Comfy from the first step-in
This Sperry shoe has become an instant hit among stylish ladies who like keeping their feet pampered. A lot of praise was given to the comfortable in-shoe feel that needs no break-in period. “Felt like I had them forever since day one,” says one of the reviewers.
Most of the comfort is attributed to the cushy memory foam footbed. “So soft and comfy that I forgot I had them on,” shares a wearer. It is so good that some women even bought multiple pairs of different colors.
On the downside, a few reviewers experienced tension and rubbing coming from the tongue of the shoe as well as the heel. So, it might be a good idea to wear a sock with the sneaker.
Sperry Pier View takes care of your daily walks
More than a few ladies enjoyed wearing this Sperry sneaker for hours. Some mention wearing it all the time, while others are a bit more specific reporting that they had it on their feet for 8-13 miles a day on a trip to Europe. One person even claims that she “never had shoes that did not bother [her] at all” before trying the Pier View.
Attractive design that goes with anything…but gets dirty
A lot of reviews mention that the Sperry Pier View is “super cute” and “streamlined.” The wearers really love the design and fabric of the sneaker. In the words of a reviewer, it is a type of shoe that “could easily go a little more dressed up or super casual.”
Unfortunately, that canvas or leather upper that the buyers loved so much also became a reason for disappointment. “Gets dirty quickly and is very hard to clean, almost impossible,” sums up one of the reviewers. Another lady who had only worn the shoe for a week, complains about already having brown stains on the white canvas after walking in very light rain.
Easy on, easy off
This Sperry sneaker makes takes away all your worries about lacing shoes. The shoe is described as easy to put on and take off and yet it doesn’t slip off when you don’t want it. Thanks to the elastic on the tongue, the Pier View remains secure on the foot. "I didn't walk out of this one like I do so many other shoes," reports a wearer.
Pier View is light on the feet
Simplistic design, thin upper material, and thin leather laces make the Pier View a featherweight favorite. Ladies applaud the lightweight construction of the shoe, noticing that it feels lighter than most sneakers.
A few wearers of the Pier View took note of the durability issues, particularly in the heel and tongue areas. Some complained about the flimsy heel counter which caused slight rubbing on the heel. Some also noted bunching of the tongue which caused discomfort. In addition, the color of the leather laces bled on the upper fabric after a few washes.
