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.
