Icon: Washed Sperry Top-Siders


Leave it to the prepsters at J. Crew to come up with a great twist on a classic. Exclusively at J. Crew stores and jcrew.com is a washed version of the original Sperry Top-Sider leather deck shoe. Imagine that your favorite Topsiders have spent a year getting rained on, drying in the sun, walking across countless boardwalks and being carried around by the dog. Soft and worn and so comfortable.

Warning: don’t try this at home in the laundry room! I did one summer and ended up with Top-Siders that were brittle and never smelled right.
