A man, a boat, and a dog. The Sperry Story

From one stubborn man's refusal to let slippery ship decks stand in the way for
his love of the open ocean to the iconic modern‑prep powerhouse it is today.

"A wet deck was such a
damn dangerous thing." - Paul Sperry

The MVPs

How it all began. At the center of our innovation, these 3 tried
and true styles are our past, our present, and our future.

White and blue CVO.

1935 Circular Vamp Oxford

The CVO becomes the world's first non-slip deck
shoe made with quick-drying cotton. In 1940,
it became the official footwear for the casual
uniform of the United States Navy.

Brown, yellow, and white Top-Sider.

1937 Top-Sider

Following the CVO's design, Sperry creates
leather version. Today, the Top-Sider is
as the Authentic Original Boat Shoe
and is
our most popular silhouette.

Pea-green Captain's Oxford.

1940's Captain's Oxford

The first casual shoe designed specifically
Captains. This style flaunts a higher
profile and
thicker sole for a more
sophisticated look.
