Sperry Crest Mule History
In 1935, Paul Sperry, a true-blooded adventurer and seafarer, fell into the cold night waters of Long Island. He had slipped off the wet deck of the Sirocco while all other passengers were asleep. But with his bad luck saving him from worse luck, Sperry managed to pull himself back to safety. The incident grasped him with an idea for a non-slip footwear, which bore fruit during the winter of that year.
The Canvas Circular Vamp Oxford (CVO), the world’s first boat shoe, appeared in 1935. A product of simplicity and utility, this boat shoe boasts of a grand innovation. Its non-marking rubber outsole mimicked the grooves of a dog’s paw, providing excellent traction even on wet surfaces. The design, which the men of the sea loved, became Sperry’s long-enduring trademark.
The decades rolled along, with Sperry churning out many different silhouettes, and eventually ventured into lifestyle, casual wear. Among the brand’s recent lifestyle silhouettes is the Sperry Crest Mule, exclusively designed for women, but without losing classic Sperry’s legendary detailing and features.
