STAFF REVIEW

Great High End Creek/Canyoneer Boots

Date:May 5, 2012
I loved these booties for what they are intended for; Creeking and Canyoneering.
While portaging they feel nice under foot, seem to grip very well. I love the climbing inspired edges!
They are a great fit, feel nice and secure.
Only downfall with fit is that the top small velcro is very loose when done up. The other 2 velcros do a great job though.
I wore them surfing one day to test warmth and they felt pretty cold to be honest. Under a drysuit though, or with thick socks they are more than enough.
If you creek or canyoneer, these are your saviours from basic neo-booties
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Grippy
Cons: colder than expected, top velcro does nothing

Used for salt water fly fishing

Date:March 13, 2012
I used this boot outside it's intended purpose but it worked well. It had adequate support, didn't seem to spook any fish (due to color) and had good traction walking on sharp rocks. I wore ti barefooted and then used a gator to keep the sand out. It looks as if I will get many more uses out of it as well.
Pros: Durable
Cons: a little shallow for me in the toe box

Excellent quality

Date:July 4, 2011
Well made, sturdy sole with lots of support due to an ankle strap as well as a strap across the instep, and I like the extra width. I would recommend purchasing by the European size, especially if you are female, as the sizes are indicated as "unisex."
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: length a little short for the size i ordered

Bootielishous

Date:June 11, 2011
Well thought out for creeking or canoeing. The boot provides great protection and straps on well. The boldering sole is a nice touch. Not for low profile kayaks or kayakers with big feet and long legs. A wee bit on the expensive side, so they had better last for years.
Pros: Comfortable, Secure fit, great sole
Cons: Bulky

Good Creeking Booties

Date:May 9, 2011
Not bad booties. The main double Velcro is great but the secondary Velcro holding the ankle isn’t the greatest and with a dry suit it can feel loose. Make sure you pull on the fuzzy Velcro when doing them up and you should be fine. The toe rubber is a very nice feature when climbing and smearing, The tread is also very good on snow and ice.
Pros: Stylish, Comfortable, very grippy
Cons: Poor Fit
