As I mentioned last week, Sperry Top-Sider was super gracious, and offered to send me a new pair of shoes to replace my old pair that got “grossed out” by the Nashville flood. Again, A HUGE THANKS GOES OUT TO THEM. My original thought was to go with a “traditional” version the Authentic Originals. But, then I reconsidered. I already have a few pairs of “normal colored” boat shoes. That’s when I noticed these Gray Burnished joints… Done and done.
