We have Marine Footwear and Sailing Shoes for all types of sailing conditions from day sailing to winter offshore sailing. Deck shoes are traditionally made from leather or Nubuck and feature a rubber compound sole to stop you from slipping around on deck. The price ultimately depends on the quality of the leather and rubber sole. They also cope well with the inevitability of getting wet, especially with salt water. All our brands including footwear by Dubarry and Henri Lloyd have non marking soles that offer tread patterns designed to prevent any slipping on deck. You can be assured that all our branded products are technically designed for marine use. It is sometimes difficult to purchase footwear online, so we will offer free postage to exchange any pair, as long as you pay to return them! We have full size charts for all the brands to assist you or alternatively give us a call and we can sometime help as certain brands come up larger or smaller.
Thanks to advancing technology and innovative design deck shoes have come a long way. The soles are tough enough to stand up to the rigours of sailing, but remain deck-friendly. The advanced designs keep your feet glued to the floor, but without leaving unsightly marks on the surface of the vessel. One of the best shoes in recent years, the design is a timeless classic with customers purchasing this style again and again - highly recommended by our team for durability, quality and longevity.
We are often asked what is the best sailing deck shoe- this could be it! Similar in design to other Dubarry Deck Shoes, the Helmsman shoes is lined with Gore Tex, making the leather extremely breathable - ideal for wearing for long periods of time. Dubarry offer exceptional quality and you can always be assured of great grip and soft, durable leathers. By far the most superior boat shoe on the market.
More recently, many of the leading brands have designed sailing shoes that are extremely light in weight, comfortable and quick drying. The Gill Range of Deck Shoes may be the best overall in all three of these areas. The 3 eye style is by far the most popular, with a comfortable supportive insole, water resistant leather and 360 degree lace for secure fit. Additionally Gill have a footwear care range to help you keep your spanking new footwear looking that way for longer! Polishes, leather shoe conditioners and cleaners are just some of the treatments which can protect your deck shoes from the elements.
