With summer fast approaching, it’s only right we take some weather appropriate footwear out for a spin.
Enter Sperry‘s all-time classic Top-Sider Authentic Original 2-Eye model.
Born in 1895, Paul Sperry was an American inventor, businessman, photographer, and (perhaps most importantly) sailor.
In 1935 his quest for the perfect boat shoe came to an end with his ingenious Top-Sider model, which went on to become the official shoe of the US Navy during WWII!
We had a look at the A/O 2-Eye model in “classic brown”, and tried to bring em up to date a little by combining them with a contemporary camo pant.
The leather is top quality, super smooth and supple, and a pleasure on foot. The sizing is true, so stick with your usual shoe size, and forget about socks – they’re more comfortable without anyway!
