Darkfin Split-Toe Bootees


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

Comfortable and convenient

David N. on May 13th 2018

Once I got over the smell of latex, I enjoyed the convenience of their protection for my feet. They were also comfortable to wear and walk in.

Hi, i found the gloves

Chris W. on May 13th 2018

Hi, i found the gloves sweet for surfing, increased paddle power.. the split toe booties however need to be taller to cover the ankle. When i was kicking for a wave they seemed to fill with water and get loose, otherwise good on the wax and crossing rocks.. would definitely be keen on another pair that are taller.

Good booties

Mark K. on May 13th 2018

They need a couple tweaks in my opinion. I got the largest size and they are really tight. I have average sized feet but would like to have the option for a larger size. I understand they are designed to fit skin tight but a larger person may have a difficult time squeezing into a pair.
I am planning on purchasing more of these booties and if you can have them cut over the ankle it would meet my needs better. Thank you so much

Too soon to tell as I haven't been in the water yet. I'll know better once the lake is warm enough to swim in. Thank you.

Amazing bootees

Digant V. on May 12th 2018
I was in Waikiki where I used both the Booties and Gloves I bought, they worked amazingly, where the gloves helped paddling out to the surf very easy and the booties helped traction to stay on the board...

These are fantastic!
When surfing I generally keep my fingers together to start paddling, like low gear, and then as I pick up speed open my fingers for the last few paddles, like switching into high gear!
Fit is great, and grip on the board is improved.

Best booties

Mark R. on May 11th 2018
Perfect for kiteboarding! No need to adjust footsraps and tough enough for most anything on the ocean floor. The price is right too!

Great Product!!!

Michael K. on May 11th 2018
I recently purchased the Darkin Split Toe Bootees to wear during my summer kayaking trips on the river. After trying them on I instantly fell in love with them. I now wear them all the time around the house as they keep my feet warm and are really comfortable. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for something to wear that protects your feet but gives you the feel of going barefoot. Keep up the great work Darkfin!

Way too small

Brian H on Mar 31st 2016
So... I got the largest size they had, and while I have worn a size 13 in the not too distant past, I am currently wearing a size 14EE and I knew a bit of stretching was going to be in order. This is the first thing that makes me sad.. the lack of larger sizes in all DarkFin products. However.. when the size 11-12 arrived, from what I could tell, they wouldn't even fit a size 10 without some decent stretching.. I do know from experience that the XXL Gloves will stretch a bit and after a few wearings, they accommodate my XXXL (wide, not long) hands without undue discomfort. With strategic pulling, I managed to stretch the 2"+ distance to get over my heal. That wasn't too tight actually, but after a couple hours of wearing, it became evident that the right foot had a few pinch points. One was cutting the circulation of the big toe, and another was pressing on the tip of the next digit over, making a slowly growing pain there as well. The dimples on the bottom ended up sacrificing themselves to the fantastic stretching, and disappeared completely while being worn. I guess the only point I have to make here, is this. When ordering any of the DarkFin products, assume that their sizes run 1 to 2 sizes smaller than what you would normally find. XXL is like a L on me, and a size 11-12 is a 9-10 without extra stretching.
