Sperry, the boat shoe-brand whose footwear was worn by the cast of Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic Jaws, decided to celebrate and pay homage to the legendary film in a unique way: launching six different Jaws-themed sneakers.
Having turned 40 last year, the shark story movie is considered to be one of the greatest thrillers of all time. The shoes were sported by members of the cast (notably Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss) in the 1975 thriller.
The collection features authentic “Jaws” imagery from the iconic shark to a swimmer innocently enjoying a day at the beach. Even the foot bed has some fun with warnings such as, “No swimming, hazardous area, beach closed.”
The shoes come wrapped in delightfully gross “blood stained” paper inside a “Jaws”- themed box.
The Jaws themed shoes will be available on the Sperry website on May 5 before making their way to retailers in June.
