    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

Very comfortable

Very comfortable but do measure your foot as suggested and they fit perfectly......don't go by your shoe size!

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Thanks also for the comment on sizing, it's very important when buying Zhik sailing boots. We hope you love your new Zhik 170 sailing boots.

Zhik 170 Sailing Boots

Worn three times now (whilst sailing). Well made, good grip and comfy, if a little tight - especially taking off. I ordered a size larger, as advised - (I have high arches) - might have been better to have gone a further size up.

Zhik 170 boots

First time on Sun 11th. Didn’t realise I had them on! Your advice re ordering a size larger, correct. Rinsed them after use following manufacturers instructions. Appear to be well made. Rgds. Robert NB Bit of a struggle getting them off!

Wanted a low cut boot and these deliver

This was my first Zhik purchase having spent some time looking for a low cut boot for the summer and having used them a few times now, I'm really pleased with the boots. They offer great grip in the boat and on the slipway, are comfy to wear and provide good protection. As the guidance says, these come up small, so make sure you follow the guidance to measure and don't be surprised if the size you are ordering is one or two sizes bigger than your normal. I'm normally 8.5-9 and measured at a 10 so that's what I ordered and they are a snug fit. I'd need an 11 if wearing socks.

Zhik boots

wanted these for Kayaking, needed a strap to hold the boot in place if I had to do a muddy get out. I ordered one size larger, but these still did come up very small, Sent them back to Sailing Chandley who was really helpful and kindly sorted out getting in a larger size in, even though they hadn't stock in the larger size. The boots are great.

Best ever

Quite honestly the best pair I’ve ever had, strong but flexible soles with comfortable uppers which I feel I could if needed wear all day and all for a competitive price. As for the size recommendations they’re spot on, definitely go one size bigger than usual.
Overall I’m very happy with these and hope to use them for a long time.
