The Lomo Aqua Wetsuit Boot is no exception. At £23 they are an absolute bargain.
The Lomo Aqua Boot are constructed from 5mm neoprene with a treaded hard sole. The heel and toe areas are re-enforced with rubber and the deep YKK zip has a neoprene gusset behind it. All the seams are stitched and glued.
In UseThe boot is very warm and comfortable. The sole has excellent grip from it’s treaded pattern and is remarkably thick for a wetsuit boot. This makes it superb for waking around on stoney/rocky shorelines.
The high cut of the boot means it completely covers a drysuit sock, fitting neatly under the ankle seal. This provides excellent protection for what can be a delicate area of a drysuit.
I have found that as a size 9/9.5 (UK) opting for a Size 10 boot is snug enough, with room for a baggy drysuit sock to fit inside.
A superb round-up of footwear, which speaks highly of the Lomo Aqua Boots can be found on Douglas Wilcox’s excellent blog.
We think this is one of the best wetsuit boots boots on the market today. No poor quality thin soles here! This is a high quality, well made boot that we’re sure you’ll be happy with.
We originally designed this boot as a dive boot but were also quickly swamped by orders from sea kayakers who loved the sole of the boot. Its tread pattern is deep enough to give you grip on rocky ground but is designed so it wont bring stones and gravel into your boat.
