    Do Better

    I’ve gone through a few pairs of these over the last 20 something years, always loved them. This last pair the quality was anything but good. Overall they feel cheap and like many other reviews here they broke in the same spot, where the sole attaches to the toe. I was going to buy a replacement pair figuring it was just a one off thing, but after seeing enough recent reviews I decided it’d be smarter to find a different brand.

    Not what they used to be.

    Not what they used to be. The stitching at the front of the sole comes away/decays and leaves the front unattached from the leather shoe. I've worn Sperry Top Siders for years and the last two pairs have both done this. What has changed?

    Where are the oh so soft fit like a glove shoes?

    I've been buying Sperrys for many years, usually in store until they became hard to find. My last ones, one of the 'fish' lines, are amazing. These however have a rock hard insole, and the leather is very light without being soft. I am very shocked as usually they fit like a glove and are so squishy comfy. They look nice and are light, and the sizing is right on, but certainly don't feel the way they used to :(

    Junk !!!!not the same shoe I used 2buy for 30 ye

    I bought two pairs in the last two years and are falling apart. What happened to the shoes? I remember 30 years ago the last forever and you could walk from miles comfortably not comfortable anymore and the soles are cheap. The leather is cheap. The soles are thinner and softer, they look thick on the outside but inside if you peeled it back, it’s thin. I found a pair of old ones the thrift store. Another pair I’m going back to a thrift store. 30 years ago everyone at my prep school. And love them ever since until the last couple years. What happened. I don’t mind if they’re made in China, but the specs have to be right. Did someone buy his company.? Don’t take my word for it. Look at the ratings lately.

    May not be leather at all!

    The description does NOT indicate that the Navy boat shoes are leather. I sent mine back the same day. These appeared to be a very poor grade leather, if leather at all. Ordered elsewhere and they were the exact poor quality.

    34 days in, shoe broke getting into car

    I bought this shoe exactly one month and 4 days ago. The shoe trim has now broken around the toe when I was stepping into my car. I thought these were good quality but maybe I had a faulty pair.

    Don't waste your money.

    What a waste of money. Only worn for 2 months. Trying to figure out a refund or replacement having used my Macy's AMEX for purchase. See the attempted scotch tape repair. (eye roll)

    2024 Cheaply made junk will give you nerve damage

    The images of soles cracking - Sperry has hollowed out the soles below the foot bed, where you can't see (but you'll eventually feel it alright). The sole appears a certain thickness from the outside, but if you feel around inside, along the edge in the toe box and around the heel, you'll find the sole is about half as thick. Call it cheapening the sole to squeeze a bit more money out of the gullible customer. The sole around the outside being a different thickness easily cracks off. There are also edges present inside where they've done this, between where they've dug out the sole and its original thickness. They glue a bit of leather over this transition to soften it, but you'll compact that down through simply wearing the shoe. Then the edges along where they've dug the sole out will press into the bottom of your foot. It's most pronounced along the front of your heel, right before your arch. According to my doctor, unknowingly, this edge has given me nerve damage on the underside of my foot. Who would have thought they'd have you walking on such garbage by design? If you feel a lump in front of your heel, take the shoes off and toss them. Or send them back.
