close up shows how detailed and purpose-driven/ well thought out-the different zones of the shoe are- Sea Racer Sneaker $100-here women's version in Bachelor Button Blue. Weighs only 6.4 ounces w/ Hydro Grip™ rubber-sticky outsole, Adaptive Wave Siping™ disperses water underfoot all reduce slippage+ add stability on deck, removable patented interactive footbed w/ independent chambers for feel feedback, nylon mesh uppers dies fast…also leather version M/W
Sperry-Top-Sider is well on its way to earning accolades as a lifestyle brand-without compromising  (or insulting) its original fan base of devoted boat going/sea-faring individuals…who want the tradition and the latest in tech know-how, PLUS COMFORT-for what gets put on their bodies-from the ankles, down.

Sea Top Voyager-men and women's versions $120-lightweight performance boating shoe with a waterproof breathable membrane dubbed  WaterBlock™, ASV, and Adaptive Wave Siping™ -dry feet inside a shoe that can grip-double as a urban kick (imo)...also onboard, a full-length removable compression molded EVA footbed maximizes comfort and we like the bungee closures too- so easy. 
Autumn's colder temps-and often wetter conditions require different footwear---and Sperry delivers several styles with its proprietary performance features of Anti-Shock and Vibration Technology™(ASV)…Adaptive Wave Siping™ that disperses the water away from the outsole part for better grip+traction on difference surfaces and conditions, and the nifty SON-R technology™ built into some styles-for natural sensory feedback for greater stability on terrain…desirable especially when going from sea-rock-land adventures.
