Don't worry about it....Just wait until the dumb fuckers that buy them try and undo the laces in February!

I am just waiting for them to bring out the "business lunch" wetsuit and "brogue" version- for those who are at work but need that dinner time surf. DONT BOTHER getting changed - just buy our wetsuit that looks like a M&S suit and brogues- out of the water and straight into the meeting NO ONE WILL NOTICE!

They look really cool if you wear them with your boardies over your wetsuit. Or with your shortie this summer......

I laughed my head off when I saw in the seaweed warehouse hangers with little fan attached (Hangair), "Who the feck is going to buy those Dan ?" I scoffed, he smiled.They sold a sh?t load......I laughed my head off when I saw in the Seaweed warehouse a changing tent for the shy surfers out there, " who the feck is going to buy those Dan ?" I scoffed, they've sold a sh?t load.......These boots- they'll sell a sh?t load...All the gear, no idea amongst us !!!!

Be really good for fishing off rocks actually - snug enough for easy scrambling on cliffs and boulders, and fine for wading through rock pools etc. Might wait until they are on sale though!

Something like these or these may be better (or any river shoes for that matter) as they are specifically designed for keeping your feet warm while scrambling around over wet rocks / river banks so will almost certainly have a better sole for the job.

These would be better still but they cost a bloody fortune.

Stealth rubber on the 5.10s really is the shit though.
