This Week’s Objects of Lust: J. Crew’s Broken-in Sperry Topsiders

Like most people, I live in a city. As much as I’d like to be cruising the Caribbean in a yacht or enjoying Lake of the Woods on the weekend, that lifestyle is difficult to maintain alongside of work and can seem a world away at times. To that end, it’s always nice to be able to obtain a little slice of that lifestyle in the city. That’s why the Sperry Topsiders sold by J. Crew jumped out at me right away. Sperry is famous for making some of the best boat shoes in the world, with special, non-slip soles meant to be worn on slippery decks (hence the other name for boat shoes: deck shoes); these are examples of their Authentic Original line. J. Crew is one of the premier purveyors of classic, American-style clothing and many of the items they sell tend to have a timeless appeal.

Boat shoes always look better with a few years of salt and wear on them and since I’m lacking both the time and ocean access necessary to get that look, J. Crew’s assistance in the matter is greatly appreciated. I tend to avoid pre-distressed articles of clothing but I’m willing to make an exception for this great pair of shoes. They look as good relaxing at the lake as they do strolling through the city on a Saturday afternoon. A word to the wise though: leave the socks at home.


These shoes are available online at www.jcrew.com. Shipping to both the U.S. and Canada are very easy with J. Crew, so no worries on that front. The shoes shown above are $98.00US. Canadians should keep in mind that duty will be required to be paid upon delivery.
