Let's face it; a classic spring look is white deck sneakers, but it doesn't take long before they can look pretty dirty, and nothing kills a look where you're rocking white pants at the yacht club, tennis club, or lawn party, and finish the look with dirty, beat up white deck sneakers. Happily, Sperry has brought back their classic cvo in white leather, which is easy to clean when you need that really fresh look.
Construction and materials are very good quality, but the leather is a little stiff, so some breaking in is required. I'm also not wild about the tan leather accents at the heel tab & tongue, but they're pretty incongruous.
Another plus is the elastic across the tongue, so you can wear these sans laces for a more relaxed look. they also include your choice of white fabric or leather laces, but if you lace them with the leather laces, don't pull on them too hard, 'coz they will break.
Overall great shoe for a great price. Strong recommend this classic for Spring!
