Product Description

Enjoy the Xero Shoes feeling in our version of a classic

Take the cozy comfort of your favorite slipper, and turn that into a boat shoe. That’s Boaty McBoat Shoe or Boaty for short.

Casual and stylish, Boaty is ready for wherever you take it.

Why you’ll love your Boaty:

  • Natural FIT — A wide toe box lets your toes spread and relax. Plus the “XERO-drop” sole (non-elevated heel and low-to-the-ground) allows for proper posture, balance and agility
  • Natural MOTION — The Boaty is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed to. Plus, they’re so lightweight, you’ll barely know you have them on. A women’s 7 is only 6.6 ounces each
  • Natural FEEL — The Boaty uses our non-marking 5.5mm FeelTrue® for protection that lets your feet safely Feel The World®
  • Canvas upper breathes and gives you a laid-back look and feel
  • Barefoot friendly — the super-smooth, moisture-wicking lining lets you wear the Boaty with or without socks, and the removable 2mm insole lets you have more barefoot feeling
  • 100% vegan-friendly
  • Huarache sandal inspired design — The heel strap is not only eye-catching but functional
  • 5,000-mile sole warranty — like ALL our FeelTrue® soles, the Boaty has our 5,000-mile sole warranty

Note: women with especially wide feet may want to consider the “men’s” Boaty.

While the design says “boat shoe” and the non-marking sole can be grippy, Boaty has a lightly padded canvas upper, so it’s not water-repellent like, say, leather.

You could treat it with a water repellent spray, if you like, but I’d still not think of Boaty as a “water shoe.”

The Boaty isn’t waterproof. You can treat the canvas with a water-proofing spray, but since there are drainage holes in the side, the shoe isn’t meant to be waterproof.

And while it can handle water, and dry quickly, it’s not the same type of boat shoe as, say, one made just with a leather upper.

The Boaty runs small. We recommend that you go up ONE size from your “usual” shoe size.

If our sizing recommendation isn’t correct, we do have an exchange policy.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

To clean your Boatys, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting the Boaty in the washing machine or dryer.

Great purchase!

They are very unique! Comfy yet supportive. Highly recommend. I went up a whole size and still could have gone another 1/2...just FYI.

Love the Boaty!

I was a little concerned when I first tried on the boaty as I have a narrow heel and was afraid the shoes would slip on my heel. But I adjusted them to fit with the shoestrings and I love them. They are just as comfortable as all my other Xero shoes! Thank you for another great product.

So comfortable

The Boaty shoe for women has to be one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn! They are easy to just slip on and go but still fitted. They are true to size.

They feel a little loose barefoot, though I think they’ll be fine if I wore socks. 🙂 The length is good, and I went with a 9, my true shoe size. I think the 8.5 would be a little small in length...

My new everyday shoe

Like all of my Xero shoes, these are super comfortable with no break-in period needed. I received these two days ago, and wore them (with no socks) for a 1 1/2 hour walk yesterday. These will be added to my Lenas as my everyday shoes, as they're both so comfortable, versatile, and go with just about anything. I just LOVE all of my Xero shoes!

One of my favorites

I love the design and that you can slip them on without having to tie laces or anything like that. The color is perfect for an everyday look with jeans. I expected the material to be a little thinner and more breathable. I love to wear them with socks but I get very sweaty feet when I wear them without socks. They get 4 stars because I won't be able to wear them on colder summer days without putting on socks first.

New shoes that feel like good old comfy shoes

Now that I have Boaty shoes that fit perfectly (I had returned my original pair that were too small) I could wear them all day, every day! All my other shoes are sneakers or hiking boots and I wanted simple brown shoes with an earthy/casual look. My orthotics fit perfectly into these and I can work with the laces to adjust the width. My neighbor showed me hers and it was Shoe Love at first sight. I'll probably buy a second pair to stash for when I wear these out.

Very pleased

Xero Shoes were recommended by my Structural Integration Practitioner as we work on optimizing my gait. I initially ordered up a size, as recommended, and was disappointed that the first pair was too large. Xero customer service sent my usual size out as I sent the first pair back (wow! nice!) and in almost no time at all I got to slip them on and really feel both freedom and support as I walk. They will have to become slippers once the Montana snows fly, but until then, I am wearing them everywhere and my whole body is benefiting.
