Sperry men’s deck shoes, inspired by Paul Sperry, who fell overboard in 1935. Inspired by his cocker spaniels footpads, he created the first non-slip deck shoe. In 1939, Sperry patented his design and in 1940 the U.S Navy made the Sperry top slider their official shoes. The top slider is still available now. The Sperry brand is worn by the American Gold Cup and America’s Cup teams. Making classic, traditional deck shoes whilst being sustainable and protecting our waters through programmes and partnerships. For a modern preppy look or out on the water, these are the shoes.
