Nothing makes your voyaging less comfortable that slogging around in wet leather moccasins all day. The solution, we'd like to suggest, is to buy a pair of our Tall Cruising Boots, so that you have plenty of overlap with your foul weather gear pants. These boots are made for us by Gill, and they provide a supple and protective rubber upper, combined with a non-skid sole. The inner sole can be removed to speed up drying should water find its way inside. These boots are also available in a shorter height if you prefer.

Rely on these tall boots when you want to stay dry and steady on your feet.

100% natural rubber boots have a broad fit to accommodate heavy socks and warm layers. Removable cushioned inner soles. Quick-drying polyester lining. Reinforced toes, instep, ankle and heel provide extra support and protection. Nonslip razor-cut soles with multi-directional wave cut grip. Imported.

  • Height: Mid-calf
  • Uppers: All natural rubber
  • Closure Type: Pull-on
  • Sole: Rubber, nonmarking, nonslip
  • Lining: Quick-dry polyester
  • Men’s whole sizes (subtract two sizes for women)

      Boots run about a half size too big so take that into account when purchasing. I needed a pair of boots for ocean fishing off my center console and these definitely fit the bill.

      Comments about Tall Cruising Boots:

      These boots are great and I should know this is my second go around with them. I purchased from West Marine a pair approximately six years ago and am now in the need of a new pair. They are extremely durable and easy to clean. Not to forget comfortable to wear. All these facts makes it a no brainer to purchase. I recommend them to all my friends and fellow fisherman for on and off the boat.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivered as per on line order. The service was excellent, as I had to exchange them at your Sarasota store. Clerk was very attentive and completed the transaction in an effective, courteous manner.

          Comments about Tall Cruising Boots:

          I had signed up to crew for a friend and help move their boat from San Francisco to San Diego. The last thing I wanted was to be out on a multi-day sail and have wet deck shoes. I had waited, perhaps, just a little too long to shop for boots and wasn't able to a variety of different sailing shop, but West Marine is near my house. I wavered a bit on whether to get the short or tall boots. In the end, I opted for the tall ones with the rational I could also use them for washing my car and not worry about water from the hose splashing down the boots.

          Another crew member on this trip also had WM boots, but had the short ones. In the end, I'm glad I went with the taller model.

          I wish WM offered 1/2 sizes (from searching online, I know Gill offers 1/2 sizes), but having a little extra room wasn't too bothersome when taking the boots on and off, and I did wear them with a thicker sock a couple times.

          I haven't used them on smaller boats so don't know if having a slightly longer footbed will impact me running to the foredeck. (It wasn't any problem during the six days sailing to San Diego.)

          I've read reviews discussing durability; however, I haven't had these long enough to assess how long these will last.

          The boots are a little on the heavy side, I think, but then, they are very reasonably priced, so I don't think I'll feel too bad if and when I need to get something more form fitting or something lighter for (future) racing. Regarding weight, I have a friend whose brand XXX boots are much lighter; however, he spend several hundred dollars for them. (As the saying goes, you make it strong, light or inexpensive ... but you can only choose two!)

          Only reason I hesitate to give it five stars is because I haven't used them in real inclement weather, so they reamin untesed in that regard.

                Great boot, made by Gill.
                Wears like iron with good soles and high boot tops.
                Great value.
                Would buy again if they wear out or are "borrowed" by shipmates.

                    These boots arrived in the winter time during an ice storm with lots of freezing rain. I wore them almost all day. They provided good traction and kept my feet dry if not warm. I will keep a pair of wool boot scocks near at hand for cold weather.
