Men's Boaty SIZE GUIDE
Note: As of October 8th we changed the sizing for the Boaty.
We now recommend ordering 1/2 larger than your usual size.
(If you previously ordered a 9, a 8.5 should now fit you properly)
FREE EXCHANGES: Most people find our size recommendation gives them a proper fit, but just in case, we have a free exchange program for all US orders.
*If you normally buy a Euro, UK or JP Size, check out the handy conversion chart below.
NOTE: The Boaty has a wider toe box than conventional shoes. If your feet are particularly narrow, consider the Woman's Boaty. Just make sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example, a men's 8 is the same length as a women's 9.5).

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.

Great shoe but looks too much like a sllipper

This is my first purchase of Xero Shoes, and I'm pretty happy. Except when running, I exclusively wear flip flops and needed a shoe for winter, so I got these. After all day use of a brand new shoe, my feet had no hot spots, which is impossible. I noticed there are no stitches inside the shoe, unlike New Balance Minimus shoes to rub on - very cool. The muscles in my feet were even a bit sore, which says something about how flexible and thin the soles are, considering I'm used to flip flops. This is a great thing. Only when talking about shoes is getting a workout a bad thing. It could be that I got such a big size (size 12 Mens), but they look a little too much like a slipper to me from the top; although, the picture looks like a boat shoe. They still look cool. I'm not embarrassed to be out in public or anything, and maybe I'm being pedantic. I doubt I could get away with wearing them as business casual, which I was hoping for. Other than that, they're great.

Great kicks!

I bought my first pair of Xero’s about 6 weeks ago and couldn’t be happier. Looking into getting a second pair as we speak.

Excellent slip on

I am super happy with the Boaty. It is a comfortable, great looking Xero model with the upside of being a slip-on. I have been wearing them every day around the house when I need to slip on a shoe (I am normally barefoot). I highly recommend these, but they run small, so make sure to order a size larger than normal.

Love the shoes, they're more

Love the shoes, they're more narrow around the proximal phalanges than I expected, or than is good for true barefoot shoes, but they're comfortable and stylish. Also my name is Kolton, not Kokton.
