There are times when you simply don’t need heavy-duty dive-boots. If you’re diving in water warm enough just for swimwear, dive-skins or Nature’s wetsuit, dive-boots, which are designed to be tucked under ankle-cuffs, can scoop water, causing drag and collecting sand.
They can also take a long time to dry and are fairly weighty to transport. Sometimes, all you really need are simple beach shoes.
Scubapro’s slip-on Go Sock is aimed at divers and snorkellers using open-back fins. The moccasins have a moulded rubber sole with non-slip ribbing, and the uppers are double-lined 3mm neoprene.
Edging around the ankle keeps them firmly on your foot and excludes sand.
