85 Years Of Common Ground

Updated: Nov 13

“A wet deck was such a dangerous thing” said Paul Sperry.

Sperry is the story of an iconic American brand. Fashion and sustainability has been rooted within the brand since 1934, when Paul Sperry fell off the deck of his sailboat. He set out to design a non-slip boat shoe, which led to the birth of an array of styles that would accommodate lifestyles and seasons to come. For men, women, and children, he inspired everyone to find common ground.

Inspired by his dog’s grooved paws, which never seemed to slip, he carved grooves into a rubber sole then glued that to a canvas upper. The lugged rubber outsole with molded Wave-Siping™ known as the mother of invention provides no-slip traction. It has become an iconic American shoe, with partnerships in style with artists like John Legend. As of late, in celebration of 85 years of Sperry’s iconic and true innovation, and preparing for the fall season, I highly recommend their Avenue Duck boots. It serves as the quintessential item for a forever changing environment.


I chose the tan/brown, which fits true to size built with essential features and quality materials to provide comfort and sure footing in any conditions. Therefore, I spend less time worrying about the climate while spending more time enjoying each experience in #sperrystyle 

Ready for anything, the Men’s Avenue Wool Duck boot is moderately priced at $109.95 and is available in Tan/Brown, Grey/Black, Olive/Brown and solid Brown. Four options thoughtfully designed with contrasting wool details adding texture and durability to such a fashionable shoe.

Key features include:

  • The lightweight duck boot that’s ready for anything. Looking for variety, also try the Saltwater Duck boot for Men, Women’s &Kids.

  • Waterproof EVA shell and premium wool upper keeps feet dry and warm in wintry conditions.

  • Non-marking, lugged rubber outsole with molded Wave-Siping™ provides no-slip traction.
