*we can’t guarantee coverage on an individual foot, but from our testing, we estimate that stingray-resistant materials would cover 85% of a typical bootie

Care Instructions

  • Please do not walk on concrete with these booties—wait to get on the sand before putting them on
  • Hand-rinse booties; air dry
  • Avoid storing the booties in the sun

Testing Performed on Round Stingrays (Urobatis Halleri)

  • These booties were designed and tested with Round Stingrays. 
  • Round Stingrays are the most common source of stingray injury in Southern California, but they are not the only dangerous species of stingray. 
  • The exact level of protection provided against other species is unknown. 
  • Please see our Product Liability Disclaimer for more detail.

FAQ

+
Do you offer children's sizes?
Answer: Although we wish we could have children's size now, at this point, we're making adult sizes exclusively. When we do make our booties available in children sizes, we want to make sure we accommodate potential stings higher up the leg, and any other differences inherent to the smaller size and wearers, which may require a separate design. That said, it is definitely on our radar so we'll be working on it longer term!
+
Can I wear these booties with fins?
Answer: In total, the booties are about 8mm (or about .3 inches) thick. The neoprene in the booties also does compress when worn with a fin. As long as you have about a quarter of an inch space of slack between your feet and the fins, you should be good!
+
Do you ship internationally?
Answer: At this point, we only ship to the continental US. That being said, if you're interested in the booties and live in any of these areas, please let us know via the interest form!
