Zhik's New ZK Seaboot 900

14th November 2018
The Zhik ZK Seaboot 900 was designed for teams during the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 The Zhik ZK Seaboot 900 was designed for teams during the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18

The new ZK Seaboot 900 is a marine clothing product created as a direct result of Zhik’s partnership with team AkzoNobel and the Dongfeng Race Team, overall winners of the recent Volvo Ocean Race.

Designed for serious, long-distance offshore racers and professional sailors who wear their boots day in day out, the ZK Seaboot 900 offers more support, comfort and performance, whilst retaining its agile and responsive feel.

Following extensive hours of testing, on constantly moving and steeply heeling Volvo 65 decks, the arch, heel and ankle areas are reinforced internally and externally to keep the foot secure. The boots give excellent lateral support to reduce the risk of ankle injury from twists, turns or knocks whilst working the deck, yet without hindering your up and downward movements, ankle flexion and extension, as you move quickly.

Liz Wardley, boat captain on board Turn the Tide on Plastic commented during the Volvo Ocean Race, “We are heading South with a lot more confidence now thanks to you guys….I was stoked with Seaboots, and have been wearing them ever since so I don’t really want to change.”

The high grip, moulded deep rubber sole provides exceptional confidence across slippery decks and adds insulation and comfort underfoot. ZK Seaboot 900 is made with a combination of highly durable rubber and a cosy neoprene upper for warmth and longevity. All individually tested during production, the boots are 100% waterproof and sealed, with an integrated external gaiter to prevent water ingress in extreme conditions.

ZK Seaboot 900 will be available to retailers in March 2019 The RRP of the: ZK Seaboot 900 is £249.95, €279.95, US$299.99 and AUS$429.95
