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 men’s 9 is only 8.4 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: men with especially narrow feet may want to consider the “women’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.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return 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.

easy shoe for around the house

I personally love my Boatys. It's great to have something I can slip on and off for simple walks - even sandals are not as easy because you have to fiddle with the straps. They're a great close toed shoe to have on hand. The only reason I am giving these 4 stars and not 5 is that they don't have the best moisture management. I wore them to work without socks a couple times in the fall, and they got a pretty bad odor. I've tried cleaning them, and it's better, but I would still recommend a different approach if you have office mates that you don't want to alienate.

So comfy!!

I've been wearing my Boatys for a few days and I am in love! They're so comfy and I love the fact that I can feel the ground beneath me. Being able to spread my toes and not have a big piece of cushion under my heel is awesome too. I can't wait to see how strong my feet get. If you're reading this, buy these shoes!!

A little bigger than I thought they would be

I followed the instructions and got a whole size up and I think I should have done a half. Overall though, I love them! Well made and comfortable. I’m wearing them a lot even in this Ohio winter!

Awesome deck shoe - Boaty

Since I have 5 different Xero shoes and pretty much wear them all the time due to great comfort and feel. I got the boaty and as with all the other shoes, the fit was very good and comfort for all-day use was perfect. If, I am able to wear this out, you can assure I will immediately purchase another pair...

Sooo comfortable--but please rethink the laces!

I love these shoes; they're so comfortable, I feel like I'm walking around in slippers all day. (This pair is my fourth style of Xeros and I love them all.) I would suggest rethinking the laces, though. I found the ones that come with these shoes to be abnormally "fat" and way too long, which created an awkward appearance. Since I managed to get the shoes re-laced with shorter, thin, round laces, they look so much better!

Shoe Love!

I really do love these shoes. They are the best minimalist shoes I have ever tried. I started with Vibram FiveFingers (still love, but not always practical), then Lems (not so impressive for the cost), and AllBirds (not minimal, but the wool makes it so you don't have to wear socks- always a plus). The Xero shoes are by far my favorite! They are the only shoes I have ever purchased that did not give me a blister on some part of my foot. They are so breathable that I can wear them without socks and my feet do not feel or smell sweaty. I really think the Huarache strap is what makes them so comfortable since the strap, not the shoe itself, provides support and structure to keep on your foot. In this way, your feet are basically encased in, and protected by, the shoe. The shoe is not putting pressure on your foot by rubbing or adhering to your foot, thanks to the Huarache strap. The boaties are so cute! The look great with skinny jeans, boot cut jeans, shorts, yoga pants, everything! The cost is so reasonable for such great shoes, especially compared to the other brands I mentioned are all $100+. My only complaint is that due to the size up recommendation (which I agree with), the women's Rosewood color was not in my size and I had to get a mens. The blue is still very nice, but the Rosewood color is so lovely! Overall though, I LOVE this shoe and can't wait to try another pair of Xeros.
