Is there a bootie women can wear that would make large crew rowing shoes fit better?
Great question. I choose to wear neoprene wetsuit boots when I’m in that situation. We don’t sell them I’m afraid.
The other thing is to “double up” on socks – pick big thick ones which are knee – high and double them over.
A third option (often combined with one above) is to take a roll of electrical tape and wind that around the instep of the shoe. Take care that you can still get your feet out of the shoes and that the heel restraint straps work because you don’t want to be trapped in the boat if it capsizes.
Any other readers have suggestions that could help?
