Hi All,
 
 
I'm after a new pair of boots after my Marinepool ones have developed holes in the soles after way too many years use.
 
Can anyone recommend a pair of boots for trapezing mainly and a bit of hiking( going to be used mainly for Tornado sailing but also a little bit of Laser sailing).
 
The important bit though is !!!!!
 
I don't like zips, laces, velcro etc etc. I just want a pair of boots that I can slip on and go racing.
 
What is out there????

I've got Rooster ones with no zips just velcro, but they are not lasting well.
The sole is now very smooth after a season and a half, due to our tarmac and concrete.
Might get Crewsaver ones next, they do some with no zips IIRC.
I sometimes sail a boat that's varnished inside, so zips are bad news.

If you can slip them on without zips, laces or velcro then they can slip off.
As a hiker only, I love my Aigles
