I will stick with the authentic Sperrys, which have always kept their grip.
Ditto.
I have worn Sperrys for decades, and recieved a pair of WM shoes as a gift in 2009. They were completely worn out and hardened by the middle of 2012. My latest pair of Sperrys, that were purchased in 2008, are still grippy but ugly as sin, covered in paint and varnish.

Thanks to the folks at Crocs, i will be testing a pair of these this season;

I'll let you know how it goes.
