For those of you looking for a pair of stout booties for paddling, the PAYETTE is finally here. After a season of testing last year they are in production and in stores near you already. The Payette can be found at the following retail locations:

Denver - Confluence Kayaks & Telemark
Buena Vista - CKS
Durango - Four Corners River Sports
Taos - Taos Mountain Outfitters
Jackson Hole - Rendezvous River Sports

A big thanks to those of you who helped with the testing and development of this new bootie - get in touch with me.

Get 'em before they're gone.....

follow the lil link

Christine -

It looks strikingly similar to the product image you will find if you follow the link above. HERE it is again just for you though :wink:

They are made on a unisex last, sizes 7 - 14 and you shouldn't have any problem fitting them into a creekboat.

Here's a picture of an early prototype we were testing last Spring. We went to great lengths to test every imaginable aspect of a booties' uses...including proper drainage of beer. :cool:

Hey, Christine. How was CA? Jace said you were hit by a falling rock? I hope your arm is okay.

I picked up a pair of the booties on Saturday...they were a bit bulky for my playboat but they'll work like a charm in the creeker or I3. I could have made them work in the playboat but I was going to be in my boat for 3 hours and didn't want to take the chance. I think you'll like them--although I don't think they come in pink :)

Cheers,

Craig

It looks like you guys gave a nod to the excellent, extinct tokatees and improved on them. They look nice.

I have not yet found something that feels comfortable in the boat and is super secure on land.

Currently I am wearing Gamma Pros, in part due to a friends HUGE recommendation. I hate these things. They simply don't work for me. Does anyone want them? Used one time, great condition.

I just ordered a pair of Payettes from CKS. They should be here tomorrow, I hope they are as sweet as they look.

Freaking random! Ya a soccer ball size (or bigger) rock hit me from about 300 ft above when we were climbing out of a canyon on the N. F. of the Feather. My arm will be ok, I got it X-rayed today and nothing is broken, just badly brused. I will be good to go soon, I hope.

I did learn that I need better booties for climbing and portaging...the climb scared me a lot.

I will be checking out the booties this week.

I just went over to CKS and got a pair. The old nikes were duct taped together..

They fit true to a bit big on size I am a 12.5 to 13 and the 12's fit me well. Overall the best lookin boatin shoe I have seen in awhile..

I have not got them in the boat yet but walking around the house they are nice and let me tell ya these guys are not comming off your feet!

I have found they fit true to size with a tiny bit of extra room, which is great if you occasionally wear a drysuit or socks.
