Founded by Paul Sperry, the Sperry Top Sider brand was born from the desire to replicate the ease of movement his dog had over ice. As a sailor, innovator and business man, he pioneered the world's first boat shoe with textured rubber soles. Since its inception in 1935, Sperry Top Sider has continued to make practical footwear while expanding to include knitwear and timepieces. Sperry Top Sider wedges are crafted with the same traditions upon which the coveted company is built. Instantly recognized by trademark details, each pair of booties, sandals and pumps adds directional yet comfortable lift to all outfits.
