The waterproof Sperry Huntington Duck Boot is available in men's sizes only, and like any high top sneaker, it provides enough ankle support. Additionally, the upper of the shoe is made from leather, which aids in providing support and holding the foot in place better. This sneaker boot also features a lace-up closure that can be adjusted according to the wearer's preference.

The Huntington Duck Boot is a casual, waterproof sneaker dressed in natural colors like black and brown. It also features either wool or leather upper that can keep the feet warm and dry.

Some even prefer to pair this sneaker boot with chinos.

The highlight of this Sperry boot is its waterproof characteristic. The Huntington Duck Boot features waterproof leather and seam-sealed construction. Unlike a normal sneaker boot, this flaunts a sleek silhouette that lets its wearers comfortably dress the shoe up and down. It also features the durable traction of a classic duck boot, thus ensuring to keep you on your feet even on wet surfaces. Since the shoe is prone to getting wet, it is built with rust-proof outlets.

Paul A. Sperry thought of developing a non-slip boat shoe when he fell off the deck of his sailboat. In 1935, he was able to produce non-slip footwear, which was inspired by his dog's grooved paws. Ever since its discovery, he continued to produce other shoe versions with different upper materials but a similar outsole. 

For over eighty years, the brand has successfully built a legacy of heritage products. In the present day, Sperry's have become popular in men, women, and kids. From the production of boat shoes, the brand was able to produce a wide array of footwear, including sandals, loafers, flats, sneakers, oxfords, and boots.
