Sperrys are a type of shoe created by Paul Sperry in 1935. The Sperry company makes an array of footwear for men and women but is most famous for its "boat shoes," an athletic shoe that resembles a loafer but has a rubber sole, perfect for walking across the wet deck of a boat without slipping. A typical pair of Sperrys looks like a rugged brown loafer, with a lace of rugged rawhide leather woven around the perimeter of the shoe.
For Men and Women
Wear your Sperrys with casual outfits. Sperrys look great with jeans or shorts and a T-shirt or polo shirt.
Wear your Sperrys with dressier outfits that you would like to appear less formal. For men, Sperrys look great with khakis or chinos and sports coats. Women can wear Sperrys with simple cotton dresses, skirts and khakis.
Wear your Sperrys as a dressier alternative to flip-flops or sandals and a less formal alternative to loafers or heels. Sperrys are a great pick when you want to wear something in between formal and casual.
Wear special-edition Sperrys to evening events. Special-edition Sperrys come in brighter colors and interesting textures. Their distinctive look makes them perfect for clubs and parties.
