Our Brands > Sperry

With nautical style and performance-driven features, Sperry inspires a sense of surf, sand and adventure.

Sperry shoes have been favourites since 1935 when sailor Paul Sperry nearly lost his life to a slippery boat. After observing his dog staying happily upright regardless of a slippery surface, he carved grooves on the sole of a shoe which imitated the grooves on his dog’s paws – and the very first boat shoe was born.

The Sperry brand is for people drawn to the soul of the ocean. Loafers, oxfords, sandals and boat shoes offer casual, classic style with unprecedented levels of comfort; Sperry also features a range of performance-driven boat shoes for sailors and active boating enthusiasts.

Inspired by the ocean’s sense of limitless adventure, some styles are classic and understated, while others are bold and playful. With Sperry’s signature 360° adjustable lacing system, shoes can mould to a customer’s individual foot shape.

Incorporating casual relaxation with an eagerness for travel and discovery, the Sperry brand has a wide and varied fan base.

Accent Group has been distributing the Sperry brand in Australia since 2014. It is sold in major department stores including Myer and David Jones, as well as independent retailers.
