and versatile. Good quality. A little stiff at first but they are softening up and breaking in nicely. I usually wear a 6M and sometimes have to go to a 6-1/2 in athletic shoes but I actually had to get these 1/2 size smaller.

I'm so disappointed and honestly quite baffled by these shoe and the reviews! I purchased these 4 months ago and still have yet to wear them without pain or discomfort. The are adorable looking and I love the thicker sole to provide support, but these shoes hurt your feet! I took the advice from the reviews and ordered a half size down. I usually wear a 6.5 or 7 depending on the shoe so I ordered the 6.5 in these. They feel like a whole size smaller and it's taken a lot of creative effort to stretch these shoes out! Stuffed with wet newspaper and thick socks finally got them to the point where I could actually wear them for a few hours but even now I'm still trying to stretch them out. I'm not sure if it's the materials on my specific style, but the vinyl detail on the toe knuckle is painful! The toe part of this shoe really seems to narrow. I do love the look of this style, especially with straight/ankle pants but please be warned, these shoes require effort to wear comfortably! If I choose to try these shoes again, it will be with caution and definitely order my true size or a half size larger & wide width.

Toe and toe joint area is narrower than I was expecting. The good news is that it does wear in rather nicely though. Pleased overall with it.

LOVE these shoes! I have tried on Sperry's a few times before and just hated the way they looked on my feet, but I fell in love with this pair. I'm not sure if it's the darker color that made them work for me, but they fit perfectly and the pattern makes them unique (I got the navy foulard/menswear). I went with a size 7 based on reviews saying to go a 1/2 size smaller, I'm usually between a 7 and an 8 in most shoes. So excited to wear them this fall!
