Life Beyond Boat Shoes: Sperry Top-Sider

When I think Sperry Top-Sider, I think boat shoes, barbeques, and summertime. I love my rose gold metallic Sperry’s that I rock for a lot of the summer.

However, as I was browsing my local Nordstrom the other weekend, I picked up a pretty flat that caught my eye. It was leopard print (always a fave of mine), and looked comfortable and well-constructed. I was shocked when I looked inside the shoe and saw that it was made by the one and only Sperry Top-Sider.

From there I did some investigating on what Sperry has to offer besides their classic boat shoes. Yet again I was surprised by some of my findings! Sperry has a lot of good-looking flats and a nice selection of rain boots. While some of the shoes are a little bit on the pricey side, I definitely would consider purchasing some of them mainly based on their quality. Any company that makes boat shoes has to make sturdy winter and rain boots as well, right?

Here are some of my favorite Sperry-Topsider shoes that I found. While I can’t say if I would spend this amount of money on some of them, I can say that I might if they look cute on and are comfortable!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Cute Snow Boots

As I kid I loved snow days because it meant I had the whole day to play in the snow. Now, snow days seem to be a thing of the past and instead of playing in the snow, I end up getting stuck walking in it to class or work. My rain boots can’t handle the piles of snow that seem to sit on Boston sidewalks for weeks, so it’s time for some boots that are actually made for the snow.

Milly Boot: These boots from Bass Shoes are fun and playful in the cherry/navy combination. They’re six inches and made of rubber and leather. With a cute heart shaped brass buckle, these waterproof boots are sure to catch some attention. Get them at Bass for $96.75.

Women’s L.L. Bean Boots: These boots are water resistant and made of quilted nylon. I love the quilted look and think the thick faux-shearling polyster at the top makes them even cuter. They come in black, brown, and burgundy/brown. You can find them at L.L.Bean for $94.00.

Jellypop Women’s Amil: I like these boots best in the tan color because they’re neutral and can be worn with anything. Made of faux leather at the top, they have a splash and snow guard to protect you while you’re out in the winter weather. If you want these boots, head to Famous Footwear where they’re $69.99.

Sperry Top-Sider Shearwater Booties: I love these boots because they have the quilted look, along with leather laces. They come in a variety of colors such as black, brown, dark brown/red plaid, and tan/dark brown. They are waterproof and come with cushioned micro-fleece lining for added comfort weather protection. You can find them here for $118.00.

Watch Out Puddles: 7 Pairs of Jumpin’ Rain Boots

Spring has officially arrived! I always get so excited for the start of spring as it is my favorite season. I love seeing smiling people out and about enjoying the above freezing temperatures. One aspect of spring I seem to continually block out of my memory though is the constant rain. They say April showers bring May flowers, and I do love flowers, but the rain isn’t always fun to walk around in.

I live in my rain boots during the rainy seasons. They keep my feet warm and dry. What more could you ask for? Some people think rain boots are ugly, but I have scoured the stores and found a handful of rain boots I think you will enjoy; there is something for everyone.

1.  Steve Madden Tsunami Boots, $79.00


With a decorative ankle strap buckle combined with a contrast color stripe surrounding the zippers, these are far from your typical rain boot. You won’t have to worry about matching your rain boots with your outfit, as these look like casual everyday boots.  They are available in either black, navy, olive or red.

 

2.  Hunter Original Tall Boot, $125.00

Lately, everywhere I look I see Hunters. Word has it that they are very durable and comfortable. There are so many cute colors to choose from so whatever your color preference is, they probably have it.

 

3.  Hunter Turks, $95.00

For those that don’t love rain boots, but want a cute waterproof flat, these are the way to go. There are six color choices.

 

4.  ZouBaby Women’s Customize Boots, $89.00

You will never have to worry about wearing the same boots as someone else, with these boots. ZouBaby embroiders your own personal monogram on your boot. The boots are black, but you can pick from a variety of colors for your monogram thread color.

 

5.  Coach Pixy Rain Boot, $108.00

6.  Target’s Merona, Zaney Polka Dot Rain Boots, $24.99


Target has a wide variety of rain boots; from fun and funky to plain solid color boots.  This is just one of their many choices. All the rain boots range from about $17.99- $32.99 making them totally affordable.

 

7.  Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Sadie, $80.00

I came across these on TheShoeMart.com. For those that just need to wear some sort of heel, here is your solution. They have taken the standard rain boot and added a little wedge heel.  The shoelace bow in front is also a nice added detail. These are available in yellow pink or navy.
