Sperry Billfish ASV
Style: Leather moc, performance
Sole: Smooth, siped
Best Application: Wet or dry decks, occasional dunking, street casual
Top Line: These smart-looking leather uppers boast Sperry’s ASV design for stability and shock absorption. Traditional siping with rugged grooves gives solid footing on any deck.
Wins: It was fast to drain and dry, and because the leather uppers absorbed little water, they dried undamaged.
Losses: It was a long slider in the puddle surf, but it came in second only to the Kingfishers overall.
Finish Line: Second place is OK when your teammate Kingfisher beats you. The nonscuffing rubber was unsurpassed in the puddle-jogging test.
