One of our most-loved styles gets lighter and more comfortable than ever.

This guy is back, and he’s better than ever. He’s your chilled out, sun-kissed companion, ready for a casual day on the water or an elegant night on the town. Plus, he’s mastered the whole practical, laid back yet effortlessly put-together aesthetic we’re all struggling (well, at least some of us are) to perfect.

Meet the Striper II, the newest snazzy sneaker addition to your wardrobe. Ready for anything; the sky’s the limit.

Hit refresh

We started with the hit Striper. Then, we gave it an upgrade. The Striper II is lighter and more comfortable than the tried-and-true original we all know and love, with five fresh colors to complement your closet. (It’s ok to want more than one. We do too…)

Their salt-washed finish gives them that beachy look before they even touch the sand. But trust us, they’re ready for a beach vacation whenever you are.

Fine function

Fine form, yes, but also serious function. We designed the Striper II to be lightweight and flexible, with superior traction and wearability (because, duh, it’s Sperry). Walk with confidence in rain or shine thanks to the Wave-Siping™ rubber outsole – that special Sperry bottom that prevents you from slipping. Feet happily mold to the removable footbeds that grant you all-day comfort.

Style away

The key to styling these sneakers is the laces. Wear them without laces for a casual slip-on that pairs well with your denim cutoffs or Oxford shorts. Re-lace them for a clean, sophisticated finish when you’re wearing khakis with a polo and crew-neck sweater or dark denim with a sleek button-down. They’re part of our spring collection, but as with all things, we encourage a little defiance. Try them right now with a thick sweater, semi tucked into denim.
