Bottom line

The Sperry 7 SEAS CVO is a kind of sneaker that fuses comfort, style, and functionality altogether. Ideal for land and sea adventures, this sneaker is lightweight, breathable, and quick drying. It also features a non-slip rubber outsole, so wearers need not worry anymore about slipping on wet surfaces.

Thanks to its sock-like collar, lace-up adjustability, and Fierce Fit design, reviewers found its fit great and remarkable. However, some colorways of this shoe are much prone to getting dirty easily and difficult to clean.


The Sperry 7 Seas CVO sneaker is a part of Sperry's 7 SEAS lineup designed for the ladies with sizes ranging from 5 to 12 in B Medium width. The knitted mesh upper is constructed in such a way that it would give a sock-like fit to the wearers. Although a lace-up closure is present for customized and secured fit, it exhibits a slip-on profile in MocFit construction that supports and protects the foot. A pull tab on the heel is added for convenient wearing.  

Flaunt a relaxed style with Sperry 7 Seas CVO’s clean and minimal aesthetics. One of Sperry's lifestyle kicks, its knitted mesh upper in a sock-like construction reveals a sporty yet casual and comfortable vibe that perfectly fits women who are always on the move. Worry not if you prefer a laidback style instead, since this versatile Sperry shoe suits casual outfits just as well.

This women-exclusive sneaker from Sperry 7 Seas Collection features minimal aesthetics in a knitted mesh upper that offers support, flexibility, breathability, and comfort. Like other shoes in the collection, the Sperry 7 Seas CVO features some of the brand’s recent technologies such as the OmniVent construction for breathable comfort and quick-drying feature, SeaBound Integrated Energy Return System for underfoot cushioning, and a rubber outsole with Razor-Cut Wave-Sipping technology and Terrain Traction Pods for superb traction.

Paul Sperry founded Sperry, otherwise known as Sperry Top-Sider, out of a need to develop a non-slip boat shoe when he had personally experienced a boat accident. In 1935, with help from his dog Prince, the idea finally came true to life as he carved grooves patterned after his dog’s paws. He later on glued the carved sole on his old pair of shoes, which then became the first Sperry Top-Sider prototype.

Fast forward to early 2017. Sperry launched a collection of shoes called the Sperry 7 Seas Collection that is inspired by the brand's classic boat shoe models but flaunts sneaker aesthetics. Included in the said collection is the Sperry 7 Seas CVO. It is made for the ladies with features including a knitted mesh upper, sock-like slip-on construction with a heel pull tab, non-slip rubber outsole, and an adjustable lace-up construction.

  • The Sperry 7 Seas CVO also features Sperry logos on the tongue, side panel, and heel.
  • The CVO stands for Circular Vamp Oxford.
