You know Sperry Top-Siders.
Of course you do.
There’s a picture of them in the dictionary under “boat shoe.” You can wear them anywhere, from schooners to rooftop bars. And they pair with tweed and seersucker alike.
Well, now they’re unveiling something called the Gold Cup Collection—a fall arsenal of boaters, saddle shoes and chukkas perfectly timed for any autumnal adventures on the high seas or otherwise. Naturally, since originating the boat shoe in 1935, they’ve picked up a few tricks along the way, so you can expect even more ruggedly refined touches, like deerskin lining and some advanced technology to increase the grippiness of the soles in this new line.
Never underestimate the importance of grippiness.
