'The moment will arrive when you are comfortable with who you are, and what you are– bald or old or fat or poor, successful or struggling- when you don't feel the need to apologize for anything or to deny anything. To be comfortable in your own skin is the beginning of strength.' ~ Charles B. Handy

* As Paul Sperry watched his cocker spaniel, Prince, run across the ice on a winter's day in Connecticut, he noticed his dog's amazing ability to maintain traction on the slippery surface. Turning over Prince's paw, he observed hundreds of tiny cracks and cuts going in all directions. These wave-like grooves became the inspiration for Sperry's latest patent, 'Razor-Siping™', and were instrumental in maximizing the traction and performance of the Authentic Original Sperry Top-Sider™ (or Top-syder™) first introduced in 1935. Since inventing the first boat shoe, the brand continues to share their 'Passion for the Sea' with those who enjoy the good life in, on and around the ocean. From its introduction of the world's first siped rubber outsole for non-marking traction, to advanced technical fabrication to combat the elements, © Sperry Top-Sider™ remains the vanguard of high-performance amphibious footwear.
