How do I look after my Sperry shoes?
Need to keep your boat shoes squeaky clean? We've got you covered.
Step 1: Remove laces
If your shoes have laces, first remove them before cleaning your shoes. They are often made of rawhide which means they have to be cleaned differently.
To clean genuine leather shoelaces, just pop them in a bowl with cold water and soap, swish thoroughly, and then rinse with clean water. Allow your laces to air dry for about 24 hours.
Step 2: Clean with leather care products
It's important to remember that leather should not be treated in the same way you would fabric, nubucks or suedes. Even though your Sperry shoes get wet with water we advise against washing with water. We recommend using a leather cleaner to remove any dirt and stains. That'll help to maintain the moisture leather.
Step 3. Drying
Open the shoes fully, remove the insoles and laces and let them dry at room temperature. (Never expose them to heat!).
Step 4. Conditioning
Recommended treatment depends on the construction and material of the footwear. Many treatments do slightly alter the colour and appearance of the shoes. We recommend using a leather lotion to protect your Sperry shoes from drying, cracking and scuffing.
We don't currently stock any specific cleaning products for Sperry however you can find most leather care products at your local Supermarket or Shoe Repair shops.
Extra tips on how to care for your Sperrys:
- Need to freshen up? Sprinkle non-leather insoles with baking soda to deodorise and help with general freshness. We even recommend investing in a pair of no-show socks to help keep your feet cool and stick-free!
- If they get wet, or after cleaning your leather boat shoes, allow your Sperrys to air-dry for 24 hours in a cool, dry place away from heat or sunlight.
- Stuff your boat shoes with newspaper to absorb excess moisture. It also helps to maintain its shape!

Why are my shoes squeaky?
Occasionally we do get feedback that the shoes are squeaky. This is not actually a manufacturing fault, but a pocket of air which is trapped between the insole and the outsole.
Tip: Try taking the insole out, sprinkle talcum/baby powder on the base and leave overnight to settle, then next day shake out the excess talc.
If your shoes don’t have removable insoles, sprinkle the powder along the seams of the insoles instead of underneath them. The powder will help reduce the friction between your insoles and shoes so they don't squeak as much.

What is your mission statement?
At Sperry, we're extremely passionate about ourselves as a brand and innately connecting with the water. We're naturally inspired to take action upon learning about the staggering numbers surrounding water pollution.
Did you know that 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year and that half of it is single-use? Of that, eight million tons of land in our oceans as waste. And if we don’t do something about it, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.
To rally behind our waters, we have partnered with our friends at Waterkeeper Alliance and BIONIC® and we're on a mission to reduce/eliminate plastic waste in our oceans for good.
To kick things off, we've launched Sperry BIONIC® - which is a collection of sustainable shoes woven from an average of five plastic bottles that have been recovered from marine and coastal environments.
