Although the Sperry Top-Sider brand is more known for their boat shoes, the manufacturer has successfully expanded to other styles without leaving their authentic boat shoe designs especially the signature non-slip soles.
One of today’s hottest in fashion footwear is the chukka boot. Famous several decades ago, it has once again captured the attention of today’s trendy men and women. Fortunately, Sperry has its own line of chukkas that are comfortable, functional, and reasonably priced.
Sperry Top-Sider Boat Oxford Desert Boot – At first glance, you would never recognize that this ruggedly-handsome pair is manufactured by Sperry because of its design.
It has all the great chukka characteristics such as the two-lace design, flat collar, and plain toe. It features a premium leather upper which is very durable. You can also wear it all day without experiencing any type of foot pains because it has a cushioned foot-bed and an EVA heel cup. Also, the synthetic out-sole contributes to its cushioning and flexibility.
Authentic Original Chukka – This chukka comes from the A/O line which is known for its comfortable features and style. It still has the nautical design which Sperry is known for. It has tough but soft leather upper and its flexible out-sole provides a lot of grip. The price of this shoe is unbelievably low and similar products from other manufacturers would cost two to three times. However, one of the most common issues with this product is that it is narrow.
Sperry Top-Sider Largo – This model is one of the most popular of all Sperry chukkas and it comes in a couple of variants. There is the pair that comes with leather upper and leather laces and the other one has a denim upper with 7 eyelets for lacing.
The comfort level of this laid-back shoe is not like any other as it has the Euro-Comfort design and a cushioned removable foot-bed. However, it also has a vulcanized construction so don’t think that it will not last long.
Bahama Chukka – This pair is a combination of a chukka, boat shoe, and because of its canvass upper, it also looks like a sneaker. You will really fall for its contrast stitching and lace-up design with metal eyelets. It is also relaxed due to the fabric lining and padded insole.
The Sperry Top-Sider Bahama actually comes in many various colors including those for women. Also, if you are not a fan of the mid-cut design, there are models that are not.
