ZKG Shoes by Zhik, A Revolutionary New Class of Marine Footwear

I always paddle with some sort of footwear and have experimented with many types. The best I’ve found is the new ZKG.

ZKG, a highly technical new line of water shoes by Australian sailing apparel company Zhik, is now available at Stand Up Paddle Flatwater, an online retailer of stand up paddling equipment.

Made of perforated neoprene, ZKG Water Shoes are lightweight and comfortable with just the right amount of cushioning, toe protection, flexibility, and traction.

ZKG Shoes are suitable for a wide range of water activities. What’s more, their classic sneaker design allows for seamless transitions from street to water and vice versa.

Stand Up Paddle Flatwater’s decision to carry the shoes was due to their growing popularity with stand up paddlers. “I’m really stoked on this shoe,” says Randall Barna, an avid stand up paddler and Pacific Northwest Regional Director of the World Paddle Asssociation.

Barna also happens to be a certified pedorthist who specializes in footwear to enhance sports performance. "I always paddle with some sort of footwear and have experimented with many types. The best I’ve found is the new ZKG. With stand up paddling, the power you generate, through the paddle and body, is delivered through the feet/board connection. Feet have an optimal skeletal alignment (foot posture) for strength. Footwear can help you achieve this. The ZKG has a shoe insert, just like athletic shoes, which will contour to your foot and give you comfort and better feel for balance and power. They also have great traction, look cool, and protect your feet.”

ZKG Water Shoes are now available at the Stand Up Paddle Flatwater website as well as Stand Up Paddle Bend, Stand Up Paddle Flatwater's flagship store.

Stand Up Paddle Flatwater is a full-service, family-owned online SUP shop dedicated to providing you with everything you need to have as much fun as possible with SUP. Whether you want to surf big waves, win races, get in shape, shoot rapids, just cruise, or do a little of everything, you can trust Stand Up Paddle Flatwater to help you pick equipment you’ll be stoked on. A flagship store, Stand Up Paddle Bend, is located in Bend, Oregon.
