I have the neo bodyline boots. Warm and comfortable.

Nowadays I wear an old pair of steel cap boots and a thick layer of merino socks. I find my feet are sensitive to walking on pebbles and stones.

Just got back from a fish.

Feet were bone dry when I took my boots off.

Excellent.

I use gum boots. They keep my feet warm and dry. Just make sure you launch carefully so you don't get water in them.Makes you look like a country bumpkin but they are versatile as you can use your boots around the property.

Still good.

Although they stink inside now - have to spray them with deodorant, the smell is gag inducing lol

Beach launching is fine as long as the waves don't go over the top rim, as water will find its way in no matter how tight you pull them against your calf.

I like the Palm Nova: http://palmequipmenteurope.com/product/nova" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And NRS Boundary Shoe: https://www.paddlerzone.co.nz/index.php ... cts_id=157" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

But I can't find anywhere in Auckland that sells these (I really want to try them on for fit before I buy).


Anyone know of where I can get my hands on one of these, or another boot that you can recommend?

Cheers.
I went to nz sailing in silverdale, got gul and rooster, what works for sailors works on the kayak. They have a good range plus have online sales. Which is handy when in Wanganui.
