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.

These are the shoe. I wear these every day, to work, casual, everything. They are very comfortable, durable and look good too. I don't wear socks with them. I usually buy a new pair every 9-12 months to keep them looking sharp, although they are still wearable and comfortable at that point.

For me this shoe is "old reliable" as a combo slipper/sandal/casual shoe. Size is true without socks or with very thin socks. If you plan on wearing these mainly with socks I would order a half size larger than normal.

Good quality leather but we have had the seam come apart on two pairs now which is disappointing given the cost. Thankfully, Zappos has the best customer service around so they replaced them immediately with no hassle! Sperry makes you send the shoes back and then it takes weeks for them to send you a new pair if they decide you didn't abuse the shoes!

With narrow feet, I ordered size 10.5 S and I am very happy with the fit. I had previously tried 10.5 M which was really wide. The Top-Siders look great, are light weight, but the color (Sahara) is a little lighter shade of tan than I see on my monitor. Shipment from Zappos was really fast!

I got these for my son and he loves them. They fit true to size and he finds them very comfortable and good for walking.
