Sperry Topsider Boat Deck Shoes
Sperry Top-sider is an American brand of Boat Shoe designed by Paul Sperry in 1935. Sperry was a huge boating fan, and could be found most of the time on his boat. After some time Sperry noticed that due to the wet surfaces of the boat they risked injury or being tossed overboard and set about trying to master this problem. After many prototypes and failed attempts to provide himself and other boat enthusiasts with a shoe that would provide improved traction Sperry finally took inspiration from the grooves of a dogs paws and matched a leather upper with a herringbone pattern of grooves on the sole. This process involved splitting a rubber sole created some 15 years before. As Sperry's shoes caught on very quickly amongst other boaters for its functionality and trend with the US Navy then negotiating a contract to manufacture the shoes, leading to the countrywide retailing of the Sperry Top-sider.
Sperrys currently use the advertising slogan "A Passion for the Sea" when promoting their product, however due to this seasons fashions deck shoes or boat shoes are quickly becoming a fashion must have, offering a much smarter Summer footwear option to the flip flop, trainer or canvas shoe. The Sperry Top-sider collection will consist of six pieces of Summer footwear, with a further collection due later this year for the Autumn Winter footwear range.
