Zhik Sailing Boots Sizing Guide

Zhik boots are fantastic and they're one of the most popular items we sell. However, if you've tried a pair on, or have spoken to anyone about them you'll know that the sizing isn't great.

Zhik sailing boots have always come up small, Zhik have made adjustments but you still need to go up a size. Follow our detailed sizing information so you get the right size the first time.

Being an online company we've worked hard to make the sizing information as clear as possible to avoid the frustration of having to return them to us for a swap.

How to measure your feet for Zhik boots

  1. Place your foot on the ground with your heel against the wall
  2. Measure the distance from the wall to the tip of your longest toe in mm
  3. Do this with both feet and use the measurement of the longest foot to find the correct size
  4. Add approx. 20mm to the measurement taken
  5. Use Japan (mm) measurements on the size guide to find your size. Go up to the next size if you are between sizes
