Sperry Gold Cup Haven History
Growing up with a family that shares a background for thrill-seeking adventures, Paul Sperry found his strong interest in sailing the deep seas like his great-grandfather. In 1935, still carrying a passion for the waters, Sperry found him in a near-death experience when he slipped on the deck of his boat and fell. If there is a revelation from this incident, it is that there are no decent shoes in the market that can provide grip on both wet and dry surfaces.
As an inventor, he went on a quest for formulating a sneaker that can help its wearers endure the demands of the sea and land. After many attempts, Paul uncovered the secret through observing his dog walk casually on snow. Looking at the paws, he noticed patterns which he later adapted on the outsoles of the shoe and now called the Wave-Siping. Since then, the brand has cultivated and built its reputation in producing high-quality Sperry footwear, despite expanding its style offerings.
