Love the comfort in my gray suede shoes with a reddish sole. I have flat feet, so the built in arch in the removable inner sole is most welcome. I have worn many styles of Topsiders and this is the first time for the Bahaman boat shoe. I like its thick rubber outer sole, as well. I recommend this shoe.
The suede leather version is rugged and comfortable and much better suited to protracted excursions and rough terrain walking than the otherwise superb A/O's. One caveat however, this shoe will not permit jam-on wearing, which is one of the charms of the A/O's. You need two hands to hold the flabby tongue in place while the shoe is put on and laced- if you try to jam the shoe on without your hands, the tongue will fold into the shoe, so be advised of this one limitation.
who has been a Sperry man for decades. I ordered online and when the shoes arrived he thought he might need to go up one size for comfort. Sperry made the return process absolutely painless and we had the new shoes in a flash. Excellent products accompanied by great customer service are so rare these days - what a nice surprise!
i love my sperrys don't get me wrong, but the problem i had with these was the durability. after my 3rd time wearing them the rubber on the side of the shoe started peeling away from the shoe and i'm not sure if there is anything i'm able to do about it?
I have always had wonderful luck with sperry, but this is the first time that I am regretful of my purchase. This shoe was not true to size and extremely wide. I recommend these shoes and I will continue to buy them as they have always stood by their quality.
I have another pair of Bahama's that are dark grey and are my favorite Sperry's. These are a welcomed addition for warm weather and from what I am told go great with anything. Great deal and very comfortable with out without socks!
I have been wearing Sperrys for over 30 years and this shoe I have to keep looking at the size to see if it is correct. It states 7 but it is not a 7. It is a 6.5 or 6. When i wear my other Sperrys they fit perfectly size 7. This is what happens when a company begins to mass produce . I expected a shoe that fits. I keep trying to stretch them. Not happy with this shoe at all.

Most people's feet grow over time.

I was a size 10 1/2 since I was 18. 30 years later, I bought a Brannock Device and measured my foot at home and according to it, I am now an 11. I don't think Sperry started making their shoes all 1/2 size smaller. I think your foot has spread out like most people's do over the length of time you are talking about. Based on my new measurement, I purchased two pair of size 11 Sperry Topsiders earlier this year and my feet finally have the space they have been craving.
I Saw These Shoes On The Rack. I LOVE Boat Shoes. The Color Looked Nice. The Way It Combined Colors Was AMAZING. So I Tried It On. Very Cushioned And The Fabric Is Soft, But Durable. My First Pair Of Sperry's. BUT, Obviously, Not My Last. ;)
Comfortable casual shoe but also a great addition to my non-slip shoe collection while on a sailboat. I like the fact I can throw these in the washing machine and they come out in one piece with just the right amount of fade and softening up of the canvas.
The shoes are very good.Just needs a a stronger glue and better stitching.

I have had my pair of Bahama's for almost 6 months now.These shoes have been through salt water,fresh water,and miles of walking.I use them for casual walk,if i'm at the beach,or if i'm going out with friends to shoot some pool.I'm actually surprised that these shoes have been this long lasting.Sadly,the glue has been worn out.If these shoes had a stronger long lasting glue.Then I would of probably rated them to be perfect. Overall,shoes are comfortable,stylish,and good.Totally recommend them.So Sperry,don't change anything about the Bahama lace.Just use a stronger glue,and better stitching to keep everything intact.
My ex-girlfriend got me these in Navy and Taupe, I had been wanting some boat shoes for quite some time now and these are perfect! My first Sperry's and I love them. They are so comfortable and match with basically all my jeans and shorts. Love definitely not my last pair!
These canvas shoes are good looking, substantial, comfortable, and come great colors. I bought bright blue and have received many compliments. I have classic leather Sperrys as well, but these are my new favorites. They run a tad large.
I bought these for my boyfriend in his usual size (12) and they were way way way to big. I paid to ship them back and re-ordered a new pair (size 11). He tried them on and it seemed that his foot took up the whole shoe but they still slipped off the back of his feet. Needless to say, I will not be buying these again.
I bought these for the cool red sole and it's thickness. I have had them a couple of months and unfortunately I cannot recommend them. Having Sperrys for the last 40 years, I never thought they would produce a 2 eye that are impossible to slip on with the laces tied. The suede is so thin it always balls up when you put your foot in and because of the thin tongue the laces really dig into the top of your foot. If they are laced normally snug, it really hurts. So, beware if you want a slip on this is not it. Even if you are willing to treat them as lace ups the pressure on the thin tongue hurts. Love the sole, if they would put a classic leather upper on it, it would be great.
I bought these as a Christmas gift for my son. He loves them. I bought 1 size smaller after reading other reviews and they fit perfectly. I think it is hyterical that kids are wearing these again. Being a teen in the 80's these were the look but with no socks. My son wears them with midcalf black socks which to me is gross!
