    • Started leaking

      21/10/2016
      David (United Kingdom)
      Used for
      Very comfortable, but after 2 seasons of once-weekly use, both boots now leak and because they're just over 2 years old the local Decathlon weren't interested it taking them back even for QA checks. There seem to be several reports of these leaking which defeats their primary purpose, so don't but if you're looking for a reliably waterproof boot.
      Response of the brand
      Hello,

      Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear about your recent experience with our product and customer service in your local store.
      Yes, we are facing quality issue with some of these boots. Please could you contact me directly on my email to agreed full refund or exchange and to arrange return of this defected pair to my office for further investigation.
      Apologies once again.

      Kind regards,

    • Comfortable but leak

      Great boot and comfortable perfect when on the boat.

      Very disappointed to find when recovering (and launching) boat at slipway always get wet feet, not really any point in having them.

      Response of the brand
      Dear Mr R Leigh,Thank you for your feedback about our product. We are really sorry to hear that these boots had a defect and were not waterproof at all. This model is fitted with waterproof, breathable membrane and shouldn't leak.
      Because it is another negative review with similar issue I will contact product manager and request further investigation. All products are tested in laboratories and by our technical partners and these boots passed the validation process.   
      Please return your defected boots to your closest store or via online process for full refund or exchange. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.Kind regards,

      Very pleased with these boots. Just completed 2000+ mile sailing trip around Britain and they were excellent. Warm dry comfy and with great grip what more do you want at a good price?
    • Great boot but ...

      I purchased these boots last year and have been so pleased with them. I followed advice and purchased half a size bigger. They have been very comfy but sadly this year, when going ashore by dingy to a beach I found that both boots leaked and as we were way up north they took several days to dry out again. Really sad because I thought I'd finally found a really good waterproof, warm and comfy sea boot. I will still wear them on deck but must think twice about using them for beach landings.
      Very comfortable and warm.
      Both boots leaked when gonig ashore onto a beach.
    • Review update after a season

      Paul (United Kingdom)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Loved these boots initially. By the end of first season they where leaking equally on both feet and also they bleed dye when left to dry, marking decking. Okay if you are not going to get them wet - ironically. Shame....very comfy, but will have to drop for a branded more expensive pair.
      Comfy
