They never really went out of style ... Sperry Topsiders are the must-have shoe this season for men and women.
These iconic shoes were created in 1935 when Paul Sperry nearly died while walking on the slippery deck of his boat. He patterned the soles of the shoes after the grooves on his dog’s feet for traction and colored them white to prevent leaving marks on the boat deck.
From there, the no-frills Sperry Topsider became a national phenomenon.
Today, the shoes are more popular than ever and available in a wide variety of colors and styles.
For women, metallic hues are hot as well as the candy-colored patent topsiders.
Men have many choices ranging from traditional leather and canvas to city styles in high tops and neon colors.
Easy to love, this classic shoe is a must for every wardrobe.
