Sperry Top-Sider Announces New Distribution in Dick’s Sporting Goods

Lexington, Mass. – Sperry Top-Sider, the leading nautical performance and lifestyle footwear brand, announced today that its authentic performance footwear line is now available in 49 different Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide.

Sperry Top-Sider’s grip on performance began over 75 years ago with the Authentic Original™ boat shoe, which at the time was state-of-the-art performance equipment. Still driven by the same passion for innovation, Sperry Top-Sider offers a wide variety of lab-proven, athlete-tested footwear solutions. Dick’s Sporting Goods is now carrying a selection of Sperry Top-Sider’s performance product for the water enthusiast looking for footwear to wear in, on or around the water.

Sperry’s performance shoes include product with SON-R Technology™ which was specifically designed with the multi-water sport athlete in mind. SON-R Technology™ with its unique outsole/midsole design, provides natural sensory feedback allowing for greater stability and agility on all terrains. The interactive footbed in all SON-R product has independent chambers to improve sensory feedback, and the Hydro-Grip™ rubber outsole delivers maximum on-deck traction with Sperry’s stickiest outsole ever.

Also available at select Dick’s stores is the perfect shoe for boaters and anglers looking to spend a longer day on the water – the Shock Light with Anti-Shock and Vibration (ASV) Technology™, which dramatically reduces shock and vibration for power boaters and anglers. By deflecting g-forces outward, rather than through the soles of your feet, ASV Technology™ reduces shock forces by up to 40% via Sperry’s Lateral Dispersion System™ and helps you feel less beaten down and up for a longer day out on the water.
