Darkfin Split-Toe Bootees


Current stock: 0

The most comfortable and stable split-toe booties on the market!

You’ve never experienced a bootie with this combination of soft, supple feel, durability, and incredible grip performance. It’s like barefoot, but better! The Darkfin Split-Toe Bootee is built upon the same latex base as our industry leading Darkfin Power Gloves, sharing their legendary lightweight, “second skin” characteristics. While superficially similar to other split-toe booties on the market, there are a few key performance differences that set the Darkfin Split-Toe Water Bootee in a class by themselves:

Sure Grip Sole Technology
While other booties may have a textured sole, only Darkfin Split-Toe Booties have our exclusive Sure Grip Sole Technology. What makes Sure Grip Technology so much better? We have hand molded 100 individual grip nodules into the sole of our booties to deliver a wet grip that has to be experienced to be believed! Our Sure Grip Sole is so grippy, we’ve had surfers tell us they use dramatically less - or even NO - surf wax on their boards! Not ready to ditch the wax? No problem, Sure Grip Soles will work just as well with a waxed surface too.

Cotton Flocked Finish
Just like our Darkfin Power Gloves, the Split-Toe Bootee also features our innovative Cotton Flocked Finish applied to the entire surface of the bootee, including the Sure Grip Sole Nodules. The cotton fibers embed themselves in the latex - and when activated with water - allow for superb grip.

Seamless, One-Piece Design
Darkfin Split-Toe Bootees are created from a single hand-crafted mold so there are no seems, straps or Velcro to fail. Simply slip them on and you’re ready to go, no hassle and no fuss - and because there’s no structural weak points or apparatus to fail, you’ll spend less time adjusting and more time enjoying.

Darkfin Split-Toe Bootees are the ideal water shoe for surfing, scuba diving, SUP, kayaking, or just exploring a river or stream on your next camping trip. Available in a variety of both men’s and women’s sizes. This Water Bootee, like other great products made by Black Lagoon,  this Bootee is made in USA.

NOTE: In the image we use a different color to represent the Heavy Duty Bootie having two separate layers of latex, please be advised that the boots are only one color. Black.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: All our products are handmade with plant based materials that are 100% biodegradable. Every batch might be slightly different than the next. Although we try to be very strict with our quality control, some defects might go unnoticed and could make it through to the consumer. Please email us regarding any concerns you might have regarding issues such as layer separation, boils, or pin holes in the product. To extend the life of our products, store them in a Ziploc bag with some baby powder or our silicone spray. Please also note that if you leave or forget your gloves under sunlight they will begin to decompose rapidly.

Nice form fitting boot, not bulky

These are very form fitting and are not as bulky as some more traditional booties. I was looking for something more like a sock, I have seen kevlar socks but they are far more expensive and I think these will do the job I am looking at.

I did a ton of research before buying my bootees, because i really dislike wearing anything on my feet while surfing. Search no further, these are by far the best fitting, least invasive, super protective for your bootees. Lightweight yet heavy duty on the sole to protect you from sea urchins and sharp reefs. I'm used to surfing sandy bottoms, coming across these bootees has been my life saver. Now i can ride reef breaks with no worries. They fit like a glove, no water getting in, AND a little extra grip support on the board. Another plus is that they are biodegradable and the company is community giving friendly. It's a win win!! Highly recommended, GO FOR THE HEAVY DUTY FOR EXTRA PROTECTION. Also, they fit true to size...i have wide feet and wear a size 8, ordered women's 7-8 size, but would go for maybe an 8-9 next time I purchase a pair since my feet are a bit wide. Either way, they fit perfectly!
