sperry topsider -made in brewer maine


In Sperry-speak this is the Authentic Original®. Know to the rest of us as Top-Sider. Sperry have finally jumped in, and now work with Highland Shoe, Co. in Brewer, ME to create this essential item. These are $300, but if you use code FRIEND you can get 25% off (so $225)... I just tried, it works. Sure would wear Arrow Mocs or whatever but grew up in Top-Siders. Question, can you get new soles on these or is that a lost cause, cus I burn through the sole in one summer basically... BTW, incase you wonder, this is a pure "find", Sperry have not contacted me atall.

Yes, you've seen similar factory videos by now but this one worth a look. Happy Friday!

i like these a lot. my own pair, hecho en China, have held up quite well over the years. but with summer coming it may be time for some new ones.

Thanks for the heads-up on the made-in-Maine Top-Siders. Your commentary inspired me to order a pair, and I eagerly await their arrival. While I'm certain that the quality is outstanding, the discount makes them very competitive with boat shoes from Rancourt, Quoddy, and Oak Street - plus you get real Top-Siders!

@bd79cc hope you enjoy them.

glad to see this happening, you can also buy Quoddys who are the people who used to make all of LL Beans stuff. There's another company too but I forget their name. Glad to see some companies getting wise to the fact that people WILL pay for US made.
