Thank you for your feedback.
Now I have given this item as a birthday gift for my husband and he is now enjoying the comfort of it.
The fit of the sperry boat shoe was, as expected, very good.
The size, fit, and coloring were all just as expected.

    It takes about 10 hours or so to break this pair of shoes in. And they are comfortable once this is done. I personally got another probably 20-30 hours worth of wearing these until they completed started to suck. They are made cheap and the insoles have came unglued and folded up in both shoes. Less than impressed considering the money I spent on these. I received these on April 24th, and haven't even worn them since the end of May.

    The fit of the sperry boat shoe was, as expected, very good. What I immediatly noticed however, was that the shoe quality was not what it used to be. The leather is thinner and not as well finished as in my previous sperry top-siders. But most important to me, the shoe liner, was not up to par. Previous purchases had full foot leather shoe liners. This is important because if you tend to wear the show without socks you will often pull up the liner when removing your shoes. The new shoe liner is a half liner, not all leather and without the former quality that I was used to.
    Sperry, charge a bit more perhaps but maintain the quality. Thanks from a former top-sider fan

    Had these shoes for 2 months and they are tearing at the seam. don't recommend these shoes to anyone. I take care of them, no running, no dirt ever touches them, my feet are slim, but yet they rip.

    I would gladly pay a lot more to get these made to a better quality like they always have been. My other top siders used to feel great on my feet without needing to be broke in. I had hoped that after I wore these for a while they would break in and feel better. But they still feel like leather cardboard. The leather they use now isn't soft like before and it is feels thinner than before. The soles are thinner and more rigid. One of the great features about these shoes used to be that the inside liners fully lined the whole shoe and were of very high quality. So these shoes didn’t stick to your feet when if your feet was damp.

    I'm disappointed that a product that used to sell based on quality was made into junk. I also don't see these lasting like before. I have three pairs of these before I ordered these. One is well over 10 years old and still going but it's past time to retire. My other two are looking dated. I guess I'll take them in and have them refurbished and dyed and keep them as long as I can. I can only hope the manufacturer will decide to return to marketing to people that want a quality product!

    Size: 10 D(M) USColor: Sahara Verified Purchase
    The Sahara color is much lighter than in pic, and looked worn and ragged after 3 days to high school on my teen son. They have zero insoles (see photo) and under that is a cheap piece of thin leather with a hole in it. He has to wear thick white socks so they don't hurt his feet. They faded and sagged immediately and I've polished them many times with leather conditioner to make them decent, it only lasts one day. He has worn them for only 3 weeks and they look awful. He wanted some Sperry topsiders so bad, it was disappointing but they are so popular at his high school. So.... we ordered the same style in Buck/Brown and he hasn't worn them yet but they look much better made leatherwise and appearancewise. I'll review those after they are worn. I am going to yank out the insoles and add Dr. Scholls custom orthotics from the machine at the drugstore.... Pic on left is Sahara worn in and pic on right is buck/brown new. Boys don't ask for much but the few things they want should make them feel good about themselves.

    I was extremely unhappy even at first when I received the shoes and saw that the insole only extended to the mid point of the shoe. It reduced support and made the inside feel rough and not very comfortable. I wore them for a time over the summer and the sole on both has split in the mid point of the front. I had owned Topsiders from Sperry before and they lasted for years, dealing with salt water from my sailing and other activities.

    It will be a long time before I can be convinced to buy a Sperry product again. They have obviously totally taken quality out of the equation.

    It's disappointing that the Sahara color looks as light as it does in the photo in Amazon, but in person the color is way darker.

    Bought these to replace a 10 year old pair of Sperry's. I also have a "Dress" pair that are approx. 5 ish years old. They are both the same size 11 W. This pair was more snug right from the start but seem to be breaking in well enough. The thing is as a long time Sperry wearing boat owner I notice the material in the sole that piece from the heel to just past the instep in the bottom of the shoe is no longer the quality leather that my older Sperry's are made of. The feel is cheaper and the edges are curling after only a few days of light wear as I'm breaking them in gently. I'm very disappointed, I pay for quality and Sperry has let the customer down. Next time I will not exclude "other brands".
