“STICKS LIKE A BARNACLE”
The very first Sperry Top-Sider shoe was created in 1935 to fulfill the need for better gripping soles to handle the wet and slippery boat decks. The result was a huge success, and it quickly grew from being the solution to a problem to one of the official shoes of the United States Navy. When the Kennedys were spotted donning the iconic Authentic Original shoes in the 1960s, the Sperry brand became an overnight sensation, and America has been in love with having the same active nautical life and style ever since.
Now, with eyewear taking center stage in the fashion industry, Sperry Top-Sider is jumping on the boat. Staying true to its roots, Sperry created a line of sunglasses and eyeglasses that’s vintage Americana and is poised to make Sperry a household name in eyewear.
Every pair of eyeglasses and sunglasses in the Sperry Top-Sider eyewear collection features unique detailing that embodies the active nautical lifestyle. From the signature grommets to the iconic sailboat and the anchor and knot design, every little detail will instantly bring you back to those blissful summer days at the cape. All frames come in a Sperry exclusive sail cloth case with magnetic closure for both convenience and protection. In each pair of eyewear, Sperry gives you a simplistic classic prep style that’s paying homage to a time when happiness came from merely being out on the open waters.
