Big improvement to a classic design
Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2019
I got these Salt Washed Striper LL CVOs to finally replace the pair of Striper CVO Color Pop that I've been wearing nearly every weekend for more than 5 years. They're the same basic design that I like, with the same good fit and build quality as before. I'm sure I'll keep this pair for at least as long as I've had the last.
These new CVOs feature only one major difference that I can discern: the insoles have improved quite a bit at some point since I last bought a pair of Sperrys. With the old pair it didn't take long for me to realize that I needed to ditch the included insoles and replace with a third-party insert, which I ended up using for years. I fully expected to do that with this new pair, and even bought some inserts with the same order, but as it turns out I don't need them at all. The improved insoles that come with the shoe are far more comfortable and supportive than before, and even better than the gel inserts I've used in the past. I'm very happy with this change and would recommend this shoe to anybody.
