Gill Hiking and Trapeze footwear is designed with specific sailing purposes in mind. Hiking boots offer high levels of traction and strong stability. They have ample protection on the top of the foot to reduce wear due to chafing from hiking straps, as well as reinforcement to provide ankle support. Trapeze footwear offers more flexibility for greater feel. The lightweight Gill Skiff Boot has an internal split toe design, providing the high performance skiff racer with maximum traction and swift movement around the boat. The thin sole design allows you to feel the boat and assures that as much of your foot is in contact with the boat at any one time. Gill also has a versatile performance water shoe with high levels of grip and a low cut design.
