In 1935, Paul Sperry invented the boat shoe. 75 years later our American Originals have been infused with 21st century fashion. The result: the Authentic Original collection. Classic comfort and enduring style are still inherent in modern updates to a timeless design.

I got a blue one, and it is very comfy and cute. Color is brighter blue than men's. Since i only worn this for a week, i can't say the quality yet, but it is a very well made shoes. I have never known top sider before but it definitely gave me a wonderful impression.

Review 3 for Men's Authentic Original Burnished Boat Shoe
Comfortable and good looking. A safe bet for many outfits.

Would definitely recommend these shoes (particularly the gray ones) to anyone looking for safe, stylish, and comfortable footwear. They are holding up well, don't easily scuff or display wear and tear, and have overall been very satisfying. Could be slightly more comfortable, but I'm sure others find them to feel better than I feel them to be. In either case, sometimes you have to sacrifice total comfort for a great look. Undoubtedly a good choice.

Review 6 for Men's Authentic Original Burnished Boat Shoe
I had to buy a whole new trailer for transport, as my old one was WAY too big. Very comfortable on the foot, but once I got in the water, they sunk like rocks. I had never used a flat hull design, and they took on water almost immediately. "Boat shoe" is really an ambitious statement on this product.

I ordered these shoes for my husband for his birthday and he loves them! He likes how the gray goes with so much and often tells me how comfortable they are. I would definitely buy him another pair in another color too!
Review 11 for Men's Authentic Original Burnished Boat Shoe
The shoes look great, and match several different styles. You can wear them with all sorts of jeans, khakis, slacks, etc and they look like tailored to match. If you like white-soled shoes, this is definitely the way to go. The quality is also very high. I wear them a lot, and so far they've shown no visible signs of wear and tear. I also like the way they are breaking in; I have a fairly wide foot, and the leather has enough give in it after a few times wearing them to make the fit more comfortable. My only complaint (and it's probably not even fair to call it a complaint) is they aren't as comfortable as their Gold Cup line of shoes; unfortunately it's really not even close. The GC shoes are like walking on pillows, and their boat shoes are just kind of there. They're not uncomfortable by any stretch, they're just not noticeably comfortable like some of their other shoes. Overall I feel like the product is worth the purchase.

Review 14 for Men's Authentic Original Burnished Boat Shoe
These shoes were purchased for my 17 year old son. He picked them out and has worn them out several times. They look great with dressy jeans and with everyday casual. He loves the fit and the style! Another Sperry convert! Thank you for the super color selection and great fit - as always!
