Sperry Top Spider

Since first designed in 1935 by Paul Sperry, Sperry Top-Sider has been an American favorite. His successful design was inspired by the pattern of grooves or cracks on his dog's feet and combined a leather upper-shoe with a herringbone pattern of grooves on the sole.

Sperry's shoe quickly became popular with boaters not only for its non-slip sole but also for its white color, which prevented the shoe from leaving marks on a boat's deck.

Today Sperry Top-Sider is known as THE Authentic Original, a true classic with that relaxed New England style and a part of the US Naval Academy casual uniform!
