R 349,00 Décathlon
Purchased this boot for kitesurfing purposes.
I like the fact that the thumb is left alone. The shoes are pretty light.
But I don't like having sand in my shoes .... The holes to let the water out in the front are to big, and when you walk on the beach, sand is going in this way which is really annoying.
Another improvement should maybe be the string which is not elastic and makes it hard to put the shoes on (even open at the maximum)
Got these for kitesurfing in the sunshine where I didn't want to wear my normal wetsuit boots. A great buy, nice and thin so you get good feel, great for walking on any surface and low enough so there's bad tan lines are avoided.
Drawstring and velco combination kept them on really well and the velco did not get in the way of the bindings on the kiteboard. The holes in around the toes help them drain so no filling up with water.
All in all a great product and good value.
