Boat shoes, also known as deck shoes, are this season’s quintessential chic shoes. Their laid-back look mixed with classic style is perfect when you want to opt for comfortable yet fashionable shoes.
The modern boat shoe was first invented back in the 1930s by Paul Sperry. Legend has it that Sperry noticed his dog’s ability to run over ice without any difficulty, and inspired by this, decided to cut thin slits across his shoe’s rubber sole in order to provide greater traction. This wave-siping pattern has now become a common feature of all boat shoes, including the popular SPERRY Top-Siders.
Originally made primarily for wear on wet surfaces, today boat shoes can be worn in a variety of different ways.
Our range of SPERRY boat shoes includes a variety of styles ranging from traditional authentic original 2-eye boat shoe designs in classic colors and materials like leather and suede, to fun seasonal materials and colors like metallic and soft pastels.
So whether you are hopping aboard for a day of sailing, out and about for a walk on the beach or heading into the city with friends, your boat shoes are the only shoes you will need.
