  • Zhik 170 Sailing Boots

    Zhik 170 boots are the new model of the Zhik 160 sailing boot which has been a fantastic summer sailing boot.

    The Zhik 170 sailing boot is a low cut ankle boot with a tough construction making a fantastic all round sailing boot which is great for hiking and trapezing.

    This boot comes with an additional lip over the top to prevent stones and other debris getting inside the boots.

    Zhik have added even more grip to their already fantastic boot grip.

    Sizing and Fitting Guide

    Please take the time to measure your feet for the Zhik 170 sailing boots as we find a large majority of customers return the boots because they are too small.

    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

Christoper Griggs
Best boots ever

I have the 270 boots 2020, But these 170 boots are great, much easier to get on and off and very grippy and comfortable

Steven Bell
Zhik boots

Really comfortable and great for autumn and spring sailing

Richard Morrell
Zhik 170 boots Very good

Sorry for the delay, I was waiting to use them.
These were purchased for sailing an International 14. My other Zhik boots are good but they kept getting grit in them whilst launching and therefore became uncomfortable.
Andrew suggested the Zhik 170 boots, he said that he hadn’t tried them himself but he thought they might work.
I used them on Saturday for the first time and they are great, I just got on and sailed the boat without thinking about them. As we were training I swapped with the crew, this was when I noticed how good they are for crewing as I moved around the cage without slipping in the medium to light airs in the Solent.
My son, who I sail with, has the split toe version which he likes.
