Sure what the hell wear a 4/3 all winter, whatever, but split toe boots are silly! Ninja!LOL. And who are you kidding with 3mils? Talk about being taken on a gimmick. They don't make you surf better. And they split your toe away form all the warmth of the foot. 7mil O'neil Heat round toe. You can't feel a difference between a 3, 5 or 7 while surfing and why wouldn't you just wear 7mil during the winter? They can't be beat, the only pair you need all year, get a new pair when the temp goes back under 50 the following year. New pair every year. You can surf with your hands cold and your-ass half frozen off or maybe even with some brain freeze. But you can't surf with the "Club Foot".
Boots, The most important part of the whole setup. 3mils!
I have other thicker booties around 7mm but i switch to my 3mm split toe all the time just because they feel like im wearing nothing..i can feel the deck pad and it flexes with my foot unlike some of the stiff booties ive worn before. I mean whats the point of being out there being warm when you cant perform the way you want to
I like my 3mm boots, i change over to them as soon as the water is warm enough.... call my crazy but having that extra bit of sensitivity in my feet makes the whole wetsuit setup that much more bearable... + they are easier to slip on than my thick boots.
