Homage to Three Originals
Seafarer, trailblazer, and innovator Paul Sperry sailed headfirst into life, and he built the shoes for it.
What began in 1935 as ingenuity, effortlessly became a shoe legacy.
The Cloud Collection celebrates three iconic Paul Sperry shoes: The CVO Sneaker, The Authentic Original Boat Shoe, and The Captain’s Oxford. These styles riff off their ahead-of-their-time designs with new takes on materials and treatments that feel familiar and fresh.
The Authentic Original
Paul Sperry's design, now synonymous with the term "boat shoe", is also known as the Authentic Original, or just the A/O. With its classic moccasin construction and iconic 360 degree lacing, the A/O is re-imagined here in new colors and materials for style with a sense of adventure.
Not just for the Boats
Sperry’s are worn far & wide from land to sea. Here I showcase my Authentic’s in an urban setting paired with wool suit separates from Indochino layered with a Kollar Clothing denim jacket and a trim dress shirt & tie from The Tie Bar. Lastly, I topped it off with a handmade Bailey hat.
