Uptrend for Sperry Top-Sider Water Performance Footwear

Men's Lace Up

Nautical Life Style Brand not Just for Massachussetts Sailors Anymore!

Paul Sperry invented the first boat shoes for sailors back in 1935.  Original wearers were a dedicated breed of boat owners and sailors  from Massachussetts or New Jersey who chose them for their non-marking rubber out sole for ultimate wet/dry traction on deck.  Now however, the average wearer can not be classified.  These classic shoes are chosen for their stylish appearance, performance, quality and enduring comfort.  And who would have thought you can buy Sperry’s at a western apparel store JC Western in Jupiter and West Palm Beach carries Sperry Top-Sider brand footwear.

From laceless slip-ons constructed of high quality breathable cotton canvas to 2 eyed leather or suede lace ups with 360 degree lacing this footwear brand has remained consistent in quality and grown with the times when it comes to style.

For instance the New Bahama Chukka Suede (high-top style) is constructed of genuine  hand sewn TRU-MOC leather.  Something a teenage boy would go for and every outdoorsmens’ dreams of on his feet in rough terrain.  Many of  Sperry’s winter styles are lined with natural shearling  for warmth and comfort.  Some of the loafer styles come with kilte tassels and penny holders.  Others like their boat lug style or various rubber slip ons are excellant for wet weahter.  The Sperry list seems never ending.  Wetland high style boots keep feet warm and dry in cold wet conditions. You name it Sperry now carries it.  It is one of few footwear brands that you can find a shoe or boot that satisfies the entire family.  Shoes for men, women, children, even toddlers.  Conservative styles to trendy sandals, moccasins, loafers, boots, slip-ons, lace-ups even a completely submersible shoe boot.

Compression molded foottbeds with wave contours add comfort to every style.  Sperry’s Gold Cup collection takes casual sport living to a higher level.  At the dressier end they manufacture Oxfords and Wing tips to the more casual wearer’s appeal they manufacture more sporty booties with metatarsal pods (sensory feedback information from the ground through your feet to your brain).  Antishock and vibration technology really gives Sperry athletic shoes a leg up when it comes to lessening the shock affects and vibration through their Lateral Dispersion System ™ .  Son-R technology actually allows you to feel (improve sensory feedback) think (know where your feet are) react (maximize stability and agility).

If you are like me and have not worn a pair of Sperry’s since your were in high school in New Jersey.  It is time you tried a pair on again.  Visit JC Westernin Jupiter or West Palm Beach for their in-store selection.  Or shop online anytime at
