In 1935 Paul Sperry was inspired by his dogs ability to walk on ice, realising the small lines in the dogs pads were helping him to remain upright. Here the boat shoes was born . Sperry introduced a range of shoes for the boating enthusiast with non-slip soles. These shoes today are still worn by the boating community and other brands have joined the race for your money with more fashionable styles. Lyle and Scott, Timberland and Fred Perry are all brands that now produce boat shoes for the masses.

Boat shoes can be worn in a variety of situations while retaining that style of the moment. Boat shoes are a smart alternative to the likes of flip flops or light canvas style shoes. Boat shoes should be worn without socks. The leather in sole of the boat shoe allows for this, keeping your feet cool and comfy. Try and keep your boat shoes looking their best with a good wipe over every now and then. Regular cleaning of your boat shoe will ensure they have a longer lasting life.

All our boat shoes are hand crafted and waiting for dispatch, treat yourself to the latest summer style and the lowest summer price!
