Moving about on a sailboat requires sure footing. For this reason, sailing shoes feature no slip and non-marking soles. Depending on the type of boat you sail and your range of activity, your sailing footwear needs will vary. Here you will find dinghy boots, offshore boots, sneaker style shoes sandals, flip flops and socks. Sandals and flip flops are the least protective, and as they slip on and off they are recommended for shore wear. Sailing shoes offer non slip soles and foot protection while onboard or ashore, and come in classic leather or high tech styles. The sneaker style shoes offer a sporty footwear solution for men and women, and are great for wear on a range of boat sizes for racing or active cruising. Sailing boots will range from flexible dinghy styles to waterproof and breathable offshore boots. Sailing socks are wicking and vary in insulating thicknesses. Waterproof or neoprene socks provide extra protection or insulation.
