New Zhik 470 Sailing Boots

The new Zhik 470 dinghy boots are coming and we couldn't be more exited to see 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 470 sailing boot, it's the evolution of the very popular Zhik 460 sailing boot. The 460 has by far been a popular dinghy boot especially with skiff sailors and those who want more feel to their sailing.

Zhik 470 Dinghy Boots - high cut 2mm 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.
