The boat (top-sider or deck) shoe has been around for over 70 years. Typically made of leather and featuring a soft white sole to avoid marring or scratching a boat deck. The original boat shoe was created by Paul Sperry in 1935. This casual shoe has not lost its classic appeal. The popularity and classic charm has led other designer’s to pursue their own flavor of the classic top-sider.
This shoe can be worn when a sneaker just will not fit the bill. They can be worn on the deck of your yacht, during a relaxing walk in the park, or any occasion that requires a smart look without three stripes or the swoosh.
