Paul Newman is one of our most beloved screen legends and style icons. From suits to sportswear, his looks were understated, refined, timeless, and undeniably American classics. In this 1967 photo, Newman sits on the deck of a boat sporting canvas shoes, light trousers, and a jersey sweatshirt.

In celebration of its 75th anniversary, Sperry Top-Sider (maker of the iconic deck shoes) released a limited-edition collection based on authentic designs, like this one inspired by the first-ever Sperry shoe, the CVO sneaker. On sale now at J. Crew or get them directly from Sperry.
