    The great boat shoe that wasn't I previously owned a pair of Sperrys that lasted me for five years through summer and winter, they were my favourite shoes of all time. With that introduction, let me say that I'm very disappointed with these shoes. First, the soft interior leather feels nice, but this shoe takes a very long time to dry when wet as a result of that extra leather. Sperry classics these are not – the inside of the original shoes are simply the rawhide backside of the exterior leather, and dry much more quickly. Second, you can't wear these without socks. The fine leather on the inside sticks to your feet when they sweat, making the experience no different than wearing a dress shoe without socks. Third, the leather is perceptibly better quality than that on the classics. What you're getting here is a soft leather inside and nicer eyelets, not a better or more durable shoe. Last, the 'memory foam' insole does not give much meaningful support. In this way, they are on par with sperry classic boat shoes, which don't have much support either. However things are a bit more complicated, because the memory foam on this is stitched *under the leather floor of the shoe,* and that extra cushioning means there's not room to put a supporting insole in them (I used gel insoles in my previous boat shoe when I was going to be walking all day, they fit perfectly inside and made walking in them pain free). Keep in mind that I tried the thinnest gel insole on the market. No luck. So to recap, this is not a boat shoe. This is a dress shoe with a moccasin's worth of foot support, no room for an insole, a shoe that is slower to dry than the classics. I may just be showing my age at 28, but I find I have mild knee pain when I wear them, which irks me given that these are more expensive because they supposedly have support, and because there's no room for an insole. When you try these on, you think, great, this is cushiony, and that's support. But it isn't, because the cushion is not firm enough to really provide any resistance to a normal footfall. It's sad to write this out as I loved my last pair, and I'm surely not trying to trash a company that made my favourite shoe of all time. But I would not recommend this shoe.

    AO's are great, but Gold Cup is luxury. 5th pair of top siders. AO's are great, but Gold Cup's are in another league. Take note - The Gold Cup's run a 1/4 to a 1/2 size smaller than the AO's out of the box and over time.
