Styles of Women’s Boating Shoes
Gone are the days of ladies’ boating shoes that put style ahead of function. At West Marine, you will find women’s boating shoes that look great and deliver reliable performance, whether you are fishing, sailing or spending time at the dock.
West Marine offers women’s boating shoes for virtually every water-related activity. Styles include water shoes, sandals, flip-flops, sneakers and iconic creations like Sperry’s original moccasin style boat shoes.
What should you look for in a boating shoe?
Look for quick-drying materials, arch supports and nonslip, nonmarking soles. Shoes that get drenched should include drain ports to let the water out. In light of the messy reality of fishing, footwear that is worn for fishing should be made of materials that are easy to clean and that repel stains. Brands to consider include Columbia, Sperry and XtraTuf.
Technical sailing shoes and sneakers from brands like Helly Hansen include non-marking soles, slip-resistant treads, and are flexible and breathable so you can nimbly move across the deck in comfort and safety. Quick drying materials means you won’t be stuck all day with soggy feet.
For cold, wet activities on deck, waterproof boat shoes and boots are a great option. Made of durable and flexible materials, ankle or taller boots keep your feet dry and comfortable all day, in any weather.
Of course, a supportive pair of flip flops are a must for anyone enjoying time on or near the water and West Marine has a broad selection from brands like Roxy, Reef and Hari Mari. With sturdy straps and arch supports, you can expect all-day comfort from these sandals.
