    skinny ankle bootie

    Does anyone have really skinny ankles and found a winter bootie that doesn't fill up with water?

    Looking for recommendations...

    Are you rolling your wetsuit over the boot cuff? If you are, take the detachable velcro strap from an xcel glove for example and use that to tighten things up.

    I have a velcro ankle wrap on my o'neill mutants but it still lets water in...

    I have an ankle strap from a broken leash that I put on my left ankle in the winter that keeps the flushing to a minimum (I wear my leash on the right ankle, reg foot) Only when the water is COLD

    I bought quicksilver split toe liquid neoprene dipped 2mm booties and used them first time today. They r men's so I got XS. They were great, kept my feet warm, very little water got in. I wore them under my wetsuit legs. After two hours maybe a tablespoon of wAter was in. Pricey, $59 but worth it if they last...oh,and I have skinny ankles.

  8. they are supposed to get water in them, your body/feet heat warms the water, thus keeping your feet warm... thats why its called a wetsuit, not a dry suit

    Wrap your ankle and bootie with duct tape. . . but don't forget to shave your legs first.

    Exactly...bone dry WETsuit boots and gloves are a myth. Properly fit, they get a film of water inside but not enough to feel like your carrying around a pint. However it sounds like the OP is having a flushng issue which is not good.
    Xcel Drylock booties might be a good idea. They have a sort of gasket at the top which minimizes flushing.
