Chances are, you’ve owned a pair of original Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes at some point in time—if not currently, then perhaps back in the day. But we bet you’ve never had a pair of Sperry’s like the SON-R Pong before.

Designed for more functionality that you’d get from a pair of traditional water shoes, the high-tech Sperry SON-R Pong sneakers use SON-R technology to heighten natural sensory responses to help you feel, think and react to your surrounding conditions, whether its on land or at sea. According to Sperry, “the shoe enables your body to gain improved awareness of what is happening beneath your feet.”

The shoe features an interactive foot bed with independent chambers to help improve sensory feedback. It comes with an internal drainage system to reduce slippage, as well as a Hydro-Grip Rubber outsole for reliable traction and increased stability.

The Sperry SON-R Pong is available in a traditional camo get-up, as well as a blue version.
