    Sperry was established by the eponymous Sperry, an avid sailor responding to the need for deck shoes that gripped on slippery surface. His invention of the “Top Sider” in 1935, soon took hold of the private sailing world and persists today. With his success, he branched out into the manufacture of gentlemen’s street shoes, of which this is an excellent example.

    With its Goodyear Welted double sole, hand nailed, McAffee style, dove-tailed, combination heel, full thickness scotch grain uppers and deerskin lining, this robust Norwegian promises both comfort and long life. Do not be misled; this is the old, great Sperry, not the Sperry of sneakers and deck shoes of today.

    I appreciate that for most people this is a relatively unknown brand but, if you will take my word for it, you will be getting tremendous value for the money. This Norwegian can compete with any and all on the modern market and puts most to shame.
