Sperry Cloud Slip On Deck History
Founded in 1935, Sperry began as the pioneer of boat shoes. Paul Sperry, who had salt in his blood, took inspiration from one sailing incident: he slipped on the wet deck and threw himself overboard into the sea. Once on land, he immediately went to work—creating a shoe that doesn’t slip on wet surfaces. Almost throughout the winter of 1935, his attempts all failed but one.
Seeing it fit to rest his tired nerves, he took a breather outside in the snow, taking along his Cocker Spaniel with him. That's when all began things falling together for Sperry, who was a seafarer, a trailblazer, and an innovator. He was watching his dog, named Prince, who was running without slipping over the sheets of the ice. Such a sight struck him with an idea, and so he dashed back to his workshop.
In 1935, the first-ever Sperry Top-Sider sneaker was released, the Canvas Circular Vamp Oxford, or CVO. Paul Sperry made a low-top sneaker made of a canvas upper, which has a cotton lining for a quick dry. But what made it special was its vulcanized rubber outsole whose tread mimicked the grooves of his dog’s paws. The process is now patented as the Razor-Cut Wave-Siping, applied to all Sperry sneakers.
The Sperry Cloud Slip On Deck is the reimagined canvas slip-on version of the brand’s original 1935 canvas deck sneaker, the CVO, which was world’s first boat shoe. It is crafted with the same nautical styling and quality comfort, for which Sperry shoes were widely known around the world, both in land and sea.
