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.

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.

Boaty Shoe! Such a deal, love it and trimmed the strings to my liking

No more cold feet on our vinyl covered cement slab kitchen floor. Will love them at Carolina beaches! Washed them once, and know they will hold up well in sand, too.

Boaty - Men shoes

Did receive these shoes several weeks ago. They fit well and look very good to me. Have not had much of a chance to wear them because it is winter so when I go out, I'm usually wearing my winter boots. However, looking forward to wearing them more come spring and summer. Love my previous pair a lot so I'm sure I will be happy with these as well. My feet are so comfortable in these shoes so please keep up the good work!!!

They feel great

Just received them today and I'm really enjoying wearing them around the house. They feel airy and light and very comfortable. And at a great price! No complaints here!

relaxed but functional

The Boaty's felt a little big for me when I first put them on, but my toes love the extra room and freedom to spread without pinching and after a short while, they fit great and there is no feeling like the shoe will slip off when I walk. Looking forward to making a future purchase!

My new Boaties

I've had them for the weeks now and they are just what I expected: easy slip-on, slip-off, easy to clean and I can wear them with or without socks. I especially like how easy it is to deal with the Xero Shoes personnel. Easy to talk to and helpful when you call them, and if you have to exchange shoes, they make it easier for you, both with directions and financially. I have bought a good number of Xero sandals and shoes, and I love them. I don't wear anything else whenever I have to wear shoes. Walking barefoot and using Xero Shoes have kept my injured knee from flaring up.

Still too loose after replacement pair sent

After the first pair which were too big anyway, despite following site instructions ripped within 10seconds (no exaggeration) the second pair were still too large even after downsizing a full size.

Great shoes.

Needed a pair that could go on and off quickly and were comfortable and these fit the bill.

All great!

Every xero pair we own are well fitting, comfy, perform as a minimalist shoe as hoped, and the toe box rocks!

Comfortable and Well Made

The title says it all. Over the past four years I have purchased several Xeroshoes sandals and shoes. Never have I been disappointed with fit or quality when I wear/abuse them. My Boaty McBoatshoes are a great all around shoe. I don’t think I will do long distance runs in them, but I can see myself wearing them while swinging kettlebells, walking etc. I like Xeroshoes because they are versatile, comfortable and durable.
