                 Sperry Top-Sider is the original brand of boat shoe designed in 1935 by Paul Sperry, older brother of Armstrong Sperry. The Top-Siders were the first boat shoes introduced into the boating market.

         In 2012, Sperry, along with Keds, Stride Rite and Saucony, became part of Wolverine World Wide after a joint agreement with Blum Capital Partners and Golden Gate Capital acquired the Performance Lifestyle Group of Collective Brands for US$1.23 billion. This effectively makes Sperry a sister company of Sebago, their main rival.

          Sperrys were not originally meant to be worn with socks, however, it is becoming more acceptable in recent years. In the winter it is acceptable to wear with a wool-blend sock. Short neon or pastel colored socks or white ankle socks are popular to wear with Sperry’s by kids, tweens, teens and college students, and young adults.

          Well, I don’t even know what’s the price range for Sperry, ’cause I haven’t owned a pair once. But I think it will range to 5, 000- 8, 000 pesos if it was now the sister company of Sebago. I like Sperry Top Sider and wishing to have one pair soon. It’s perfect for a summer get away, very refreshing to wear and no need to wear socks.
