Kite U.S. Forums _ Knowledge Center _ Boot Suggestions

Posted by: rltele Aug 7 2006, 11:01 AM

What are some of the preferred booties you guys are using? I've tried dive boots and water shoes and both seem to hinder my ability to get in and out of my adjustable bindings. Also, board feel is compromised. I've been riding barefoot but the soles of my feet are taking a beating with dune grass, zebra mussels, rocks etc. Any suggestions and sources would be appreciated. I'm not looking for warmth as much as protection from the above menaces. Thanks in advance.

Booties are like condoms they provide great protection but you lose a lot of feeling when using them.

Get some designed for kiteboarding or surfing. They have a thinner sole and will give a little better feeling and performance.
