New Zhik 270 Sailing Boots

We're really excited here at Sailing Chandlery about the launch of the new Zhik dinghy sailing boots range. They should arrive with us towards the end of February just in time for the RYA Dinghy Show.

If you want to get your hands on a pair 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.

So, the new Zhik 270 sailing boot, it's the evolution of the very popular Zhik 260 sailing boot. The 260 has by far been the most popular sailing boot we've sold, we literally can't keep them in stock. The 260 has been long lasting, comfortable and a great all rounder for hiking through to trapezing.

Zhik 270 Dinghy Boots - high cut 4mm neoprene sailing boot

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 the amazing colour scheme, are:

  • The grip - how can Zhik make this better we ask??
  • Better fit
  • Quick lacing system - less messing around to get on the water 

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 existing boot sizing but one of the first things we'll be doing is trying them on to let you know.
