Sperry Top-Sider 75th Anniversary deck shoe: Back to square one

Sperry invented the deck shoe. The first ones looked just like this apparently. Made in America, soft grey suede, begging to make a couple of feet comfortable and slip resistant.

Not much has changed in 75 years, it must be said. Apart from the fact that most of them are made in Asia these days.

A few thousand colour combinations and tweaked details later and they're back where they began, with this re-release of the originals.

Judging by how good they look, they needn't have bothered with all the rest.
