Every pair of these limited edition Sperrys is totally unique

When classic shoe maker Sperry teams up with a high-end retailer like Barney’s, the combination is bound to be pretty special. The two brands may have even outdone themselves this time, with the Sailcloth CVO, a Sperry perennial favorite with a neat twist – real sail uppers.

Each pair of CVO sneakers is wrapped with a piece of canvas that was actually used as a sail. Whether it was rigged to a college team’s ship, or Sperry’s US Sailing Team, the sneakers adopt their styling. That means stitching, patches, and coloring are completely unique to each pair of CVOs.

The CVO silhouette actually dates back to 1935, and while materials have improved, a lot of the charm remains intact. The sole is still vulcanized rubber, but with Sperry’s Razor-Cut Wave-Siping shape so you don’t slip around or leave any marks. That’s one of the problems with vulcanized outsoles, and it’s especially important here, considering Sperry’s pedigree.

For the limited edition pairs, Sperry has improved the shoe with a comfortable and lightweight cork footbed, perfectly suited for wet docks. To top it off, the shoes feature rawhide laces for a more naturally inspired look. Considering the predominantly off-white uppers in the photos though, these may still turn out to be a better fit for the yacht club than actually out on a sailboat.

Of course, the real fun of each pair is seeing how each pair differs from the next. We’ve seen a few shoes with varying patterns between each pair before, but the combination of the intentionally mismatched patterns and the used canvas look really elevate a casual style.

The Sperry x Barney’s Sailcloth CVO is only available at Barney’s stores, both physical and digital. They went up for $125 on June 8th, and haven’t sold out yet, but it’s only a matter of time.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
