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.

Ordered a pair of Top-Siders. Received the shoes but unfortunately they had a blemish. I called Zappos and explained the situation. They were extremely apologetic and advised that they would get another pair out shortly. To my surprise, the shoes arrived the next day. Don't know how they did it, but would definitely but more from them. Highly recommend!

These used to be the best boat shoe made, now they are horrible, if you even sweat in them and take the shoe off the liner rolls up and comes out with your foot. As little as 5 years ago there was a leather insert that would stay flat for a long time.

Great fit (just don't tie them too tight). Great color. Great shoes for the summer. I've only road tested them for a few days now, but so far they still smell like delicious leather and not like horror (bought a cheap pair of boat shoes from Target last year that turned into a funk factory after a month of wear).

Finding what I wanted and ordering it was very easy. The payment process was simple and the free, rapid delivery was appreciated. I will not hesitate to use Zappos again.

This is the most comfortable shoe I own. I wear them outside, on my boat and around the house as slippers. Quality and fit are excellent. I like them so much that this is my third pair. Note: pair number 2 is still going strong but I fear someday they'll discontinue them.

I'd also recommend: Sebago
