It’s Sperry Time: Show Us Your Yacht

These two are like the cutest couple.

Q. Wanna know why I love Sperry Topsiders?
A. Because there is something comforting about American classics.

One of the few things that I am sure of is that I am not from the yacht set. Though I enjoy sitting by an occasional marina, cocktail in hand, my preference is solid ground. There is nothing more annoying than those events on boats that circle Manhattan, when after the first hour; I am ready to jump into the Hudson River, cooties and all. Give me trains, planes and automobiles any day.

What does this have to do with Sperry? Everything-ish. I love Sperry Topsiders because they are the quintessential weekender shoes. (Don’t you love that expression?) Sperry may have been pigeon holed as a yachter’s sneaker, but cool guys can sport these men’s equivalent of ballet flats in the city plenty. Take this guy (yes, please) who is smarting in style with his high-top Sperry’s with effortless aplomb—and with Olivia Palermo as his accessory, to boot. Now I am not saying that if you wear Sperry Topsiders, you will get the socialite, but it’s surely worth a try. They are hip, affordable, and make you look like you own a yacht, so buy a pair now on Tobi.
