I have always thought the TYPHOON ROCK BOOTS look good for boating but never got round to getting any!

I used the same but I just wear crocs now, I found the Rock Boots held a lot of water, coupled with latex socks on my dry suit my feet were always freezing.

The crocs let the water out and my feet stay warm.

We do a lot of dinghy sailing and the Gul dinghy boots are good value for the money and hold up well to lots of use.

What is well worth the money for the extra comfort/warmth is the thin socks designed to go over drysuit latex feet, put them on your bare feet .

They keep your feet warm and make taking the boots on and off easier.

Any of the hard sole types beat the standard wetsuit bootees hands down, particulararly when there's shingle etc to walk on.

I use the Typhoon Rock Boots, but there's others out there.

So you have the rock boots with socks attached or without and separate socks?

I was told to get them
Without socks and drill the sole to allow them To Drain then use separate socks

I keep the socks in and definitely don't drill any holes they are a pain in the arse to get on and off but I find they work well with drysuit latex boots and just with bare feet and shorts in the summer. Good all round solid soled boot imho. 👍

Thanks all for the advice... in the end I styled myself after Bombardc2 with the Gull 5mm All Purpose Dinghy boots https://www.wetsuitoutlet.co.uk/2016...6-p-15331.html and they arrived today.

With my true shoe size of 9.5 it was good advice to go down to a 9 and these are snug but not tight.... actually I'm quite enjoying their feel around the house... is that wrong?

Hopefully they'll see proper action as soon as tide and weather plus a free day coincide.
