Since 1935, when Paul Sperry invented the first boat shoe for sailors, Sperry has been the name in boat shoes and apparel.

All sailors and boaties know the name Sperry, which is synonymous within the yachting industry for its high quality products. The Top-Sider slip on is these days joined by an array of casual/dress style shoes for men and women, as well as directional and trendy lines you’d see in any fashion magazine, with raffia, ribbon, sequins and other detailing.

Whatever the style, each and every shoe embodies the Sperry ethos 'A Passion for The Sea' and is totally versatile for your on-water or land lifestyle.



The Men’s and Women’s Authentic Original (A/O) 2-Eye Boat Shoe has been the boating staple for generations. Combining classic comfort and enduring style for a timeless look, its features include genuine Hand-Sewn Tru-Moc Construction for Durable Comfort; Stain and Water Resistant Leather for Durable and Lasting Wear; 360° Lacing System™ with Rust Proof Eyelets for a Secure Fit; Shock Absorbing EVA Heel Cup for Added Comfort; Non-Marking, Rubber Outsole with Razor-Cut Wave-Siping™ for Ultimate Dry/Wet Traction.

Sperry Top-Sider is dedicated to supporting the sport of sailing, not only through creating quality footwear for the sport, but also through contributions of time and funds to a series of programs that exemplify the Sperry Top-Sider spirit of sportsmanship, competition and fun.

Sperry Top-Sider is proud to sponsor of US Sailing, and be the Official Footwear of US Sailing. In addition to their sponsorship of the organization and the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider, Sperry Top-Sider supports the US Youth Sailing Championship and a proud sponsor of the US Sailing Team for the London Olympics.
