    Cheaply made I was really excited that Sperry had this customization option and I had a great time picking out colors and everything, but when they arrived, they weren't the high quality that I have come to expect from the other A/Os I've had over the last 10 years. The insole of one shoe came out within the first 5 wears, and after one hard trip over a curb, the toe separated from the sole, leaving a big hole near the big toe. I am a klutz, I'll admit that, but I have tripped hundreds of times wearing my other A/Os (I have 6 pairs), and nothing has happened to any of them, even the pair that I've worn nearly every single day for the past 2 years. I really wanted these to work out, especially since the regular A/O line doesn't offer a dark brown shoe with a dark brown sole, which is all I really want...!

    Customized Shoes I ordered these shoes for a wedding and they came out exactly how it looked online! it said it would take 3 weeks to receive and it literally only took 7-10 days. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Beautiful shoe, But... I had so much fun designing my shoes! I picked my regular Sperry Topsider size, 7-1/2 wide, then picked the colors and even added a monogram. The shoes arrived quickly, looked gorgeous, but they do not fit. Length ok, width isn't. Neither The box nor the shipping invoice shows the size, but i guarantee this isn't a wide. I've worn topsiders for almost 40 years and can tell these aren't a size wide. Love the look, but they don't fit and can't be returned. Great idea unless you get them and they are too tight to wear. Sorry, sperry. I wanted to love these.

    There is going to be a breaking in period. There is going to be a breaking in period for me. The shoes are not wide enough and will need to stretch. There is good arch support. I enjoyed being able to play around with all the colors. May get another pair with more interesting colors.

    DisAppointing I Bought And customized these shoes For my wifre for valentines day 2016. We both have sperrys That we really like, however we were very disappointed when these shoes Arrived at our house. Everything as far as the cuZtomization goEs was as advertised but the inside footbed on both shoes came out as soon as she tried them on. It looks like they were not glued in prOperly and it really left a bad tastE for speRrys in gEneral. I expect every product to have their own problems And i respect that. I just dont think that if people Spend 120+ dollars on shoes they need to worry about gluing it back toGether after it ships.
