I have worn Sperry boat shoes since the early 80s, I have many pairs and wear them almost daily. This is the first time I have not been happy with the fit. The fit is very loose -- and it gets worse as you wear them.

I'm not sure if it is because they toe panel is shorter than on the A/Os, or if it's the fact that the special "ortholite insole" is just enough thicker that your feet sit a little higher in the shoe so that the sides and heel don't come up as high on the foot as in a 'normal' Sperry. Whatever the cause I do NOT like how they fit and would NOT recommend them. If you do buy them, you should immediately wear them a few times for a 'real life' experience so you can learn in time if they will fit well after they adjust to your feet. Sadly I didn't realize they would get worse with each wearing so I missed the chance to return them by a couple of days.
I'll keep loving my other Sperrys, but these will get no love and would absolutely be returned if they could be.

These are cute shoes, and comfortable. But I didn’t realize they weren’t water-resistant treated like other Sperry’s. I’ve had a pair of Sperry’s boatshoes for seven years, I’ve worn them in rainstorms and through big puddles, and they come out looking beautiful all these years. But I bought this suede pair, got caught on vacation on a drizzly day the first time I wore them, and they became permanently water-stained. They also do not have the arch support feature of the Sperry’s boat shoes.

Cheap and flimsy cute but not cute enough for the support it doesn’t give ya. Like wrapping a rag around ur foot and walking.
Not ur typical sperry quality.
These r garbage

I've been seeing ads recently for Sperry Topsiders. I was reminded of high school, when they were in style but I didn't have a pair. I decided to make up for it now, but then discovered how high the regular price is. I was so pleased to find these on Amazon on sale. I was able to find the wide size i need and they fit just as expected. The leather is soft and they felt good the first time I tried them on.

The shoes are an absolute likeness of the photos. Very cute, colors are true with a comfortable cork insole. Sizing was just fine. I would give them a "5" if this is the look I was after. I was hoping for something less refined; which this shoe is! So due to my lack of sophistication, I returned them.

Cute! I love Sperry's but these are too wide and fit too loose even though they're my size.

These are sperry dupes made with inferior materials. Although comfortable to wear, these will probably wear down in a few months over use. Not waterproof, the material is pretty thin.

Shoe not quite up to sherry standard. This particular style was too wide and looked a little cheap. Almost like it was made in a hurry.

Produit identique à la photo, de bonne qualité et bonne grandeur
