Fourth Element Pelagic 6.5mm Boots
These are the first pair of dive boots I have ever gotten excited about. Comfy even without the inner sole, re-enforced where the fins may rub - plus they look like something Batman would wear. So I bought a pair in 2016 and loved them boat diving in Fiji, but then really got the full benefits of this comfortable boot when shore diving in Tulamben Bali.
The first diving boots in the world to feature ergonomic footbed insoles, the new Pelagic boots from Fourth Element are set to redefine comfort in diving footwear.
The Pelagic boot is a lightweight comfortable warm boot. The addition of the footbed provides a stable chassis and greater comfort when finning and climbing ladders. It also makes them ideal for occasional shore diving.
Heavy Duty Zip and Stopper
A common problem with dive boots is having the zip slide down during a dive, letting water in and making your feet cold. The heavy duty zip and in particular zip-stopper on the Amphibian and Pelagic boots reduce the risk of this happening, keeping the top of the boot tight around your ankle.
The Fin-strap Retainer does exactly what is says, keeping the strap up on the back of your heel. This has been carefully researched and tested to work with most diving fins on the market today. The cut-away at the back of the heel minimises stress on the Achilles tendon during finning, ensuring greater comfort during longer dives.
The Amphibian and Pelagic Boots are the only boots on the market today designed to include an ergonomic footbed/insole. This provides heel support and impact protection, arch support and cushioning underfoot. The stiff chassis enhances stability and increases comfort when climbing a ladder or shore diving carrying full kit. The midsole provides additional cushioning underfoot from impact and uneven surfaces. This incorporates a heel cup for heel support, arch support and additional protection from sharp objects underfoot. Climbing ladders in full kit is easier and it is more comfortable to stand and walk around wearing these boots due to the rigidity and support of the insole. Additional cushioning directly below the heel provides added impact protection when walking carrying dive equipment.
Pelagic Hard Wearing Outsoles
The Pelagic's outsole gives great grip and comfort, whilst minimising weight. This makes it ideal for travelling and boat diving, but the addition of the ergonomic insole makes the Pelagic a versatile performer, more than capable of shore diving as well.
