Re: Good Deck Shoes?

Yes, Sperry deck shoes glaze and harden after about 3-4 years. There's a simple solution:

Wear them around town after the first 2 years and by new deck shoes.

Seriously, we are always buying new "round town" sneakers. Just let the deck shoes finish their lives on the sidewalk.
