Paul observed his dogs claws digging into the ice, keeping it from losing grip and tumbling around. The soon to become a famous inventor went up and rushed into his work room, picked up a pen knife and used it on a pair of worn out rubber sneakers, cutting sipings into the outsoles. The Boat Shoe was born.
In addition to many other clever designs, Sperry later created what would be known as the Authentic Original, famous world-wide as the Sperry Topsiders boat shoes, soon to proudly becoming part of the US Naval Academy casual uniform.
