I think I have made in mistake in thinking the Neil Pryde Evolution lace up boots were a credible copy of the Aigle.

Have changed laces and they are still difficult to pull on, and help is needed to get them off.   Any ideas?

Have only used them three times and hope the soles will wear in, but grip is poor with the walk through the wet changing room is very Torvil and Dean. Anyone with reassurance that they will get better?

P&B say they havent had other comments and Pryde just ignore any questions.

They are sadly exactly that - a very poor copy of the Aigle

Thanks Rich. At least others may see this and avoid wasting their money.

Think a non zip boot that is not Aigle will not suit, but I trust Gill and have a look.

People with size 11 feet that like Neil Pryde boots, please message me!

Heard bad things about these Aigle replicas. I have been using the Magic Marine Frixion and get along with them. They are expensive but seem to last well and you get what you pay for.

Never had a problem with decathlon boots or any of the sailing gear, use their camping gear too.

Gul boots bought today, easy to get on and grip is great. Have just bought my last bit of clothing online. I will buy locally and have chance to try first. And at a similar price to the big mail order sheds!

You have a local place still? That is good news. Where are you? And a name check for the shop?!
