    Sperry Top-Sider, the leading global nautical performance and lifestyle brand, is pleased to announce that the H2O Escape women’s water shoe has received the coveted Best Sneaker Award from Fitness Magazine. The Escape topped the list as ‘Best Water Shoe.’

    The April issue of FITNESS Magazine celebrates the best 13 sneakers for 2014. Individual categories include ‘Best Water Shoe,’ ‘Best Hiking Shoe,’ ‘Best Trail Running Shoe’ and others. Testing is conducted by 144 testers and 99 shoes were considered over the course of several months.

    “We are delighted to include the Sperry H2O Escapeas one of FITNESS Magazine’s best sneakers of 2014,” says Pam O’Brien, executive editor of FITNESS. “The sneaker guide is one of our annual signature programs, and it’s something that our readers look forward to and use to shop for their shoes.”

    The H2O Escape is a true do-it-all water sport shoe that features Sperry Top-Sider’s Adaptive Wave-Siping Technology for superior traction on slippery surfaces. With internal water channels and drainage ports, the H2O Escape provides exceptional drainage during in-water activities. Quick-drying, breathable materials throughout the shoe help to keep feet comfortable during all adventures in, on and around the water.

    “Our heritage lies in the development of top-line performance footwear for competitive sailors, including the U.S. Sailing Team,” says Lee Baxter, vice president of performance at Sperry Top-Sider. “That knowledge has influenced every shoe in the performance line and it’s exciting to see one of our most versatile products gaining recognition from the folks at FITNESS.”
