The Irish sailing boots have been developed over a number of decades bringing important design details from Formula one racing tyres to provide the ultimate outsole grip for offshore sailing footwear.
Leather is combined with GORE-TEX® technology to offer protection in the most demanding of environments. The involvement by Dubarry with VOR teams continues a long proud history of association with this race since the early Whitbread days.
Built for the ocean, say Dubarry, the Crosshaven Boot is designed for high performance when facing the most challenging of elements. Crosshaven’s most striking feature is the integral gaiter, which is made with a lightweight, high abrasion, water repellant fabric and adjustable draw-cord collar that secures foul weather gear and prevents wash back.
It also houses a drainage mesh for optimal water release and features high-visibility bands. It is thermally insulated, utilising a 350g GORE-TEX® Duratherm membrane for extra warmth and waterproofness, combined with a thermally-lined footbed, which provides the boot with full insulation. Reinforced toe and heel parts utilise Dubarry’s unique D-Chassis System.
This two-part foot support system uses a moulded RPU frame that minimizes heel pronation by adding extra support, protection and control. Crosshaven also has finger pulls for easy foot entry and ExtraFit™ sizing.
