Our Cognac & Vanilla Giller is so good looking that Mrs Tucket allows us to wear them out on date night. The Cognac color looks perfect onboard and in the boardroom (if you are lucky enough to work for a Yacht builder). Developed to stay comfortable regardless of conditions, the patented Tucket Giller design has 24 drain holes to quickly allow water to exit. Remember, dry feet are happy feet.
We recommend sizing down if you are a half-size.
Classic Loafer / Boat Shoe / Deck Shoe / Driver Shoe
- The Giller. We named it this because of the gills on the sides of the shoe. There are 12 gills to disperse water rapidly. These gills also serve as natural flex points for the shoe to enhance comfort when walking.
- Marine Grade Construction. Unlike leather deck shoes, the Tucket Giller is designed to fully submerge in water and dry fast.
- Water Friendly. This shoe is made to wear sockless so you can walk in water. Canvas or leather deck shoes will fill with water, become heavy, pull from your feet and take multiple days to fully dry. Sandals will slip off your feet when walking through knee deep water.
- Fast Draining. We built in 24 drain holes with a unibody construction. This is the fastest draining and drying boat shoe available today. It takes days for a canvas or leather deck shoe to dry. The Tucket Giller drains instantly and can be dried with the simple wipe of towel.
- Patent Pending Outsole. Tucket has developed a unique outsole made up of multiple pods that readily channel large volumes of water. Each pod has a set of angled treads that are counter-angled to the next tread. This makes for superior grip no matter which direction your force demands.
- Slip Resistant. Boater tested and proven. This proprietary tread material has passed slip testing for occupational footwear.
- EVA Footbed. This is the same material most athletic shoe brands use. This makes for superior comfort under foot and helps significantly reduce foot fatigue.
- Lightweight. One shoe in size 11 weighs only 8.4 ounces. Compared to a popular leather deck shoe which weighs 14 ounces. Plus, wet or dry, the Tucket Giller does not change weight. Once wet, a canvas or leather deck shoe will weigh significantly more.
- Slip On. Easy entry.
- Proudly Made in the USA!
- Hand Wash with mild soap and warm water.
- Dries in Seconds. Just wipe off and wear. Even if you don't wipe it off it will dry very quickly, unlike canvas or leather deck shoes which will stay wet for days.
- Odor Resistant. If you get a hint of an odor simply wash with mild soap and water.
- Shoe Laces. Take caution when pulling on the laces. They are strictly for decoration and not designed to tighten the shoe. Pulling up aggressively could damage your shoe.
I've worn boat shoes for many years, but when they get wet, the inside takes forever to dry. With Tuckets, water goes in and right out and they dry quick. They are at home on the boat getting wet, beach and around town. This shoe saves me from swapping back and forth. I call them my Sperry Croc Siders as they marry the best features into one smart looking design.
I've had two pair of these shoes for about 1 1/2 years and have worn them extensively, not only on my boat but also around town during the warmer months. Just purchased two additional pairs as my first set have begun to wear out no doubt due to my extensive off boat use. Had I only used them as boat shoes, I'm sure they would have lasted longer. Great boat shoe.
Was very skeptical on whether these would be comfortable or how they would look in person. But they have exceeded expectations on both comfort and appearance.
Shoe is very durable and well constructed. Pad of shoe is comfortable and the traction on the bottom is excellent.
These shoes are great! Incredible traction and very comfortable. No smell from salt water use. Clean up easy and dry immediately. always ready when you are. Definitely my 'go to' shoe.
These are the best boat shoes on the market. They shed water like crazy, dry lightning fast , are very comfortable, plus they are made in the USA. Tucket Footwear stands behind their product, have top notch customer service. DO NOT HESITATE BUY A PAIR TODAY.
I am Drew Cherry Founder/CEO of Drift Away Outdoors ... I saw these shoes in a magazine and fell in love at first sight !!! Ordered right away... Our team members are very avid outdoorsmen and encounter rough terrain on oyster bars fishing the flats of Florida, kayaking around shoals where we may have to get out and push the kayaks with rocks, etc... This shoe is perfect !!! Not only are they comfortable, they can withstand any terrain I put them in. My team will have these shoes for our outdoor adventures and we will continue to push the sales of this shoe!!! Incredibly awesome product job well done ... The sole of the shoe is great for the oyster bars and rocks, and the water runs right out of them !!! Best water shoe to date. You think they would slip once wet ?!?! Wrong ... Better yet, they adhere to your foot so they won't slip off !!! Lifelong customer for sure ... Not to mention the service of the staff is an absolute honor to deal with !!!
Theses shoes are comfortable, they drain water amazingly well. Look good too.
I have no boat, but I live in a hot and moist enviroment in Costa Rica. So thought this idea of the holes would keep my bare feet dry, and yes, they do. The holes allow air to my foot and thus no sweating at all. Plus the the design is marvelous, turns heads, specially women who like men in nice mocassins. Do highly recommend. Also, its fast shipping adn responsible.
These shoes are amazing, if you know just a little bit about boat shoes. They are meant to be worn without socks, and require the oils and moisture from your feet to break in, which may take a few days. Once they're broken in, they're ridiculously comfortable! Bandage up spots that might cause blisters while you break them in, and put lotion on your feet before you out them on for the first time, it speeds up the breaking in process!
