Since the launch of the brand, Sperry has built its legacy with a reputation that its footwear is not just for looks. The Gold Cup Sport Casual Sneaker is no exception to this, being outfitted with an Anti-Shock and Vibration (ASV) Technologies.

The advancement reduces vibration and shock for up to 30%.
Unlike most footwear brands, the inception of Sperry spurted as a solution to a problem. Growing up in a family with a sea-faring background, Paul Sperry shared this passion and found himself slipping and falling on a slippery deck which almost cost him his life. In 1935, Paul saw the solution after observing his dog walking on snow casually. Patterning the grooves of the outsole after the paws of his dog, Sperry produced a breakthrough shoe called the Top-Sider.
Because of the greatness of the shoe, the US Navy specifically requested to generate footwear specifically for them. Over the years, boat shoes became not only limited to boats. The seemingly exclusive preppy trend included Sperry as a staple in one's wardrobe. Over the years, the brand evolved but kept its heritage of producing quality footwear that performs.
