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.

I read the other reviews and ordered a half size smaller. They fit perfect and are very comfortable.

Didn't work. They were at least a half a size big, but even if they hadn't been they'd be going back. There is no insulation in the foot, just rubber. That would be fine except that from the rubber up they are insulated with even a large 1" extra rib of insulation at the top of the boot. So my foot would freeze and my ankle would sweat. Then the heel is also made of rubber and in addition to no arch support I felt a kind of squish when I stepped. They look very cute but just not practical for any use.

This shoe is currently a “maybe”. Very cute, feels great all over except at the toe box, which is narrow. My feet run narrow overall, I’ve never struggled with pointy toe shoes, but these feel just close enough to make me wonder if they’ll be comfortable for the long haul.

Felt as though it was about half size to large. I'm usually a 9.5 and this was big. Didn't seem to have much heel support.

Nicely designed casual shoe with a little pop by adding the ribbon tie. Not a whole lot of "snug" foot support so I'm not sure it is intended for a lot of walking. Pretty girly color

These Sperry Gold Cup 2-Eye Rivington boat shoes are classic beauties. Great workmanship, high quality leather, and super comfortable. I wear a 13 W in most shoes and that is what I ordered in these. The fit was perfect right out of the box. It is hard to find high quality boat shoes in wide width so I applaud Sperry for thinking of those of us who need a little extra width in our shoes. I liked the first pair in black so much that I ordered two additional pairs in navy and in grey. They will all get utilized extensively in the coming summer months. They can be worn without socks with jeans or shorts just as well as with socks for sport casual along with slacks and a sport coat. Either way, they are comfortable, great looking, and enhance the appearance of whatever they are worn with. If they are anything like previous Sperry boat shoes that I have owned they will last for many years with just a little routine care.

These are PERFECT for rainy days at the park! The shoe fits true to size and feels comfortable. The toe area of the shoe is wider than I was expecting, but it actually works well so I can wear thicker socks. Overall I would buy these again!

Very comfortable, right out of the box! The leather laces are cute but overall not super functional, they don't stay very tight so I can see myself having to replace them. The shoe is a little wide in the toebox so I needed to pull the laces pretty snug, which wasn't much of an issue. These are WARM shoes, perfect for cold, wet weather but my feet got hot in them as the day warmed up. Really I should have bought these months ago when we had all this yucky wintertime rain in Nashville. I can see myself buying another pair for Spring at some point with lighter weight fabric because they are super comfy and stylish.

I love these shoes! I have been wearing them every day for a week now. They are very stylish and comfortable. Well.....they weren’t all too great at first, I thought. I got a half-size small after reading the reviews. I am size 9 in most of the shoes and got an 8.5. The very first time I reeeeeeeally struggled to put them on. The zipper is not long enough and I broke a lot of sweat getting my foot into the shoe (felt like a Cinderella’s sister situation). It felt a bit too tight at first and I even thought of returning. But after walking in them a while they stretched! I still struggle a tiny bit putting them on (require 2 hands to put them on) but not nearly as much as that first time. And once they are on, they are perfect!

Ordered these as a casual shoe for the office, have worn a 10D for the better part of 25 years - these run large. There were no reviews when I ordered these, so here is your notice, definitely order a size down from normal. They fit a little snug width wise, which should be ideal as the leather breaks in. Overall, very comfortable and clearly made to a higher standard than "normal" Sperry's.

Had to size down 1/2 size. That’s ok though, i don’t like wearing canvas shoes with socks. I liked the style, and they don’t rub at the heel. Also, fair cushioning, so the jury is still out if they „walk“ well without killing my feet. I love the off white beige color, goes with everything. So far, they’ a winner in the cuteness factor.
