Sperry Top-Sider has been making luxury footwear since 1935 and has managed to establish itself as one of the USA`s most iconic nautical brands. The inventor of the brand, eponymous Paul Sperry, is responsible for inventing the world`s first boat shoe, and it still remains today. In 2012, their range is vast, eclectic and brimming with class – I had no idea so many different types of boat shoe existed!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of the A/O`S in Oatmeal (as seen below) which retail at £80 from Asos.com.
One of the key assets of the Sperry Top-Sider brand is it`s allegiance to quality. The boat shoes I tried were crafted from leather that is gorgeously soft, unlike most other boat shoes, and as a consequence they were extremely comfortable to wear.
Aside, from their evident quality, they look stunning! The pair I tried came in faded tan leather with cream sole and adorable brown laces – there is only one word for them – classy. I am not normally a fan of shoes but these are sublime, and have quickly become my favourites! I can`t wait for the spring and summer just so I can wear them!
