    Hi folks,

    I am looking for a cheap source for Sperry Topsider Boat Shoes that can be bought either in Toronto, Canada, or online continental shipping. Unfortunately, the BS forum does not turn up 9.5Ds very often and the local stores seem to be selling them for around $80.

    Any advice would be a great help,

    Florian

    Hey, I've been looking around for the same... basically most store retailers sell them for about $75-80 (get outside, little burgandy, etc). Really no luck. Your best bet is to try and find a cheap online source and get it shipped, but with the $20 shipping it all ends up being the same.

    Trust me on this, I spent a few hours researching, there is no cheap or easier way to get them. I got mine from Epaulette who was doing a closeout for like $60 USD, plus shipping, it'll still end up being around $75-80 in the end, so your best bet is to just find them in a store and buy them...

    I think Urban Outfitters has a cheaper alternative, but I'd rather pay an extra $10-20 for the quality assurance.

    Gilt just had a nice sale for Sperry. Look for them again in a couple of months probably.

    Zappos and other sites often have sales and codes reported on slickdeals. I'd monitor the hot deals over there for those. There's also closeout stores like Marshalls's and the like which have had Sperrys repeatedly.

    I don't know if you have any discount stores up there, but here in the US, stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, etc get them from time to time. They are usually in the $35-50 range.

    Try shoebuy.com. They often run 20% off sales. Wait for one of those, and combine it with bing.com cashback. I paid about $40 for my last pair this way.

    No clue whether Burlington Coat Factory extends into Canada, but they have Sperry's too (saw some there yesterday for $35)
