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 previously recommend choosing 1 full size larger than your usual size. However, we recently resized so we now recommend choosing a half-size larger than your usual size if you have never had a pair of Boaties.

(If you purchased the Boaty before our resize on October 9th, 2019, then we would recommend going down a half-size instead from your previous size, as that would line up with the current sizing.)

If our recommendation isn’t accurate, 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.

Casual High Society

I love these. I just moved back to Alameda, so boat wear is always in vauge. Very comfy. I fit right in at the tiki bar now.

Best value!

Although I personally thought that these aren't really my style, I decided to go for them as they were on clearance. Now, these are mostly my go-to shoes at the office (casual dress code). I will say that, while these aren't the most fashionable, they are very comfortable. The only criticism I have is that these come in a bit large and I feel that they are a bit too loose, especially the toe box, making them a bit noisy as I walk on hardwood floors and the like at work. I wear other Xero shoes and they do not have this issue as the sole adheres to my feet and I can control the step. This is just a minor gripe as being comfortable is much more important to me than style and noise. I have liked all my Xero shoes so far and the Boaty are no exception.

Feel Good Shoes

I like these shoes, they're very comfortable overall and plenty of space for my feet to spread out. A couple of things that I have to comment on, 1- the laces are too long and 2- my feet hurt/tire when I put on regular shoes afterward. I think my feet just have to acclimate to the barefoot style. I would recommend Xero shoes to friends and family interested in barefoot shoes.

Comfy Shoes

These are very nice with an even lighter feel than my Colton's. A bit soggy for wearing in the slush we have on Vancouver Island right now but that's not what they were intended for and they stay pretty warm even when wet and dry rapidly. They kind of feel like a fancy slipper.

Excellent service

I have wide feet and I needed to exchange for a men’s that is 1 1/2 sizes smaller than my women’s regular size, which means size 6 1/2 men’s for size 8 women’s. I’m glad that Xero has that small of size in Men’s. The toe width is perfect. The heal in the Boaty shoe is a tad wide but the design allows one to tighten the heel caps. So that’s great. Now if men’s board shoes had some more color options, I would swoon.

So comfy!

My husband is new to Xero shoes. He's refused to give them a try until he saw these boat shoes for a great price. He immediately loved them! He plans to live in them once the weather warms up.
