Term Definition
Boat Shoes
Boat Shoes - Boat shoes are sometimes called deck shoes, Topsiders or DocksidesĀ®. Invented by Paul Sperry in 1935, the boat or deck shoe was inspired by Sperry's cocker spaniel, Prince, running across the ice on a winter's day in Connecticut. Noticing the tiny cracks and cuts going in all directions on Prince's paws, Sperry developed a patent called 'Razor-Siping' on the soles which provided a non-slip surface.
