The problem with these shoes now that they are no longer american made is that if you get them wet ( they are deck shoes and should be made to get wet) they bleed dye all over your feet. The metal grommets through which the side lacings pass are no longer solid rings and they bend outward creating sharp metal thorns that will cut your opposite leg if you should brush your shoe against it (which happens frequently when climbing ladders, etc. aboard a boat).
Bottom line; if you are buying shoes to wear where they will never get wet and you don't intend to use them as actual deck shoes they may be OK. If you intend to wear them while sailng or boating stay away from these shoes.
I mourn the passing of what I had considered an americam icon.
Then I took them on a boat of all things, and after a couple of days sailing, not even getting completely wet they started to deteriorate even more. The leather became completely discolored and the insoles are all curled up.
After this I emailed Sperry to let them know about the issues with the shoes. I got a fast response saying they would take them in and if they were defective replace them. I responded only to have them ignore me. I tried responding again and got the same email making me think that this is an automated response and not something they intend to follow through on.
After owning my previous pair for almost 2 years and having them held up amazingly well I was thoroughly disappointed in what Sperry is willing to sell with their logo on it these days. Stay away from these shoes, they are not worth the money anymore.
I can't recommend these shoes enough - they're comfortable, look great, and well made. My only disclaimer is that the minimal cushioning can result in some sore feet if you spend the entire day walking (i.e. while traveling). And ironically, for "boat shoes", wet traction on anything but a roughened surface is pretty poor.
