Wear waterproof socks, because the zippers definitely leak. Bought them to extend the kayak season but literally got cold (and wet) feet. Found them useful for rocky shores and parking lots in summer when wet feet are no problem, but next kayak boots will have no zippers to let cold water in.

First, I bought a 7mm Camaro dive suit from STP and I love it. True quality, great fit using the sizing chart, and of course a great price.
I expected the Camaro dive boots to be comparable to the suit. Quality seems to be there-price is great-but the fit-yikes "honey who shrunk the kids!" Using the sizing chart and reading all of the reviews I thought a size 43 for my pancakes would be right. When I took the boots out of the box I had to laugh. They were kiddee size. So I exchanged them for a size 44-and perfect fit. I think quality control in China where the boots are made must have slipped up on the 43s.
I would say the boots look great and seem well made. I will be diving in them in a few weeks so look for an update.

Water got through my wetsuit before water got into these. LISTEN SURFERS... I wish someone had told me this before I ordered, my Oneil surf booties are size ten (which fit great), based on another review that said these run large, I ordered a 9.5(42). Still too big. I then ordered a 9(41), those fit. These are super warm. I've surf and free dive with them but order a full size smaller!

I bought these to use while kick boat fishing high serria lakes. My first use was at Big Virginia and it was in the mid-twenties. I wear them over waders which have 3mm booties attached. I ordered a size larger but could have got away with only 1/2 size larger. I used lighter socks than I normally do. They were easy to put on and take off and VERY warm; I was the only one in my group that didn't have to get out of water to warm my feet! Did not have issues with zippers.

This looks like a quality boot. However the sizing is way off. I wear a W(7) so ordered European (34) as per the chart for this item. Couldn't even get my foot into it! Hope the next size up works better.
