Women's Boaty SIZE GUIDE

We recommend ordering a half-size larger than your usual size.

Note: The Women's Boaty was previously regarded as a full size small. We changed the sizing by a half-size as of October 9th, 2019. If you had ordered a pair before that date, a half-size down with our current sizing should fit you now.
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 women's shoes. If your feet are particularly wide, consider the Men'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).

Boaty McBoat Shoe - Women

Xero’s take on a casual classic

We recommend ordering a half-size larger than your usual size. If you are typically a size 9, a size 9.5 should be a better fit.

Note: We resized the Boaties on October 9th, 2019. If this style used to fit you previously, order a half-size smaller instead.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

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 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.

Awesome shoes!

I love the style! Xero shoes could quite possibly be the best shoes for spinal health...being as close to barefoot as possible, they still provide good traction and protection for your feet!

Awesomey McAwesomeface.

I took a chance on these shoes after seeing ads on facebook & I’m SO GLAD I did! Shipping took some extra time because of covid but they were worth the wait! I love the big toe box, I have painful bunions & restricted movement in my big toe joint as a result. I kept trying shoes with more support & kept getting disappointed. These are comfy & don’t anger the bunions. My only wish is that they would dry more quickly when they get wet. I’ll be searching Xero stock for waterproof shoes next! Highly recommend them! Thanks for being awesome Xero team!😍

Boaty - shoe for women

Love them. Very lightweight. The perfect shoe to put on for a quick trip to the store, or walking down to the post office to get the mail. I love to wear them when I'm home all day; feels like I don't have anything on my feet.

New Favorite Shoes

MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THE SIZE CHART!!! I love these shoes both with the extra insert & without. They’re extremely comfortable, my feet adjusted quickly & easily. The ONLY thing I would change about them if I could would be to make the laces just a little bit shorter for aesthetic purposes, and if possible I’d make them a bit more water resistant/proof. For what they are though, absolutely amazing

Active 60 something female

They are extremely comfortable with plenty of room for my toes to spread. The inside has soft cushioning that feels good against my feet since I wear them with no socks. I usually wear a 7.5 but I got a size 8 and they fit just fine. I would highly recommend these shoes, especially for people who need a wider fit. I plan to buy a pair of the walking/running shoes next.

Love

At first I ordered an 8.5 but it was too loose. I gave them to a friend whom they fit perfectly and fit myself the 8 which fits perfectly! We both love these shoes. So comfy and casual.

No More Foot Pain!

I bought these at the recommendation of my brother and because they were on sale. I wish I had bought 3 pairs of them. They are the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn and I hope they bring them back. I do not really like the look of the other "more dressy" shoes. These fit my lifestyle (I teach high school math) perfectly. I keep checking to see if someone returned a pair that is in my size because I definitely want at least one more pair.
