The Deck Shoes Story
Deck shoes should be a part of every self respecting man's wardrobe, comfortable stylish and practical, they are available in a multitude off colours and generally in leather or suede.
Two of the best brands out there hail from the USA and with a combined history of over 190 years they offer superior products which are manufactured using tried and tested production and hand finishing, Sperry and Sebago are synonymous with the New England lifestyle and between them they have captured the essence of casual footwear with the added bonus of practicality.
Paul Sperry had personal experience of the importance of non sip souls on deck and so started his long and ambitious quest for a solution. One day in 1935, after watching his dog dart effortlessly across the ice on a cold Connecticut day, he was inspired to carve grooves – like those on his dog's paws – into the bottom of a rubber sole. In that moment of inspiration, the world's first boat shoe was born.
Both Sperry and Sebago pride themselves on craftsmanship and special feature that improve performance, details like non slip souls and the anti corrosive eyelets from Sebago ensure the shoe can endure the corrosive effects of the salt and all that life has to show at them, equally at home in the city and countryside deck shoes are now a staple in mens wardrobes around the globe.
