The high grip sneakers that are #MadeForWater

Zhik are introducing a new edition of their highly popular ZKG watersports shoes for 2018. These modern, sneaker-style shoes incorporate a new, quick-drying mesh inner and outer fabric containing an integrated neoprene upper with more and larger perforations for maximum air flow and water drainage.

The stretchy neoprene is super-comfortable and gives the foot excellent protection. Designed to be as happy below water as above, they are easy to wash and quick to dry. And for those with old fashioned concepts of neoprene footwear, the inner shoe has an anti-bacterial treatment too to deal with odours.

Featuring a stiffer midsole and moulded heel cup for added support, overall the shoe is lighter than the original ZKG.

The ultra high grip, non-marking proprietary ZK soles are soft and flexible, and designed to instantly expel water upon contact with any deck surface. The limpet-like grip makes the ZKG the shoe of choice for active crew work on any type of moving deck surface, from high gloss varnish to GRP decks and hatches with no deck grip.

Designed for water whilst looking great on shore the ZKG is a highly versatile shoe for all watersports. Whether jumping from race boat to rib, powerboat to pontoon, on your SUP, windsurfer or a rocky beach, these all round shoes will go everywhere in your kit bag.

Available in:

  • Ash/red, Black and Navy in size UK 4.5 to 12.5 / Euro size 37 - 47
  • Grey/cyan size UK 2.5 to 12.5 / Euro 35 - 47
