Albeit made for casual use, these sneakers have the technologies that equip the user to set sails for a bigger adventure. This shoe has an Anti-Shock and Vibration (ASV) technology that is a shock absorbing feature that performs 30% higher than regular cushioning systems.
Paul Sperry grew up in a family that shares the same passion for sailing. One day, he found himself in a dreadful accident of falling off while on an adventure. It made the inventor side of him realize that there are no shoes available in the market that would keep him safe on and off the boat.
Because of that, Sperry went on another quest for creating footwear that would be ideal to use when sailing. After several attempts, he got his spark of inspiration when he saw his dog casually walk on the sheet of ice. It made him take a second look at dog's paws and realize that it sports a particular pattern. He imitated this on the outsole of the shoes and generated non-slip footwear that Sperry became known for. Since then, the brand has produced several models that combines function and style. One of their most recent releases is the Sperry Sport Casual LTT, a part of the Gold Cup, the more upscale collection of the brand.
