Sperry

Sperry Logo
Paul Sperry, founder of Sperry, was an avid sailor with a passion for adventure. He was an inventor, a sailor and an intrepid explorer. An independent spirit enamored with the power, freedom, and unlimited possibilities of the sea.

He was faced with a real-life problem that stood in the way of his passion: How to maintain traction on a slippery boat deck? No solution existed in 1935.

After numerous attempts to invent a non-slip boat shoe, Paul found his inspiration from his best friend – his dog Prince. Noticing how he didn’t slip on ice, he turned Prince’s paw over to find hundreds of small cracks and lines going in all directions. These became the inspiration behind his inventive non-slip sole and the world’s first performance boat shoe. It was a simple invention born of necessity.

In that moment of inspiration, he not only created an icon, he launched a brand: the perfect union of an inventive idea, a man, his passion, and the allure of the sea.

Sperry's boat shoes are known for their comfort and long-lasting wear. With a loyal consumer base, Sperry has moved beyond boat shoes, creating nautically-inspired collections for men, women, and kids that include boots, flats, sandals, loafers, sneakers, oxfords, and slippers.

Sperry has evolved from the original boat shoe manufacturer into one of the great, authentic lifestyle brands; a rare brand that spans fashion and function without compromise.

My husband loved this shoe, but after leaving it in the sun for only a couple days the material shrank an entire shoe size ? which is very disappointing!

The fit on these is all wrong. I literally checked the tag twice to make sure they weren't wides! My feet were swimming in them, but the length was spot on. Super disappointing, because they are soooo cute! I adore the mint color for summer!! Back they go, since I'm walking out of them with every step.

I have multiple pairs of this style from last year. I was excited to add more to my closet, but these don't fit the same at all. The toe box is much smaller and the shoe was very stiff. My older shoes were made from a softer, better quality material. I was super bummed, but these are going back.

It took a few tries, but the size and fit have worked out. Started w/a pair of Sarto shoes in black patent leather. They were cute, but too stiff and too large. Saw several reviews for the Sperries, so I ordered in 7. I'm sort of between sizes, this was recommended by Zappos. 7s were too tight in the toe, which is a bit rounded. Ordered up to 7 1/2, fit is perfect, am very happy with the shoe. It's comfortable with a padded foot bed and attractive. Also very happy with Zappos overall, all three pairs were shipped quickly, and the credits for the first two returned pairs were processed promptly.

Usually wear a size 9 but needed an 8 1/2. They were too wide in either size and even with tightening the laces, didn’t help. Loved the color but have to return.

I typically wear a size 8, but I have other Sperry shoes that I've had to go up a half size for fit. I liked the look and feel of these, so I ordered an 8.5. When I got them, they were way too big and flopped on my foot. I'm not even sure an 8 would fit properly.

I love these shoes but I’ve only had them a week and the soles on the inside are already starting to peel. I’m very disappointed because it’s never happened with any of my other pairs of Sperrys. These are my favorite I’ve owned but they’re already peeling so I’m most likely going to have to replace the inside liners somehow.

I ordered these boat shoes for my husband in 8.5 wide width which he usually wears. However, while the width was just right, they seemed to be about a 1/2 size longer than usual. Still an excellent fit considering he intends to wear them without sock. Also gray color is perfect!

I agree with another reviewer here; the quality control needs attention. I'm glad I checked the inside of these shoes first, because there was a tear in the leather. The next pair was fine, and just as comfortable as I remember. Would buy again, but be vigilant.

Most importantly would be the fit. When you first get Sperry boat shoes they should be snug. They will stretch dramatically over the next few weeks. Also, I recommend double-knotting the laces asap as they come undone over the course of stretching. While they are very comfortable, Sperry's don't have much by way of arch support so if you need insoles you will have to order up a 1/2 a size or else you will never get your foot and the insole into the shoe. Other than those tips the only thing to say is that you should absolutely have at least one paid of Sperry's in your collection.

These shoes look great in pictures but when tried on they have "bloody stumps" written all over them (especially the heels). I was dismayed by the tight fit. They are freakishly narrow. There are enough shoes of similar style that are comfortable right out of the box - I am not going to spend half the summer suffering through shoes that may or may not ever get broken in. I returned these and bought a second pair of canvas Tretorns with a flexible heel; the first pair was comfortable from the first moment and has served me well through several summers.

I wear an 11. It fit, but it couldn’t go any smaller. Usually 11’s are a tiny bit loose on me, this 11 went a little to the tight side. It’s a very cute sandal, especially for a flip flop.

The Tan2 color was nothing like it is in person. It is orange, not brown or tan. It is also very unfinished - not burnished in any way.

I wanted to love these shoes, but I'm not there yet.They run a bit large compared to my normal 7.5. Not sure if a size 7 will be too tight? I'm still unsure if I'm going to keep them or return for a different style? Fashion wise, they are great. The color goes with everything!
