Sperry Striper Storm CVO Canvas Duck Style

Notable Features

A feature that makes this shoe stand out is its sheer simplicity and functionality. It has a plain-looking, laced-up canvas upper vulcanized to a rubber outsole, but with a lot going on behind it.

The upper is solidly built and rain-proof and has a gusseted tongue. All that sits atop a durable rubber lug outsole, which is applied with the patented Razor-Cut Wave-Siping that prevents slippage on wet and dry surfaces.

Sperry Striper Storm CVO Canvas Duck History

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.
