Where To Buy Sperry Boat Shoes

Before the advent of the modern boat shoe, sailors and boatmen alike struggled to maintain a firm foothold on the slippery decks of their boats. The shoes available to them were just not up to the task and as one can imagine this lead to frequent accidents, not to mention hilarious and embarrassing situations.

There are numerous ways to categorize boat shoes, but since the originals came from the U.S., I created a list of U.S.-Made American boat shoes that have a focus on quality and heritage, as well as a category for foreign companies, designer boat shoes, etc. US Made Boat ShoesCompanyWhere to BuyAverage Price in $QuoddyQuoddy MTO265YuketenStockists325Rancourt & CoRancourt Shop227Russell Moccasin Co.Russell Moccasin Co. - Custom Only255Eastland - Made in MaineEastland Shop295Oak Street BootmakersOak Street Shop262Sperry Made in MaineSperry Made in Maine300GokeyOrvis250Red Wing (not availabe in US)Redwing Germany215 Other Boat ShoesCompanyWhere to BuyAverage Price in $Made inSperrySperry Top-Sider75ButteroStockists360Made in ItalyTimberlandAmazon75N.D.C.Shopstyle255Tommy HilfigerTommy Hilfiger88SebagoSebago105Ralph LaurenRalph Lauren325Allen EdmondsAllen Edmonds115Dominican Republic

If your leather is stiff, good way to go about breaking in your new boat shoes is to get them wet. After all, they are meant to be worn around boats. Put on your shoes, get them wet and then let them dry wearing them. Others prefer to apply oil to their boat shoes until they are saturated. Then they wrap them in newspaper and let them dry in the shade. The oil will soften the leather which in turn will allow you to break them in without the pain. The Chromexcel leather has already undergone this softening process with natural oils, so you can definitely skip that step. Bear in mind, though, everything you do to break in your new shoes is done at your own risk.

I would like to endorse Sebago boat shoes. About five years ago, I was looking for a good boat shoe. After I read up on the different brands, I decided to check out Sebago. I visited the Sebago Store in Georgetown, Washington D.C. While I was looking, I bumped into a gentleman who was looking for his second pair. His first pair he had on and claimed they were twelve years old. I decided to go for it and buy a pair. From the first time I wore the Sebagos, they felt fantastic. There was no break in time needed. I have been wearing them for the last five years and absolutely love them. As long as Sebago continues to live up to my expectations, I will never try another boat shoe. I have also gone through quite a few pair of boat shoe socks, trying to find something that did not show and stayed on the foot. I finally found a set of Sperry socks from a Sperry store that met my expectation. The important factor was these socks where concaved or a bit canoe shaped. I believe this shape is the key to the socks not slipping off of my heels. Good Luck Gentlemen.

The exact model is the Sperry Gold Cup Authentic Original 2-Eye Rivingston Boat Shoe in the color Titan Tan, STS19319. Appropriate footwear for Bond, who has a Spirit Yacht sailboat in Jamaica when he's not working. The shoes can be spotted when James Bond is driving to Porto Antonio in Jamaica to meet with his CIA colleague and friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright).

About SperrySperry or Sperry Top-Sider is an American brand of boat shoe designed in 1935 by Paul A. Sperry. Sperrys, or Top-Siders, were the first boat shoes introduced into the boating and footwear markets.

First, boat shoes are made to fit and snug. Since these shoes were originally designed for sailors working on slippery decks, shoes that would easily come off can be dangerous. Until today, Sperry boat shoes are meant to have a snugger fit.

I'm a devout, dyed-in-the-wool classic Sperry enthusiast, by and large. From roughly daylight savings time until the first frost of fall, they are just about the only shoes I'll wear. And while I do spend enough time on boats to warrant this proclivity, I usually prefer to spend those precious hours unencumbered by footwear.

Boat shoes to boot, I'm curious to see how Sperry's Captain's CVO Bionic shoes last over time. At face value, they may look more like tennis shoes, but don't let the full-length lacing and new, blue treads fool you: They're boat shoes at heart, every bit as grippy and non-marking as their forebearers, though they are markedly lighter-weight.

Apart from being smarter than your average boat shoes (and maybe a little edgier, too), the Bionics can hack it just as well in the street, and, with slightly more beefed-up Ortholite insoles compared with the Original Boat Shoe, they're noticeably more comfortable, too. 041b061a72
