Horrible! I've been wearing Sperry Top-Siders for years and these are so dreadful in quality I suspect they are fake. They creased deeply upon the first wearing, the leather seemed faux, and after wearing them only three times they split at the seams! This is shocking considering I own pairs of Top-Siders that are half a decade old and still look practically new. I have no way of complaining about my order either. Don't buy these. Go to a reputable seller and buy the authentic shoe.
First of all it came very fast.
I've worn this style of shoe for years and love them. They last and last and hold their shape. I found this particular pair at a great price on Amazon. I'm going to continue to check out shoes on Amazon. Sometimes i go to the local stores and try on shoes I'm not familiar with, try them on, and then go home and look online.
I am with %100 certainty that the shoes I received are fake. The color is “off” & too dark, the stitching is wonky in places & not consistent Sperry quality, there are scratches & scuff marks all over both shoes, the bottom of the sole actually looks worn in places and the plaid foot bed doesn’t extend all the way up into the toe box area to look complete-meaning it ends abruptly right at the foot arch area. Very odd I must say! I mean, they smell like leather & they look somewhat real from afar, but even the box that they came in, I believe to be fake as well. I ordered a 9 Wide & was sent an 8.5 M & they are like a child’s size narrow! Again, very odd. Well done Amazon & Zappos. Over $100 spent on fakes. Why packages are not being inspected BEFORE they are sealed & shipped is beyond me. There is no excuse for this. This is not acceptable & I am livid to say the least.
I love Sperry A/O 2-Eye Boat Shoes! I always treat myself to a new pair every spring. A different color, of course. I had the gray boat shoes on my wishlist for a couple months. I'm too cheap to pay full retail price for anything. Insomnia and Prime worked well for me. I was checking my wishlist around 3:00 am. The shoes had dropped 46% in price since I added them to my wishlist. Time to buy! Sperry makes great shoes. The boat shoes are all leather including the laces. There is light cushioning from the heel to just past the arch. Sperry's tend to run narrow, but that works great for me. The 360 lacing system helps me snug up the shoe so my heel doesn't slip up and down. Very comfortable right out of the box. I do wear no show socks with them. Very excited about my new shoes, but sad because my collection of colors is now complete.
I honestly don’t even think that these were real Sperrys. My daughter has worn Sperrys to school for the last four years as part of her uniform. Figured I’d get ahead of the game and order these in June for her to wear for the school year starting in August. She wore them to school for exactly 6 days. On the sixth day, the lacing on one shoe came completely apart and on the second shoe started falling apart. Because I ordered them so early, I had already past the time of returning them, and I reached out via email to explain the situation and have never once been responded to. I order from Amazon on almost a daily basis and have for many years. This was absolutely by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. And especially with how expensive the shoes are, to spend over $100 and end up with six days of use for my sophomore in high school is absolutely ridiculous. I am not one to normally write negative reviews, but these shoes and the complete and total lack of customer service warranted this review.
I love Sperrys, I own anywhere from 6 - 10 pairs at any given time, and these fit nothing like my others. The blue (deerskin they said?) was half a sizer smaller than usual for me. Something about them also looked a bit weird. The top part of the shoe was arched more than I'm used to and the shoe in general looked a little bit jenky. The soles of the shoe looked unworn, but some of the packaging hadn't been replaced in the shoe (I could tell they've been tried on before) and the bottoms had what appeared to be some lightly aged cat hair attached to them. I do not own a cat and am pretty allergic to them, so that was a wee bit of a turnoff too.
I normally wear a size 9 in Sperry shoes and that's what I ordered in these. They were a tiny bit loose but I could tighten them with the ribbon very easily and they are very comfortable with no break-in needed. I wasn't sure that I would actually like a floral shoe as I thought it might be a bit corny but I actually like them a lot. The fabric is a Liberty print with small flowers on a black background but the leather and satin ribbon are a deep navy blue. I like the black/navy combo.
This are a waste of money, i returned them and had a refund. They were very stiff leather and the fit of them was really bad. I am a "normal" UK size 6 and always buy that size. These just didn't fit and were not of the quality i had expected.
I kept these after a long search for boat shoes of this description but am beginning to wish I hadn't. When they arrived they did look as expected and fitted reasonably well but they are not turning out to be nearly as comfortable as I thought they would be. They have an 'unfinished' crude feel to the insides and the laces are very short for tying. Also there was nothing in the box about how to care for them so I have no idea what sort of polish to use. I just hope I get it right when they need cleaning!
These are beautiful shoes. I had my heart set on a pair of Sebago's, but after a little research saw that Sperry's were the true originals. I absolutely love that founder, Paul Sperry, was inspired to make the nonslip soles by carving grooves in them after watching his dog run effortlessly on ice- and subsequently inspecting his paws to reveal his secret. As I have both a passion for dogs and the sea these are clearly the shoes for me. I would recommend to anyone. Incredibly comfortable- more so than my Chathams, classic style, good quality- and amazingly only £34 (I got lucky with the price reduction on my shoe size).
I'm not entirely convinced by the quality of these shoes. Having bought a pair in America, and subsequently losing one to the dogs, I was keen to buy a new pair.
Shoes were exactly what we wanted but Amazon sent wrong size ie 9.5US instead of 9.5UK so fit was too small
