Sperry Teams Up with Gray Malin to Design the World's Artsiest Boat Shoe

Sneak peak of the capsule collection


For their latest and greatest collaboration, Sperry has teamed up with Gray Malin to create a line of spring kicks. The Los Angeles based artist is best known for his iconic aerial photos, often capturing the beaches of Europe, Africa and Australia from above. Malin’s mission is to make everyday a deserved getaway, and his art is designed to ignite an incredible adventure.


Malin flies in door-less helicopters and leans out of the side to capture his stunning photography, which is where he was inspired for the collaboration – snapping photos of his Sperrys dangling from the side of the helicopter.


Last night was the launch of the capsule collection here in Los Angeles, where we got to check out the line first hand. Party goers sipped on Dark N Stormy cocktails and nibbled on pretzel bun lobster rolls.


The line consists of 4 shoes that encompass both brands mutual love for the sea, preppy style and adventure. The prints from photographs taken in Potugal, Sicily and South Africa and are now available at
