As you might expect I totally lost my shit when Sperry's Authentic Original red brick sole styles dropped. Phrases like "favorite item of all time" were thrown around and while in hindsight that seems a little silly I think we can all agree that these shoes are badass. In the past I had passed over suede Topsiders based on the simple fact that Authentic Originals were meant for water and suede uppers defeated that purpose entirely, but once I saw the RBS versions I quickly changed my tune. It was virtually impossible not to love these - THE classic, original boat shoe with an actually impressive update. The first batch of colorways were dope and Sperry has released a few more styles to go along with the initial run (if they are still in stock of course). Surprisingly I think the black number is the coolest, which is something I never though I'd say. There are also white and brown options to round out this solid selection for sockless S/S jaunting.
