Help Me Find Booty!!!!!!

I really need some help finding some good girls sized creeking booties.

I am not a fan of the Teva ones (too hard to get on and my drysuit booties won't fit) and the new Keen ones do not come in small enough sizes. The regular water tennis shoes do not fit in the Punk Rocker comfortably...pretty much not at all.

Please help!!!!

My play boating booties almost sent me sliding down a very steep gorge in CA a few weeks ago, I really need something with more stability and grip that is small enough to fit in the Punk.

Thanks!
Christine

I would suggest you give these a try:



You can get them cheap now before the sale to Teva is finalized.

I have given up on wearing a bootie in any of my yaks completely. I was hoping to wear some in my creeker, but it just does not feel right to me and cramps my toes. I just keep some tevas in my boat that I slip on over my neoprene socks when I get out of my kayaks. I know it is a little bit of a hassle to put them on every time I get out of the yak, but all the booties I checked out still had such a thin sole, you would feel all sharp items being walked over anyway.

Even when you are creeking and portaging? If I am going to play with the big boys I need shoes that can keep up!

I just got the Montrail Upper Ocoee and love them. Women specific design. They are just a touch too big for my playboat right now, but hope I can adjust the outfitting. Fit well in my Burn and with my drysuit though.

They fit a bit small, so go up a size. I have a weird foot... wear 10.5 in running/hiking shoes, but 8.5 in dress shoes. I bought a 9. They are nice and grippy on rocks, solid sole, good arch, narrow, extra padding on the outside of the heel and big toe (where the boat hits). With my playboating booties, I get a good callus on the outside of my heel after just a little while in my boat, but I think these will help. And they're on sale. I might get another pair as a backup b/c I like them so much and it looks like they are closeouts.

I use TEVA's in my boat, but I had to cut them to fit. I just sawed the heel off at an angle to fit in my boat. Just a thought!!

If you use the proper take-out you usually don't need to worry about sliding down steep gorges, falling rock, and tearing dry suits.
