A Brife History of Marine Shoes & Deck Shoes

The history of marine shoes or deck shoes goes back as far as maritime history began. When aboard ship, men, women and children needed to have a shoe that could stand up to the rugged and sometimes brutal sea weather. A shoe needed to withstand the salt spray, sea air, heat and cold. On top of all this the shoe needed to be comfortable and give the wearer grip whilst aboard ship.

It is believed that the inspiration for the deck shoe originates from the Native American Moccasin. The moccasin was made from deer skin and was made from water resistant hide which protected the foot whilst allowing it to grip the wooden base of the canoe. The design was simple but very effective and to this day some manufactures still use the design such as Sebago.

Deck Shoes

The first deck shoe was designed by Paul Sperry in 1935. He was an ardent boater and wanted a shoe that would have all the characteristic of a moccasin but look more nautical.

The Sperry Top-Sider combined a leather upper-shoe with a herring-bone pattern of groves on the sole. The cutting of groves into the sole of the shoe gave the sole grip-ability on the wet slippery deck of the boat. This was what boaters had been waiting for!
