Purchased these for my husbands first sailing trip. He’s just back and has given them 5 stars for comfort and keeping his feet dry. This is March in Scotland and they had some of the wettest,coldest windiest weather the skipper has seen. One of the other trainee crews wives had purchased a “cheap pair “ he will not be wearing them again!!
I normally wear a size 4.5 in a boot but read other reviews that said these boots are a generous fit, so took a risk that size 4 would be OK. Absolutely no worries at all, size 4 is perfect and I can even wear them with thick socks. The boots are comfy, stylish and give me a good grip on deck. Very happy.
grippy, waterproof, comfortable for everything - walking, running, pushing against hard corners when tugging on the mainsheet/jibsheet. They come slightly roomy, but having just spent a week in -2C with three pairs of socks on - this was no bad thing.
