SIZE THEM UP, OR DOWN Leather will stretch over time. If the boat shoes are made of synthetic materials, stay true to size—these won’t stretch, as they’re constructed to hold their shape. Keep in mind, the break-in of your new boat shoes will only affect the width (not the length).

Why does breaking new shoes hurt?

The new shoes feel tight around the toes, they rub at the heel, and they pinch with every step. It’s the dreaded break-in period, when a new shoe rubs against tender feet, causing blisters and abrasions, until shoe and foot find a way to conform to each other in harmony.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Put thick socks on your feet.
  2. Blast one of the shoes all over with a hair dryer for around a minute, until it’s warm and soft.
  3. Put the shoe on your foot.
  4. Repeat with the other shoe.
  5. Walk around your house at least until the shoes have cooled – the longer you can keep them on the better.

Can Sperrys get wet?

While Sperrys aren’t technically waterproof, they are water-friendly and it’s more than OK to get them wet (they were created for slippery boat decks, after all). Your Sperrys can handle water and will eventually dry, with a patina that looks even better than they did pre-soak (in our humble opinion).

The key to getting the perfect fit is to first make sure that your shoes are sized appropriately.

Sperry’s sizing experts recommends buying leather shoes a half-size smaller than your normal size.
