Homage to Three Originals

Seafarer, trailblazer, and innovator Paul Sperry sailed headfirst into life, and he built the shoes for it. What began in 1935 as ingenuity, effortlessly became a shoe legacy.

The Cloud Collection celebrates three iconic Paul Sperry shoes: The CVO Sneaker, The Authentic Original Boat Shoe, and The Captain’s Oxford. These styles riff off their ahead-of-their-time designs with new takes on materials and treatments that feel familiar and fresh.

The Icon... Updated

Paul Sperry's design, now synonymous with the term "boat shoe", is also known as the Authentic Original, or just the A/O. With its classic moccasin construction and iconic 360 degree lacing, the A/O is re-imagined here in new colors and materials for style with a sense of adventure.

Legacy on Sure Footing

As sneakers go, this one — designed for form and
function — was already near perfection. We set out to
keep its timeless silhouette intact while incorporating
the broken-in comfort of modern construction. The
result? A shoe that still knows where it stands.
