Sperry: More Than 75 Years of Nautical Style

March 30, 2012 at 12:00 am Leave a comment

Sperry has long been a reliable shoe, I mean, really long. The first Sperry Top-Sider was designed in 1935 by avid boatsman Paul Sperry who created an innovative non-slip technology (inspired by watching his dog trounce on slippery surfaces with ease) that was later adopted by the Navy.

Today’s Sperry merges that age-old function with forward thinking fashion, and the brand recently unveiled their new slogan, A Passion for the Sea. Whether searching for a weather-resistant Welly, traditional top-sider, fabulous flat, wonderful  wedge, sassy sneaker, sexy sandals, or best-selling boat shoe, the men’s and women’s styles are as diverse as they are divine.

This spring, designer Michelle Smith of Milly fame (interviewed on Newport Stylephile here) collaborated with Sperry for a limited collection big on color. See the collection on Stylist.com by clicking here.

Just like the daffodils across town, new Sperry 2012 designs are popping up at Helly Hansen, Island Outfitters and Sole Desire.  Get ’em while they’re hot!
