NRS Cross-4 Neoprene Wetshoe

With their well thought out design and adjustability, they are comfortable, easy to get on and off and have good traction.


The soles are very thick and protective when going over shells and even over sharpest rocks, but aren’t so thick that you can’t use toes for balance. The boots are high enough to keep out water in most cases.

A velcro wrap at the top prevents small debris from entering the foot area. Boots are small and lightweight enough to take along on trips.

While not fully waterproof, the water entry is minimal even when the zipper is partially submerged (with gusset behind), and you can zip your wetsuit ankle over the booties, which helps.

Excellent in cold conditions. The insulation is good enough to keep feet from freezing in water. They have a nice snug fit and so far your feet feel really warm inside. They keep your feet dry for longer than you think walking in shallow water. Even when your feet get wet they stay warm!

Stable And Secure

They are simple, without a lot of straps to get caught on your foot pegs. They stay in place with the handy Velcro strap across the top of the foot. The strap locks the boot on your foot across the instep, keeping it on when you are pulling your foot back out of the mud. You will not jam your toes into the front as you slide downhill!

When you paddle solid traction and a secure fit are a must, so even if the unexpected swim occurs they won't get left behind.

Nice low profile for kayak cockpits, perfect for getting in and out of the kayak and great boots for paddling and portage.


The NRS Cross 4 waterboots come in whole, unisex sizes. These are very well-designed and they are comfortable without compressing your feet. The slim, rounded sole design eliminates uncomfortable edges.

Comfortable enough to wear all day in and out of the water. The soles provide support and great traction. They go on easy, stay on snugly.

Enjoy their perfect fit and great feel on your feet!

The Cross-4 wet-shoe, built with 4-mm neoprene upper provides warm insulation and extra padding for reliable insulation. They feature a titanium neoprene adhesive for increased warmth.
