The gorgeous Sperry Top-Sider leather deck shoes are in great to excellent condition. After examining the overall appearance of these awesome captain's shoes, it is amazing to even consider they are over half of a century old. The gorgeous color of the upper section is a light olive or greenish beige. However, the color may look darker or lighter depending upon the type and amount of lighting.
These gorgeous deck shoes are super clean. The sides of the interior would pass for barely or never worn. The soles did have some debris and/or dust on them so they were cleaned. The upper leather section is absolutely gorgeous and it has not been conditioned or polished. They were simply wiped down to remove any dust or smudges from handling.
The men's size 9 W (Wide) Sperry Top-Sider leather captain's shoes have white to off-white soles which are referred to inside the shoes as "Anti-Slip" and "Safety Sole".
While the size is noted as a men's 9 W, these would also be great for women. According to a reference, these gorgeous 9 W Sperry's are equivalent to a women's size 11 shoe.
The shoes have the following sets of numbers on the sides of their interiors:
While these gorgeous men's fashion shoes do not explicitly say, another reference stated the uppers were actually hand-sewn. The rubber soles have a wavy-cut tread that expands and contracts as the shoes flex.
The strings appear to be original and in excellent condition.
There are no breaks, holes, bad odors, or repair places on these gorgeous leather deck/captain's shoes. There are some vintage age, wear, and rub marks on these gorgeous leather Sperry shoes. There are some marks on the exteriors of the shoes - mostly located at the bottom of the upper sections where they meet the soles. Also, there is a mark on the exterior of the left shoe near the top of the inside between the two eyelets. While it might be possible to rub it out, we did not want to risk hurting the exterior of the shoes. Also, the interiors are well intact and have not been removed, replaced, or repaired. The condition of these gorgeous shoes is simply incredible and increases our respect for the quality and craftsmanship of the Sperry brand.
These beautiful leather deck shoes would be a great addition to any fashion closet. In addition, while their actual age is around 50 years old, their design and appearance are so clean and timeless that they would work for nearly any occasion. These would also make great mid-century decorations for a man-cave or study area.
The collector will appreciate these gorgeous leather Sperry deck shoes for their great to excellent condition, timeless design, and clean retro appearance.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
