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.

Soft, smooth and comfortable. Tradeoff is support. More like a slipper than a show you want to walk a mile in. I got them for the house tile floors so they'll do. The oldies were firmer leather with better footpads and more lateral support. The leather on these is vinyl-like and thinner and can squeak. I guess you have to spend twice as much (175) for Sperry Golds to really get an "original" "authentic" Topsider anymore.

I live in Florida and wear this type of shoe most of the time. The shoe fits as it should, the size was right, I'm sure I'll be purchasing more of this shoe maybe a different color.

Some of the reviews say these felt a little larger so order one size smaller, I did and they are way to small. I thought wearing them would stretch them out a bit but to no avail, very narrow in the toe box.

I received the ordered shoes in few days. They fit perfectly. I needed a triple wide in this style and Zappos had it. They have such a great selection and fast shipping.
