An adventurer of both sea and land and a lover of dogs, Paul Sperry produced the world’s first boat shoe in 1935: the Canvas Circular Vamp Oxford, or the CVO. It was a nonslip boat shoe, whose outsole tread mimicked the grooved pattern of his dog’s paws. The process has long been called Razor Cut Wave-Siping. That same year, Sperry Top-Sider began, now mostly known as Sperry.
Famous at sea for their boat shoes, both offered in canvas and leather, Sperry hit the inland mainstream as the prep subculture began wearing their shoes, such as the CVOs. Sperry banked on that model and churned out many designs. The Sperry Stripe Storm CVO Canvas Duck is among these modern CVOs. Just as classy, but has a whole deal of new in it.
