The Ultimate Performance Sailing Footwear

At ArdMoor we sell a comprehensive all round collection of technical sailing footwear. From traditional handcrafted deck shoes, practical water sports shoes and boots through to the most advanced sailing footwear technology available for the serious sailors crossing the Southern ocean.

Boating shoes are designed specifically for each type of on-board activity. The key features to all modern sailing footwear are a good non-marking sole and a low profile grip for stability on all types of wet slippery surfaces to keep you safe and secure underfoot.

Also, boating shoes are designed not to damage or scratch the deck of your boat by preventing small stones and grit from becoming stuck in the tread. Sailing shoes have changed dramatically from the first leather shoes designed to protect sailor’s feet from the sea salt and rain.

Now, thanks to the technical materials available, sailors can push the boundaries further and for longer, safe in the knowledge that their footwear is designed to perform in testing conditions.

Below, we have listed some of the types of sailing footwear available at ArdMoor which have been designed to suit your specific needs as well as personal preferences.

Hybrid Sailing Trainers

Designed for serious sailors, hybrid sailing trainers are light, hardwearing and use a variety of multi-directional grip patterns which provide ultimate safety and protection. Shock absorbing midsoles ensure stability and comfort and the robust outer soles protect against the elements.

Sailing trainers are designed with drainage systems with fast drying fabrics and anti-microbial technology to keep your feet comfortable and in the best condition possible when out at sea for long periods of time.
