You just finished putting on your wetsuit (which is a task itself) and now it’s time to put on your wetsuit boots. But what if you don’t know how to put on wetsuit boots? Don’t worry, you’re not alone in this. No one said dressing in neoprene from head to toe would be easy. That’s why we’re here to help! Wetsuit boots can be a little tricky to master. With these simple steps though, you’ll be good to go!
Wetsuit boots are fantastic for virtually any water sport. Most general purpose and surfing wetsuit boots are pull-on. Meanwhile, a lot of dive wetsuit boots have a zipper on the side of the boot. Regardless of the water sport, zip wetsuit boots are your best bet if you just can’t master the art of putting on neoprene boots.
Wetsuit boots provide warmth and grip and protect your feet from getting scratched. Whether you need a nice 3mm neoprene boot for warm to cool waters or you’re braving those super-cold-might-get-hypothermia waters and need a toasty 7mm wetsuit boot, there are tons of options. You can get split toe or even round toe – it’s up to your personal preference!
Before we dive into the steps we have just one piece of quick advice – you can always use a plastic bag to help you slide in the boot OR use a pair of wetsuit socks to glide right in (our favorite method).
And there you have it – now you are a master at putting your wetsuit booties on! Remember that booties should fit snug not loose – just a little tighter than sneakers. And wetsuit socks can be your best friend at getting in and out of the boots! Need a visual of this process? Check out the video below!
