Compete / Sailing shoe


Compete is a sailing shoe for active sailors. It comes in two parts, an breathable sailing shoe and a neoprene boot. On regattas where it need as low weigth as possible, one can still dress after weather. Sailors wants to wear lightweight and breathable shoes as long as possible due to comfort and mobility. And when the time comes to change to boots, it must usually happen quickly. With Compete one do not need to take off the shoe, but only drag the boot over and attach to the velcro on the shoe and the sailer have a waterproof and warm boot. Mobility, stability and comfort are important factors for a sailing shoe.
