Serious Water Footwear for the Boating Professional

Men’s Submersible Boot

Sure, we shot this in a bathtub, but one wear and you might start wearing it in the tub too.

For the serious sailor or kayaker, footwear doesn’t get any better than this. In fact these submersible boots, made of genuine quick drying neoprene, were designed in conjunction with the US Sailing Team. Critical features include internal toe post and toe wrap for added balance and stability, and a non marking rubber outsole, making sure your swashbucklery leaves your deck still gleaming.

In terms of comfort, all I will divulge is that our resident Sports and Fitness guru Patrick Tuttle was caught wearing the Submersible Boots around in his living room, absorbed in an intense round of GTA IV. A disturbing yet somewhat appropriate scene, to say the least.

Figawi Rubber Boot

No amount of water shall stop ye.

Despite mimicking the traditional style of a rain boot, thanks to its non-marking super-tack rubber outsole with quadro-grip traction, you’re guaranteed sure footing even in the most precarious of conditions. The Figawi Rubber Boots are also designed to maintain warmth and from our tests on and off the water are quite comfortable, to boot. The traditional styling of navy color with white trim excudes a classic persona perfect for this Fall’s wardrobe. Inclement weather be dammed.

Cost: Submersible Boot ($70) | Figawi Rubber Boot @ $60
