Dati meron akong local na topsiders na nabili ko sa shoemart, tapos inuwi ako ng ermats ko na topsider galing sa states. Hindi Sperry pero at least stateside. Natatandaan ko meron akong blue at meron akong brown. Wala na yun pareho, nalaspag na kaya tinapon ko na.

The one posted here is the 4th generation Sperry.

First generation had no etching on the heels, and had only the embossed wave logo on one shoe. Underneath, It said the phrase, "Sperry, the original boat shoe" or something like that.

The 2nd iteration had embossed logos on both leathers and underneath the wave logo made its appearance.

The third gen had bigger logos underneath and logo at the the back of the heel and the brand name on the side of the heels.

Other choices were present: Sebago Docksides, Bass, Eastland, Timberland. Pero nothing beats Sperry.

Sperry topsiders were way too much for my meager allowance, instead, I bought the local World Balance brand.

May mga gumagamit din ng Converse na "highcut" na magkaiba ang kulay ng kaliwa sa kanan.

Tams si VJ below. Bagong model na yan. Ako naman naki trade sa kaklase kong si Carlos Javier ng blue VELCRO-flapped sperrys noong gradeschool kami. hehe.

They are classic, like Vivaldi... They are aesthetically perfect...
Love sperry, sebago docksides and still use them all through the year, except winter :(
They are not aesthetically perfect but they are also comfortable and fits excellent with the jeans...

The Sperry Tops shown in the picture were manufactured in 1993 onwards. The 80s Sperry does'nt have a blue foam inside them.
