Rated 3 out of 5¬†by James Buyer beware: squeaky soles!
I'm at wit's end with these shoes. They look great, but there must be a manufacturing issue and/or quality control problem with this particular model. The first pair I ordered fit somewhat larger than my other pair of Sperry's, so I exchanged them for a half size smaller. The second pair's right shoe had an unbearably squeaky sole--more of a shrill scream than a squeak--so I exchanged them for another pair. That pair arrived this morning and, alas, the soles are squeaky! Sigh.

Rated 1 out of 5¬†by David Great looking shoes...that squeak :(
I've got a few pairs of the Sperry boat shoes from J.Crew that I love but these have a different construction which results in a loud squeak when you step. It sounds like you're stepping on a dog toy. I had this problem with one pair (left shoe) - after a cobbler couldn't fix it I exchanged it for a new pair and the left shoe of the new pair also squeaked! If you look under the heel insert you'll see that the leather is sewn together; my other Sperry boat shoes are a single piece of leather. I suspect this is why I keep having this problem but I couldn't fix it, so I returned the second pair. Bummer, they were really good looking shoes.

I grew up wearing all kinds of Sperry shoes, and this collaboration is fantastic. They fit well, wear comfortably, and make no blisters when you break them in without socks. Well designed, they have a soft footbed and the same non-slip soles you expect on Sperry shoes. They are familiar enough to have a classic look, yet just different enough to be unique in the crowd. They are also wearing like iron (I've worn them for some or all of every day since getting them a couple of months ago). They worked all summer, now I'm going to transition into fall by wearing them with chunky wool socks. Just really great shoes over all.

Great weekend shoes. I own several pairs and never can go wrong Sperrys.

I was searching for a Top-Sider that was made of a particular type of leather and color. I wanted the shoe leather and sole to be a dark brown color, because light color Top-Siders will start to look dingy when walking all over the city on a regular basis. Prior to this purchase, I purchased a similar style from another company. I was disappointed by the fit and stiffness of the leather, so I returned it. Although a bit pricey, I splurged and purchased this Top-Sider from J.Crew. I am extremely happy with my purchase. Good fit. The leather became soft and conformed nicely to my feet after a day or two (no socks). I highly recommend this product for those who crave both comfort and style.
