I had those in the 70's for sailing in SF Bay. They looked like Keds, but the tops were two layers of canvas, and the soles stuck to the decks better. Do they still make them?

Sperry released the "75th Anniversary" edition CVO last year, and it looks pretty close... not sure where they're making them now, though.
