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.

Absolutely LOVE these boots! Wish I would have ordered them sooner, true to size and comfortable I've had them less than a week and have had nothing but great compliments!

I love this rain boot. I have a wide foot and a high arch. The insole that comes with the shoe had poor arch support but my orthotics work great. The boot has a wide toe box and that works great for me. It has been raining cats and dogs for the last 2 days. I am happy to have a cute rain boot!

Really cute boot. I was concerned that they would be bulky and heavy....NOT! They are very comfortable and lightweight. While I usually change out of my boots once I'm in the office, I could wear these boots all day. They were true to size and width. I ordered my regular shoe size. I love them!

I ordered these in my normal size (Women's 8) in the brown colorway. As a few have noted, they aren't the most attractive boot, but they are functional. I walk to work year-round in Seattle and these get me through the fall and winter months of gross weather. They are a bit loose around the ankle area, so there's definitely enough room to wear thicker/warmer socks in the winter. I'm not in love with the leather laces. They come tied as shown, but make the fit very loose. If you try to actually tie them, the leather laces do not stay tied. I wish they came with an alternate lace option. I have worn these for one winter (last year) and have just started wearing them again. I have noticed that the stitching is coming apart on the leather, which I will not be able to fix (since I don't have anything that can successfully stitch through leather). This is frustrating, as a $100 pair of boots should last longer than one season.

I kind of LOVE these boots! I've always had a pair of rubber boots that I rely on through the rainy season, as I hate having wet feet, and I walk a lot. I chose these because I wanted a shorter boot that I could wear with pants--the Hunters I had prior to this were just too narrow in the calf to wear with anything thicker than leggings. The Hunters also never quite felt right on my feet and caused me knee pain. I was so surprised when I received these--they are lined with a soft, warm flocking, and they have actual arch support! They are way more comfortable than the Hunters were. They feel sturdy and well-made, and yet they don't weigh a ton. I feel I could easily pack them for traveling. The only thing I am not sure about is that these cannot be tightened fully around the ankle, due to the tongue being all one piece with the rest of the boot. But, this never bothered me in any of my previous boots, so I am hopeful it will not bother me with these. I have the red color, it's slightly muted, towards a coral, natural-rubber color. Just slightly shy of a true red. It's great. Very happy with this one!

I bought these in 8W in the light purple and love them! The color is gorgeous, and the wide width is perfect. The nice thing is they do not look wide, even though they are nice and roomy. Very soft and fashionable too!

Great seasonal shoes. I will use a thick sock to add warmth as I bought them a bit bigger to be able to do just that! They will be perfect in the rain, snow and slush this winter!

Gray Suede 10 - love them. My go to "casual flat" for Midwest fall/winter (non rain/snow days - need more powerful gear on those days). Can slide them on/off without using my hands or bending over, if I leave them half zipped -- usually how I wear them. Perfect for running around with kids. I'm wearing them with leggings & socks peaking over top of boot, or even my cropped high waist jeans (loved those with sandals, but wasn't sure how to style them in winter). NOTE - the zipper took some breaking in. Was difficult to open/close initially. Great quality.

Super comfortable! The shoes are a bit difficult to get on because getting the heel into the opening is tight and the zipper is not that long. Once on though, they feel like they were made for my foot! Plenty of room in toe box. Really cute for skinny jeans and even though the tongue is a bit high (and I tuck it under my jean hem) I don't feel it when I'm walking or standing. They run true to size. Pale gray is nice color.

These sneakers are comfortable and so cute. Glad I got them. I bought them to wear with jeans and have only worn them with thin socks. They might be too wide for narrow feet, but I have wide feet and they fit comfortably for me.

Not my daughter's favorite Sperry. She's a size 5.5M and the length was good but they felt tight and stiff. She had been hoping to find a cute black boat shoe for winter, and these look a little more formal and would be acceptable for her formal high school dress code, but she felt like it would take too long to break them in and even then they might not ever feel right. We ended up returning them and getting two pairs of the Sperry Songfish style, which she likes very much because they look dressy enough, and felt instantly comfortable.

The Sperry Gold Windsor Lug Chukka is a bit pricey, but I must say it's a wonderful fall boot. The interior combination of the lambskin lining and cushioned footbed make this a great all-day boot. The suede color goes great with jeans.

OMG soooo narrow! Ridiculously so! What happened to the sizing of the width. Probably a AA from years ago, no way a medium. Sent back.

I really wanted this boot to work for me because it's stylish and constructed from quality materials. I'm typically a 7.5, but ordered an 8 based on others reviews and because I figured I'd be wearing thicker socks with the boots. However, the 8 was way too big. I ordered the 7.5, which was also too large. Finally, when the size 7 arrived, the fit was perfect. However, the seem inside the boot where the rubber portion meets the leather stuck out a bit and rubbed the back of my heel. I attempted to alleviate the problem with very thick socks, but it still felt uncomfortable. Strangely, it only happened on my right foot, not the left. If it wasn't for that issue, I would have kept the boots.

I love these cute Leopard Sperry's. They do run narrow but that worked great for me. They have the comfort memory sole inside. So fun to wear to jazz up your outfit. For me unfortunately I had to return them because along with my narrow foot my heels are even more narrow so walked right out of these. The Sperry's that work the best for me have laces so I can make the shoe snugger !

Awesome, man. Cool. Right on. These are rad. Actually I bought a pair, though without the Sperry on the eyelet grommets. My originals I am wearing right now without socks. They are so old I cannot locate any original complete model number. I thought they were 9.5W, but they must have been 10's. The new ones are almost identical, but are slightly shorter and more narrow. Not to worry. These I'm wearing have slightly different colored soles, but they are the same nice smooth plastic type, flexible and hard enough to walk in freshly dropped water oak acorns. They will hardly wear out. They, the soles, might become detached from the uppers when the threading wears through at the toe tip. The proof that I liked this is because I can't do without them and bought a new pair to always have a pair to wear around the house and yard.
