Zhik's contemporary, casual styled ZKG amphibious watersports and boat shoes are making a popular return. Looking totally at home on the boardwalk, these technically proficient shoes come into their element in water and are designed entirely to be 'Made for Water'.

Using Zhik's unique high grip ZK sole technology the shoes give a limpet-like grip on wet decks, SUPs, boards or wing foilers which comes from the tread pattern and highly durable rubber forumla used in the soles.

At first glance, the classically styled uppers could pass as a timeless, highstreet shoe. Yet on closer inspection they are made with neoprene for comfort and stability combined with quick drying 3D air mesh panels that allow your feet to breathe and water to drain away quickly.

With reinforced toes and heels, these ultralight shoes are amazingly flexible for athletic movement afloat, yet have a stable structure with a supportive, comfortable inner sole. With toe and heel pull tabs for easy dressing, ZKG's have a quick lacing system that is covered by a lace stow, preventing snagging and enabling a constant pressure across the foot.

Available in Anthracite or Platinum, US sizes 6 to 13 (equivalent UK 5.5 to 12.5; Euro 39 to 48)
