Sperry Top-Sider Boat Shoes

sperry

The boat shoe, not winter-wear per-se but probably the most versatile shoe in existence- it can be worn with shorts, jeans or with tailored trousers for a more relaxed approach. We like this burnished-leather option in an ‘amaretto’ hue from Sperry- world renowned for their hand-sewn and durable construction- they’re also stain and water-resistant with non-marking rubber soles for a secure stride and optimum shock-absorption. Priced at just £85, they represent exceptional value for money.
