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.

The shoe came exactly as advertised, as many said, by a half size smaller than normal because you don't wear socks. Takes a good 4-5 days to break in but they are awesome after that. My one gripe would be with the insole inserts that come with the shoe. They only go about half the length of the shoe and there's a thin leather flap that levels out in the middle of the shoe at one end of the insole. This thin flap tends to bunch up and fold on me, especially when I put the shoe on. However once the shoe is on, its not a big issue.

My husband had been looking to replace his topsiders but couldn't find them wide enough. this was the only place I found extra wide. He is very happy with them

I received and returned 3 separate pairs. All had weird defects to them. I don't know if I'm just very unlucky or if Sperry has just lowered their quality. Which is too bad because I think it's a great style. Guess I'll have to find a similar shoe from a different company.

Get at least a half size smaller than you normally wear. These are not quite as comfortable as the A/O 2-eye, but they feel sturdier and offer a little more support. Comfortable warm-weather shoes. They don't breathe, so on very hot days you may want sock liners or loafer socks to wick away sweat.

Thank you! He's worn these shoes for years, often forced to get regular with in a half-size too large. This new pair wide-size fits perfectly. The shoes appear to be the same quality as first ordered 25+ years ago. Thank you.
