We’re once again teaming up with Sperry - this time, for a limited-edition take on the original boat shoe created by Paul Sperry in 1935. Our update features Vibram® lug soles, two-toned Taslan hiker laces, shock-absorbing EVA heel cups, heel pulls featuring our signature zig-zag motif, and, most notably, uppers made from 100% certified rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate, the type of plastic used in soda bottles and food containers).
Rowing Blazers creative director Jack Carlson: “It’s an honor to be tapped by Sperry once again. We’ve created some amazing designs over the past few years. This time, I wanted to take it back to basics. I grew up wearing the A.O. boat shoe, and it’s an American icon. But I’m interested in exploring alternative and more sustainable materials in footwear. The rPET material lends itself particularly well to bright colors, and Rowing Blazers is all about color. The Vibram® lug sole makes the shoe more substantial and more modern to me, and the Taslan hiker lace also.”
