Good piece of soft neoprene boots.

I use them playing beach volleyball during cold mornings or night - work perfect. Very comfy, no sand going inside during the game.

A good lightweight thin / non bulky sole boot

Great feeling boot. Nice and thin (which is exactly what I was after) I don't like a chunky thick boot. I also don't like too thick a sole on the footwear. First trying on, I thought I'd made a mistake and they were a bit cheap feeling and flimsy. However within seconds, I realised they were a nice thin, with good feel through the sole. They are basically wetsocks (which are rubbish in my opinion) but with added rubber support to make them much better. I know all surf boots are kind of, but that's the best way I can describe them. Think a little better wetsock. If you need a thicker warm sturdy surf boot, then these are not the ones. **beware sizes! I purchased a size10.5 - 11 UK. I'm a size 10. When holding these up to a size 10 trainer they were about 3-4cm shorter! Way too small to be a 10.5/11. Ive returned them and gone 1 size up to the 11/12.

Good quality

Perfect fit for my wife and good quality keeping feet nice and warm

Fixed my toe problem

While kitesurfing in my old boots got a big toe injury. Holding against the pill of the kite my big toe was too tight in the old boots, which had this pointy shaped nose. These have a much better sole shape which spreads the forward load between all toes and is not tight on the toe sides! Reccomended. I had to buy them 1 size bigger 45-46 while my normal size is 44. Tried 43-44 in the shop and just felt a bit too short.

Great watersport boot

Really pleased with these boots, we used them for a week long holiday at the beach for fishing & wading. Tough to get on but all wetsuit boots are! Kids stayed in them all day with warm feet.

Passt und hält warm

Grösse 47-48 passt bei Schuhgrösse 48 gut. Liegt satt am Fuss an. Verarbeitung sehr gut. Laufen auf Kiesweg ist angenehm. Bei Wassertemperatur 12°C getestet und zufrieden. Bewegungsfreiheit sehr gut. Würde ich wieder kaufen.

Leider wieder retour

Die Schuhe waren viel zu kurz, das Material ist gut und die Haftung sicher auch, aber leider mussten sie zurück

Wie gewohnt gute Qualität

Läuft viel Wasser rein

Liegen nicht eng genug an, dadurch läuft sehr viel Wasser in die Schuhe. Ich werde mir beim nächsten mal die Version mit Schnalle bestellen. Allerdings handelt es sich hier ja auch um ein sehr günstiges Produkt, dafür sind die Schuhe ok.

Preis Leistung gut

Einfacher Einsteiger Schuh. Fällt größenkonform aus. Das Anziehen bedarf etwas Geschick und Übung. Der Gummi über dem Spann ist für mich etwas eng und leider nicht verstellbar. Hält bei mäßig temperiertem Wasser einige Zeit die Füße warm und erfüllt damit seinen Zweck.

sehr gut, trotz seltsamer Form

die Schuhe haben sich bewährt beim Jollensegeln im Trapez. Man hat genug Gefühl und die Sohlen sind ausreichend rutschfest. Etwas seltsame Form mit dieser Kinke neben dem großen Zeh. Die bräuchte ich nicht, mein zweiter Zeh ist genauso lang wie der erste. Aber drückt auch nicht so dass es nicht ginge. Die Schuhe lassen sich (auch ohne Reißverschluss) gut an- und ausziehen. Die Füße sind warm geblieben.Trocknen tun die Schuhe, wie alle Neoprensachen, nur sehr langsam und fangen dann schnell an zu müffeln. Trick: Silikat-Katzenstreu (dieses weiße mineralische) reinschütten bis ganz oben, die Schuhe sind im Nu trocken. Lässt sich rückstandlos wieder rausschütten. Die Streu ist sehr lange immer wieder verwendbar weil sie ein vielfaches dieser Menge an Flüssigkeit aufsaugen kann.


jederzeit wieder

Stay warm for longer with our thermal accessories! each temperature range has its own outfit...

When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories: - in warm water and temperate water (>63°F) => neoprene low booties. - in cold water (54 - 63°F): High booties (boots) and gloves. - in very cold water (45 - 54°F): High booties (boots), gloves, hood, and hooded top...

How to choose the right boots

The 1st selection criterion when choosing a surf bootie is water temperature. Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year. Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range: Warm water above 68°F. Temperate water between 63 and 72°F. Cold water between 54 and 63°F. Very cold water between 45 and 54°F. Visit the site to find out the temperature of your spot.

Choose the right size

Surfing shoes and booties should be a very tight fit to ensure the best possible thermal efficiency. It is perfectly normal for it to feel like they are too tight when tried on dry. Choosing well-fitting shoes and booties ensures a better fit and prevents them from swelling with water in use.


The 3 mm surf booties are made of neoprene to ensure better thermal comfort. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 3 mm. The neoprene is made from an elastomer foam with insulating properties. We test and guarantee the thermal quality of our neoprene materials.

Watertight assembly

The seams are stitched and glued for a watertight seal and durability. The seams are "blind-stitched": The thread does not go all the way through the neoprene, preventing water from getting through. The absence of threads on the inside avoids irritation and chafing. Patches for comfort and reinforcement are strategically placed on the inside in sensitive areas.

Water sports booties

Our surf booties are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, sea wading, or SUP (stand-up paddleboarding).

Our wetsuit models are also classified by water temperature range: Warm water, Temperate water, Cold water. Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers.
