Product Description

Since its introduction by Paul Sperry in 1935, the Authentic Original® (A/O) has enjoyed immense popularity as both a functional boat shoe and good-looking casual footwear. Today’s A/Os have improved from the original by the addition of Sperry’s Full Active Comfort System, which includes a padded comfort wedge under the heel, EVA foam under both heel and forefoot for additional cushioning, a lighter, more flexible siped outsole and a leather sock liner. The shoe retains Sperry’s Top-Sider siped outsole, full-grain cowhide uppers, functional rawhide laces, and genuine handsewn moccasin construction. Imported.

 
  • Application: Performance
  • Uppers: Full-grain cowhide
  • Sole: Siped, non-marking outsole; Top-Sider grip
  • Closure type: Rawhide laces
  • Insole: EVA foam under heel and forefoot
  • Reinforcement: Padded comfort wedge under the heel

I have been wearing top siders for twenty + years. There's not much i haven't done in a pair. My daily pair is wet right now. From the farallones to the top of the sierras to the middle of the sacramento river i'm almost always in a pair of sperry top siders.

Either my foot has grown wider or Sperry is making their shoes narrower. I have purchased and returned two pairs before this one to find a basic Topsider that fits. Still, after two weeks the shoes are just now starting to stretch to fit more comfortably. Two years ago I bought a pair of Sperry sailing shoes, and they lasted only a year before the soles hardened, and using them on a boat was like walking on ice. Overall, Sperry's quality has declined measurably over the past several years.

    After many decades, still the best and my favorite shoe. Goes with about anything, sticks to wet surfaces like glue, and is crazy comfortable.

      after only one week of wearing these the 1/2 liner in the sole is beginning to curl up at the end under your arch. Not pleased with that but otherwise the shoe is comfortable.

      Comments about Mens Authentic Original Boat Mocs:

      I finally had to buy a new pair. The old ones were falling apart. Of course the were, they were fifteen years old and worn many times every week. Always when I am on my boat. Comfortable, safe with the non-skid sole, and look good. What can I say? They aren't the least expensive boat shoes, just the best boat shoes.

                  I LOVE these shoes. I wear them all the time, year round. I've been wearing these shoes for the past 32 years (no not the same pair!) and absolutely love them. I have them in several different colors, but also have some that look just like them except they're made by Sebago and the Sebagos are so uncomfortable they're almost painful to wear. The Sperry Top-Siders feel just right though and they last forever.
