Paul Sperry invented the original boat shoe in 1935, when he noticed that his dog did not slip on the rocking deck of his sloop. Mimicking the grip of paws, Mr. Sperry crafted a shoe with a sole capable of retaining its hold on the boat deck, come harbor or high water.
You may already know that you need at least one pair of Sperrys in your life. It’s a matter of fact that there is nothing more preppy than boat shoes. Sperry happens to have some of the finest boat shoes on the planet. But did you know that Country Club Prep is the place to get them? We carry a huge selection of Sperrys for both women and men, all featuring the brand’s signature stitching and divine comfort. Naturally, we have the Authentic Original 2-Eye Boat Shoe in a ton of colors, all featuring hand-sewn construction, rustproof lacing eyelets and the ultra-comfy EVA heel cup.
Sperry also offers sandals for men and women — the boat thong sandals are complete with non-marking rubber outsoles, so as to avoid scuffing up that freshly-oiled teak boat deck. Whether on or off the boat, every prep’s gotta have their duck boots, and Sperry knows it. With their rawhide barrel lacing, you’ll never have to worry about wet laces dragging in the muck and they will keep your feet warm, toasty and on trend, no matter the weather. We at Country Club Prep love each and every one of these shoes, and are proud to be carrying on Paul Sperry’s preppy legacy by bringing them to you.
