Sperry Top-Sider is an iconic American company founded in 1935 by Paul Sperry. Sperry is known for inventing the world's first boat shoe 'a practical shoe with a herringbone patterned sole that would provide traction and prevent slips. The shoe went on to become an all-American classic, a preppy, Ivy League favorite that endures today. The label now offers ranges of footwear and accessories in stores throughout the world. From exotic prints to laced rope detailing, Sperry Top-Sider sneakers channel the traditions of the famous brand. Bold colors and sleek designs create a laid-back, summery feel.
