Osprey Zipped Boot 5mm
If you’re planning on engaging in any water based activities in colder climates, wetsuit boots need to feature highly in your list of regular kit that will help you to get the most out of your sport. Whether that’s wild swimming, paddle boarding, cold water immersion, surfing, snorkelling, diving or anything else. Cold water can reduce body temperature and cause your body to try conserving energy, reducing the power and productivity you can put into the activity, and minimising the focus you are likely to have when it comes to making the right decisions in the water.
Wetsuit boots can help combat this. When your body experiences cold temperatures, which is inevitable when spending time in open water in colder climates, it first reduces circulation to your extremities, including your feet. This means that your feet are one of the first areas likely to grow cold, numb and even painful. Wetsuit boots help to conserve heat in this area and reduce direct contact with the cold water surrounding you.
These Osprey 5mm wetsuit boots are specially designed to maximise your ability and comfort in these conditions. Crafted from 5mm thick neoprene, they are great at conserving heat around your feet. While they are thick enough to stave off the cold, they are also flexible and malleable enough to allow you the movement you need while in the sea, pool or even an ice bath.
The boots are lightweight and flexible, ensuring that your movement isn’t inhibited and that you can focus on the task at hand. They feature a reinforced Vulc sole for protection against rocks or any other hard surfaces your feet may come into contact with.
In terms of comfort, they feature a nylone inner fabric with CR foam, that is soft, squishy and comfortable on your feet as you walk around on the beach or other surrounding areas.
