Sails On Your Feet

Sperry Topsider continues to evolve their Authentic Original and the newest entry into their storied canon is a canvas model that apparently feels like butter on your feet (so I've been told).  I'm always telling people that when it comes to their staples to snatch up the most classic version if possible, but in this case I am on totally on board with forward thinking (or trend forecasting if you're tryna be a jerk about it).  There's not much to complain about with this canvas boat shoe and, as far as I am concerned, it gets the most crucial aspect correct - the white boat sole.  Sperry offers a ton of shoes that come with a black or brown boat sole and that's all fine and dandy, but...c'mon...when we're talking S/S we're talking white soles. End of story.  With three colorways currently available it should be no problemo matching your shoes to your sails or your mini golf clubs if that's your thing.



  1. Getting those gray ones... just decided!

  2. I am currently wearing Eddie Bauer's Sperry version in Olive, and they are like butter. Though they look more light gray than olive when on.

    Also found Martin & Osa to be selling a faded version, which is featured in red as well:

  3. Yeah, I almost scooped up the olive/grey version the other day. These are it for spring/summer I think.
