The Sperry Top-Sider is said to have been invented after Paul Sperry wanted to create a shoe that mimicked the pads of his dog, who was adept at walking on wet surfaces without slipping. Now, although I don’t spend much time sailing myself, I can’t help but find myself slipping into my own pair of Topsider’s throughout the spring, summer, and fall when I want something that is a little more casual then the ballet flat and offers the comfort of a tennis shoe. This navy/plaid version is prepster, which I find myself embracing for my work look this summer.
The bonus of being on sale due to Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is tempting me even more. Are you wearing boat shoes this summer?
