FATEFUL SLIP GAVE BIRTH TO FIRST EVER SPERRY
The very first pair of shoes Paul Sperry made was the CVO sneaker after a fateful slip off of a boat deck. The avid sailor and inventor, carved grooves on a rubber sole, providing a non-slip grip to keep sailors on slippery decks. It didn’t take long that these deck shoes became an icon because of its functionality, comfort, durablity, and clean timeless styling. Nowadays, canvas deck shoes are widely imitated by almost any brand but there’s only one original that started it all back in 1935.
