Sperry Topsider, the original boat shoe brand, introduces the Spring/Summer Collection for 2012, featuring new looks, styles, colours and materials; encompassing a selection of styles from authentic to modern.
Formen, the iconic Boat Oxford available in canvas, leather or suede, puts a stylish twist on the brand’s classic A/Odesign. The new Sperry Cup design targets a younger audience looking for athleticcomfort combined with a fashionable style and attention to detail.
The 1935 Classic A/O 2-Eye has been transformed for spring/summer 2012. Now available in brushed leather, suede and drenched in bold colours that epitomise summer. The iconic staple has also been recreated in denim and canvas. The Bahama with its unique vulcanised sole is offered again in fresh colours reflecting a growing penchant for contrasting colour soles within the men’s footwear market – a key style for us at MPDClick.
Sperry’s women’s spring/summer 2012 collection has been inspired by European and American coastal towns to develop designs that reflect the ocean, air, sun and sand.
Sperry has added a new twist on its original A/O2-Eye collection this season, with new materials such as fish skin, washed canvas, leather and suede. Stripes, metallics and ton sur ton are but a few examples of how the classic A/O have been given a fresh, contemporary feel for 2012.
An exciting addition to the ladies spring/summer 12 collection is the Bluefish, one of the best selling and iconic Sperry styles in the US today. Making an introduction overseas for the first time, this popular and easily wearable style adds a preppy feel to the collection. The Bluefish is available in classic colourways of tan/tweed and black/checked combinations as well as summery sky blue featuring nautical stripes, drawing a real emphasis from Sperry’s strong boating heritage. The Bahama with its characteristic vulcanised sole is available in avariety of seasonal colourways.
Styles standing out for us at MPDCLick include the candy striped A/O 2-Eye and ultramodern Bahama designs – styles sure to sell well.
