THERMAL INSULATION WITH NEOPRENE
By trapping a thin layer of water around the feet, the neoprene boot works in two ways:
1. the trapped water inside the boot gradually warms up
2. heat transfer from the body decreases.
The boot and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
Neoprene is a closed-cell elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties
DESCRIPTION OF THE ANKLE BOOT
The upper of the Tribord neoprene sailing ankle boots are made of 100% neoprene (thickness: 4 mm) to ensure optimal thermal insulation.
The uniquely designed rubber sole provides excellent grip on smooth, wet surfaces, without marking the deck of the boat.
The fastening benefits from a YKK® zipper, and an extendible neoprene pleat, which makes it easier to get them on.
The rubber reinforcements at the instep ensure good support under the toe strap.
AN ECO-DESIGNED ANKLE BOOT
Our ankle boots are made from a limestone-based neoprene. The black colour of the neoprene, called Eco Carbon Black, is obtained by recycling used tyres. The adhesive used to assemble the textile and neoprene, called Aquaglue®, is water-based and solvent-free. The dope-dyed yarn process used for the black colour is water-efficient and environmentally friendly.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE
This ankle boot is a great choice for women, children, and men alike.
The ankle boot sizes on the large side. If you’re between 2 sizes, we’d recommend opting for the smaller size.
The boot was designed with the restrictions of leisurely sailing in mind. Our design choices make it suitable for other sports such as SUP (Stand-up paddleboarding), windsurfing, sea wading or even canoeing/kayaking.
