Paul Sperry watched his dog running around on an icy lake one day in 1935 and realized that the animals paws had impressive traction control. Mr. Sperry patented a sole that would give people shoes that replicated the traction his dog possessed, and the original Authentic Sperry Top-Sider was born.
