Fit & Sizing

The Sperry brand released the Crest Triple in women’s sizes, ranging from 5-12 in medium width. A breathable, durable, and flexible feel is offered by the canvas upper, while the padded collar delivers additional comfort to the ankle. Meanwhile, the low-cut design ensures that the ankle is able to move freely.

Released in Grey and White colorways, the low-top Sperry Crest Triple provide classic core colors that can be dressed up or down. Both are in neutral shades that will go well with bold hues, pastel shades, and similarly neutral palettes. The kicks are suitable for hanging out, walking around, attending a party or working at the office.

With their platform design, the shoes are ideal for wearing with jeans, pants, and shorts. These pieces will emphasize the sneaker’s heightened style. Skirts and dresses will also match the shoe’s chic yet subtle flair. It’s appropriate for the spring and summer seasons, bringing a dose of freshness to any wardrobe.  

Lightweight and breathable, the canvas upper of the Sperry Crest Triple offers a classic style that recalls to mind the brand's staple boat shoes. However, the timeless look is updated with a platform sole, which provides a boost of style and height. Other classic details include the genuine rawhide laces and the complementing barrel ties, delivering a secure fit along with an easy on and off function.  

Branding details include the Sperry name on the tongue and heel tab. The Sperry Sailboat logo is also found on the side near the heel. Adding a quirky accent to the shoe is the pull tab on the heel, which offers a contrasting color to the otherwise neutral sneaker.

Sperry was founded by Paul A. Sperry in 1935. He was a sailor and outdoorsman who sought to create the best shoes for sailing. The result of his endeavor was the original design for boat shoes, which featured a non-slip sole inspired by the pattern on his dog’s paws. He had noticed that his pet didn’t slip on icy surfaces, so he mimicked the paw’s grooves to transfer this ability to boating footwear.

The name of the shoe was the Top-Sider, taken from the nautical term topside, which refers to the surface of a boat’s hull that’s above the water line. Widely hailed as innovative, the original Sperry Top-Sider became a popular niche product among boaters. Sailors in the United States Naval Academy even used them.

Over the years, the brand has maintained its reputation for innovative and nautical inspired styles. It has since gravitated towards casual Sperry shoes that balance practicality and a classic appeal. Many models have been added to the label's catalog, becoming modern classics that are popular among different age groups.

One of the brand's staples is the Sperry Crest Vibe, which was a fresh take on classic Sperry boat shoes. It was made with premium canvas materials, along with a comfortable and grippy structure. The model has been so sought-after that the brand has released several iterations since.

Among its worthy versions is the Sperry Crest Triple, featuring eye-catching updates while giving the classic Crest Vibe a lift. This sneaker has a new platform construction that gives it a trendy and stylish appeal. Timeless details such as the soft-hued canvas upper and rawhide laces deliver a sophisticated flair to this everyday shoe.

  • The memory foam insole delivers comfort that lasts all day long.
  • An ultra-supportive traction is offered by the flexible non-marking rubber outsole. It’s made up of the brand’s original razor-cut Wave-Siping design.
