A long, long time ago I was watching a video on Youtube and in the video they showed shoes from a brand called Sperry. I fell in love with the shoes that very second and I have wanted them ever since. After a couple of years I finally felt like it was the right time to buy myself a pair and that’s exactly what I did. I bought a pair of Sperry Top-Siders and today I’m going to tell you guys everything about these shoes! If you’re interested in finding out more about my new shoes and if they really are that amazing, make sure you continue reading!
Sperry shoes come in many, many different shapes and forms. For me the most important factors were the shape: I wanted the classic boat-shoe shape and the colour. I have debated for a long time whether I should get the white ones ore these, but I ended up going for these beige ones. They are called Sperry Top-Siders Hatch and the colour is called Beige. The laces in this pair are medium brown and made out of a nice and soft fabric.
The shape of the shoe is one of the reasons why I fell in love with them. Back in the day boat shoes definitely weren’t my thing and I’m still not all about them, but this particular version is just incredibly beautiful in my opinion. The shoe has a very simple shape but it also has something unique to it that gives it this really classy look. The bottom part reminds me of All Stars, but the top reminds me of something more classy and a little preppy if you will.

The colour or the design of the shoes is quite unique compared to the other Sperry shoes. It has this hatch design on it and that’s not something all of their shoes have. I think this hatch pattern adds a beachy look to them, something fresh and summery, but it’s still classy and elegant enough for my taste.
The hatch design comes in a couple different shades. I chose for beige because, first of all, I don’t have beige shoes yet (I believe) and, second of all, because I think it’s a very universal colour. A colour that could go with every single outfit. And that definitely is a quality I look for in shoes. I’m not someone who has 10 pairs of shoes, I have a couple that I wear all the time. Therefore they just have to be wearable.
Moving on to the quality of the shoe and how they feel on the feet. Quality wise I’m really impressed by these shoes. It might just be because I have been wearing a lot of light-weight shoes like the Adidas Lite Racer and even though the quality of those are great too, it just feels different. These Sperry shoes have a certain weight that makes you think they are very high-quality and the material feels very sturdy and just great.
I also think that the details are part of what makes these shoes feel great. You can tell that someone has paid attention to the details on these shoes. And with that I mean that there are no imperfections in the shoes when it comes to the materials or the stitching. Everything is perfectly fine.
Lastly let’s talk about how they feel on the feet. These shoes are comfortable, super comfortable, but the first time I wore them my heels did start to hurt a little around the part where the shoe stops. This is just a matter of days and then your feet are used to the shoes and they are incredibly comfortable again.
I bought the shoes in size 38, which is one size below the size I regularly wear. I decided to go for that size because it is very important that these shoes fit very well because the laces aren’t going to make sure you don’t slip out of the shoes completely. Of course they do function, but if the shoe is too large or wide your feet will slip out of them while walking and that’s not what you want.
Overall I’m in love with these shoes. I love how cute and preppy they look and I love that I can wear them with any outfit. I really love the design and I can really appreciate the quality of the shoe. It feels so well made and the materials that are used to make this shoe look absolutely stunning. Yup, these are definitely my favourite shoes of all time and I’ll definitely buy another pair in the future!
And that concludes this post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you have ever heard of the brand Sperry and let me know what you think of these shoes!
