Hl deck Grip pro­file

Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST - www.hen­ril­loyd.com

The ra­zor-cut rub­ber sole has plenty of grooves, cre­at­ing a par­tic­u­larly grippy shoe, although a lit­tle heav­ier than oth­ers on test. This de­sign was joint top in the dry grip test and joint first in wet/dry av­er­age. The black ma­te­rial on the up­per is rub­berised and gives good pro­tec­tion around the toe­box, but doesn’t al­low the foot to breathe – with­out get­ting the shoes wet they were left with a salt stain from sweat in the toe. De­spite drainage holes, wa­ter can only re­ally es­cape through the mesh ma­te­rial.

The Deck Grip Pro­file of­fers good sup­port but re­tains the flat sole of typ­i­cal boat shoes
