Warm Booties

Postby Buck » Fri Jan 19, 2018 2:05 pm

I'm fairly new to kayaking and to this group. I'm strictly a recreational paddler who paddles the bays for exercise. I've been looking to buy neoprene booties of which there are a lot out there, with reviews all over the place. I got started mid April this past year and was out once or twice in early November, flannel shirt weather basically. I always get in from the water so my feet are always wet. My Tevas which are fine for the warm weather are torture early and late. It's this cooler weather I want the booties for. I have wide feet, which complicates buying on-line. Does anybody have a current favorite, or any other advice to give? Thanks in advance.

Hi Buck,

For cold weather paddling my go to booties are the NRS Boundary Boots

https://www.nrs.com/product/2308/nrs-boundary-shoe

There's some ankle height stuff too.

Staying warm and dry while paddling is always a good thing!

Good luck!
Paddle with a big smile, its contagious :D

I agree with Jordan about the NRS Boundary boots for cold water. They are about 14” high , so you can usually get in the boat without getting water in your boot.

Hi There

I like the Mukluk boots by Chota in the Spring and Fall. They are tall enough to keep any water from going over the top.
I wear a pair of socks to keep the feet warm

In the Summer I use the booties that go over my ankles. Make sure they have sole that allows you walk over cobble
