After watching his cocker move with ease on the ice, Paul Sperry decided to create a shoe sole with a finely chiselled sole, like the pads on a dogs paws. This was the starting point in the adventure for Sperry Top-Sider. Since 1935 , a passion for the sea still guides the brand in the development of its collections, making models that can mingle as casual shoes and that are more refined, to attract an ever wider array of clients.
More than the mode and shoes, which motivatesSperry Top-Sider, is maritime escape. It all started in 1935, when Paul Sperry, a genius sailor and inventor, created the perfect boat shoe after years of research and testing. After seeing his dog running on the ice and observing his pads, he dug grooves in the soles of his shoes. Very quickly, he gained notoriety and for good reason: no other equipment existed to this day to walk on the deck of a boat without the risk of slipping. The craze is such that during the Second World War, the American Ministry of War makes it one of thechaussures of the Navy.
