In 1935, Paul Sperry, born in a Connecticut family with long sea-faring tradition, got its inspiration on creating the worlds’ first “boat shoe”, from watching his dog effortlessly walking across the ice. Sperry had spent years of trying to create the perfect non-slip shoe without any success, until the grooves exiting on the dogs’ paws prevented them from slipping gave him the answer to his long unsolved problem. The shoes fast became popular among the Cruising Club of America members in the 40’s to end up in becoming one of the official shoes of the US Navy during the World War II.
In the 1960’s, worn by the Kennedy’s, the Sperry Top – Sider shoes and sneakers were established as an iconic element of America’s active nautical life and classic style.
The success story came to its pick during the 1980’s-1990’s, after worn by Dennis Conner, who led the America’s Cup Team to victory, wining back the trophy for the US, in 1987. Sperry Top-Sider became, then, the official shoe of the America’s Cup, representing ever since the classic prep style, as well as a legacy of good taste.
