Sperry 7 SEAS Camo Boat Shoe History
Part of a collection released in 2017, the Sperry 7 SEAS Camo Boat Shoe is built to meet and withstand the water and land challenges. It has breathable and water-repelling upper as well as durable outsoles that can keep you steady. This kick is made in partnership with the elite athletes of America’s Cup. This footwear is among the innovative shoes that Sperry has released on the market since it began its journey in 1935.
It all began with a sailor named Paul Sperry who invented and launched the boat shoe in 1935. He had got his inspiration by the time he saw his dog darting on an icy surface effortlessly. He noticed that it was able to dash because of the structure of its paws. Sperry carved grooves, like the ones on the paws, into the outsole. The footwear was known as the Sperry deck shoe.
From then, the Sperry boat shoe was born, and the rest was history. Several designs were released throughout the years. One of them was the canvas shoe called Circular Vamp Oxford AKA CVO which was a favorite design in the sailing community. But it didn’t take that long, and Paul Sperry decided to sell the ownership in 1940. Currently, the Sperry brand, along with Hush Puppies, Merrell, Caterpillar and Harley-Davidson, is owned by Wolverine World Wide.
