This is a great mild/warm weather shoe. It's essentially a dressier sandal. You should definitely get one size smaller than what you wear (since you don't really wear socks with the shoe). The shoe (and laces) initially took some getting used to (because I never thought I'd wear boat shoes), but the shoe ultimately grew on me, and I get great use out of it because it is so versatile.

These may be called Authentic Originals, but they are not the shoes that made Sperry famous. These are cheap Chinese trash. The leather is thin and flimsy and the styling is K-mart quality. They are supposedly boat shoes, but after one week around the water they looked ten years old. If you want a good Sperry boat shoe you're going to have to buy the Gold Cup for megabucks.

I had had a pair of topsiders that I wore for years, and when they finally wore out, I stupidly decided to throw them out, rather than get them resoled. What a mistake. The new topsiders are of markedly lower quality. The soles are not glued on smoothly: there is some lumpiness in the glue application that you can really feel. The tongue, small as it is, is still weirdly loose and often gets turned under when you slip the shoe on. The leather quality is lower, the laces will not stay tied, and because of the leather they are made of, cannot really be tied: I had to get out the hot glue gun to fix the knot.

Bought my 14 year old his second pair of Sperry's. He loves them. His first pair still look great after 6 months...he just grew out of them. Highly recommend.

This is the only casual shoe I wear. Have been purchasing the same style and brand for about forty years now, so what does that tell you? Once you find something that works as well as this shoe, stick with it!

Nice shoes! Got a different width but turned out I didn't need it. Width runs a little big. But overall I like the shoes a lot.

Aside from looking great with jeans, these are easily the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Every guy should own a pair of these in their lifetime, they are a classic shoe.
