Get Wet...

These are pretty dope!!! An avid sailor, Paul Sperry observed that his dog Prince, a Cocker Spaniel, had the ability to remain agile and balance though the surface was covered with a new coat of New England snow. This led him to tinker with the idea in replicating an outsole much like a dog’s paw, with grooves and ridges to provide grip. In 1935, the Sperry Top-Sider was established. Since then, this American Original has outfitted countless sailor, outdoor enthusiasts, even now, a part of official uniform of U.S. Naval Academy.

Above is the newest Sperry Top-Sider x Band of Outsiders collabo featuring a revamped Chukka Boot. The shoe features tri-tone grey flannel, weaved in worsted wool for wearability and water repellency. Padded interior in pin-stripe design, each is hand sewn on top the classic Sperry sole in leather. Extremely limited in quantity and now available at selected retailers around the globe. Source
