The CVO (or Canvas Vulcanized Oxford) is a classic style, but this CVO features mesh uppers for superior breathability and draining.
As quick as they are to drain and dry, you'd think Sperry Flex Deck CVO Ultralite Sneakers aren't fond of water. That's where you'd be wrong. These deck shoes get their kicks by taking care of your feet whether you're sailing, powerboating, paddleboarding, kayaking or just hanging out around the water. You might even say they're at their best when it couldn't get any wetter. How can we be so sure? Just read about all their features below and decide for yourself. Imported.
The Uppers: Lightweight, breathable and flexible, the hydrophobic (water-repelling) mesh uppers dry almost as fast as they get wet. You're going to get your shoes wet if you spend any time on a boat or participate in activities in, on or around the water. No one ever said they had to stay wet though. Adjustable bungee laces keep them securely on your feet, but allow them to be pulled on or off with ease.
Vulcanized Construction: That's where the rubber meets the...er...mesh! Using high temperatures, the uppers are securely bonded to the outsoles for a classic look that's also strong and durable.
The Midsoles: Sperry uses perforated ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam in the heels and midsole footbeds for cushioning, drainage and zero water absorption. And since they run the length of the shoes, these cushioned midsoles provide all-day, under-foot shock absorption as well.
Hydro Grip™ Rubber: This stickiest of outsoles gives you maximum on-deck traction, agility and stability. The wetter the better.
Adaptive Wave-Siping™: Tiny, wavy slits in the rubber outsoles, in combination with larger and deeper wavy grooves, disperse water away from the soles and give you incredible grip. Whether your footing is wet or dry, these outsoles will help prevent you from becoming separated from the deck of your boat.
Non-Marking: In addition to their nonslip properties, the soles won't make ugly black marks on the deck of the boat like ordinary shoes. That's particularly important if scrubbing ugly black marks off the deck isn't a part of your ideal boating outing.
