New Zhik 170 Sailing Boots

If you want to get your hands on a pair of the Zhik boots and be one of the first then why not pre order with us, as soon as we have them we'll dispatch straight to your door step.

So, the new Zhik 170 sailing boot, is the evolution of the very popular summer sailing wetsuit boot the Zhik 160 sailing boot. The 160 has been very popular, especially through the summer months.

  • Improved deal design to stop debris entering the boot

Zhik 170 dinghy sailing boots

We already know that Zhik test all of their products with their World class sailor teams who include World and Olympic champions, these sailing boots would have been through a rigourous testing, feedback and improvement cycle to ensure the right product is launched first time.

The key things we think are going to make a big difference, apart from a colour scheme we love, are:

  • The grip - how can Zhik make this better we ask??
  • Better fit
  • Seal to stop debris getting in - there is nothing more annoying that getting a stone in your dinghy boots

Traditionally Zhik dinghy boots and sailing shoes have come up small and we're always dealing with exchanges. We don't yet know how they are going to fair against the exisiting boot sizing but one of the first things we'll be doing is trying them on to let you know.
