Ahoy mateys! Slipping and falling, especially off the deck of your boat, is a quick and painful reminder that good traction in your footwear is an absolute necessity. It is this experience that compelled inventor Paul A. Sperry to design a non-slip shoe (Top-Sider) for boaters and sailors. Eighty years later, Sperry continues to build upon their legacy of designing hand-crafted footwear, made from high quality materials, for the entire family. In addition to the iconic boat shoe, Sperry also offers a variety of boots, sandals, loafers, sneakers and apparel for boaters, sailors, fishermen and land lubbers everywhere. Welcome aboard.
