We love Sperry's Saltwater Duck Boots for women, as they're a classic choice made with durable, waterproof rubber bottoms and a water-resistant leather top. For men, the Original L.L.Bean Boots are a guaranteed win, as they've been crafted in Maine the same way since 1912.
Duck boots have been a rainy- or snowy-day favorite for years because they offer all the warmth, water protection, and grippy traction of a terrific boot, along with a comfortable calf and over-the-ankle fit that's easier to move around in than a typical stiff and heavy snow boot.
Sperry boots don't just work well in the damper, cooler environment of fall. As the season changes into winter, you'll find they're also comfortable to wear in the snow. There are many different styles and colors, making them perfect for the cool fall weather, snowy winter weather, and even the wet spring weather.
Looking for the short answer? Yes, you should wear socks with Sperrys. For enhanced comfort, your personal health (more on this below) and to extend the life of your shoes, it is recommended to wear socks with Sperrys.
Rain boots should not be snug, as you can make up extra space somewhat with midweight socks or thicker (which we recommend to increase cushioning and comfort).
These boots have a lightweight design with a slip-resistant Chevron outsole. These boots are ideal for any athlete on the water looking for comfortable protection and easy pull-on and off style. Since Ankle Deck boots are constructed with hand-laid rubber, they aren't commercial-grade boots.
A required accessory for any prep uniform since 1935, the boat shoe is now trending once again, securing the brand as preppy style's ultimate icon.
Today, they are commonly used by boaters and non-boaters alike, both for functional and aesthetic reasons. We want you to look your best when wearing these shoes, and there are definitely some things to keep in mind so you look more “yacht owner” and less “reliving college.”
Sperry's shoes remained a niche product for boaters until 1939 when the US Navy negotiated the right to manufacture the shoe for its sailors at the United States Naval Academy. As a result of this increased production, Sperry sold the brand to the US Rubber Co. in 1940.
