Feet comfort

I know a lot of people like to wear their Shoes in a kayak, but I wish you would try and branch out!

If you remove your footwear and paddle in bare feet or with a neoprene sock on or a paddling shoe…


… you will find that your feet will have a lot more room and will bind less with the seasock.

Also the seasock will last longer.

Winter paddling is too cold on the dainty feetsies?

Try using a pair of Goretex socks with some warm woolies underneath!


I know the Mec might be irrelevant for some…. try the REI site. They have a better selection anyway

  1. Yes, paddling barefoot, or wearing a neoprene sock is very comfortable, but once you step off the kayak the reverse is true. Trying to walk anywhere but on the smoothest sand becomes painful and quite dangerous. Barnacles and bare feet don’t mix too well.
    I have experienced this first hand with the Wisper. Now I wear booties with a good sole, or sandals, at all times.
