Zhik's lightweight Low Cut Ankle Boots are designed for when you need high agility, great grip and a responsive feel through your feet on board your dinghy or paddleboard. As we are able to get back afloat, managing your personal safety, avoiding slips and staying on board is more important than ever.

Zhik's proprietary high grip, durable moulded rubber sole gives a confident and secure grip on wet decks or boards, making these a super all-purpose boot for sailing and watersports.

Perfect for warmer weather, they can be used with toe straps, foot straps or for trapezing. The foot is secured firmly in the boot with an adjustable strap and a reinforced rubber heel and upper offer protection and support.

An inner neoprene ankle seal keeps out water and debris, which is especially useful if launching from shingle beaches or wading in waters with sea anemones. Quick drying and fast draining, the Low Cut Ankle Boots are ergonomically designed for a firm, close and comfortable fit.

Zhik's new Split Toe Boots are perfect for high agility and balance. The advantage of the split toe is the additional flexibility and stability they can give with your big toe working independently from the rest of your foot. Your foot is incredibly stable inside the boot, which is particularly useful to ensure grip and avoid slipping on a surfboard, windsurfer or on a trampoline.

These super lightweight boots have a quick drying, fast draining, perforated neoprene upper, and are a go to choice for hotter days afloat.

The high grip, durable moulded ZK rubber sole wraps around the sides of the foot for additional traction during athletic movement. Designed with a close, ergonomic fit for comfort and reduced foot movement, the neoprene ankle seal and adjustable strap help to further secure the foot and keep debris out.
