Wetsuit Boots and Shoes For Paddlers
White Water River Shoes, Neoprene Boots and Wetsuit Socks
Suitable water shoes are always essential items of kit whichever style of paddling you are embarking upon. Not only do they provide protection for your feet against sharp pointy objects found under the water, they also provide protection for drysuit/dry trouser feet, not to mention protection from the cold temperatures often experienced in the UK throughout the year. We stock a wide range of paddling footwear, ranging from basic, warm wetsuit boots, right through to technical river shoes where grip on slippery river banks is of prime importance.
Extremely warm, yet affordable 6.5mm neoprene bootie. Featuring a thick sole for walking on uneven surfaces, and they are really easy to remove thanks to the full side zip. Very popular with newcomers into the sport and those wanting warm feet each time they go out paddling.
A high performance three quarter water shoe, with a titanium, therm-fibre lined neoprene, for additional warmth. Also featuring Velcro adjustable straps for a secure fit, and a diamond traction sole and toe protection for rocky areas. Perfect as an all-round shoe for all types of water-sport.
A quick-drying, self draining water shoe from NRS, that can be worn both on and off the water. Low profile with a sticky rubber sole, the heels can also be crushed flat so they can be slipped on and off easily, for a more casual look. Fashion meets function, and popular with all water users, including stand up paddle boarders.
A firm favourite with club-boaters and white water enthusiasts across the UK. Revamped with fewer seams and tougher materials, the Gradients also feature a Vibram sole for grip for wet riverbanks. With a high-top boot cut, they provide much needed ankle support on portages and over difficult terrain.
Waterproof and extremely warm in cold conditions, these boots are individually factory tested to ensure waterproof performance. Great for damp, soggy put-ins and portages and also fit well over a drysuit when out at sea or fishing. Rated highly by sea kayakers used to wet launching, and other paddlers looking to protect their composite boats without the need to seal launch.
Perfect for adding an extra layer of insulation to your feet, or protecting built-in drysuit socks. These thin neoprene wetsuit socks don't add much bulk, and can be worn inside existing shoes as a liner, they also have a titanium lining and are quick to dry.
With plenty of ankle support, combined with Stealth Rubber, the Canyoneer Mark 3's are hugely popular with rescue professionals and river guides. Now discontinued, and only available in certain UK sizes.
