Booties, Wetties !

Postby jonysan » Fri Dec 22, 2017 7:35 pm

A question that has been bothering me, not a lot, but occasionally, and at this festive season, I thought to ask the happy folk on this forum.
If you went into a "Kitesurf Shop" to buy neoprene items to wear on your feet, do you ask the assistant, "do you have any kitesurf Booties in my size please" or "do you have any kitesurf Boots in my size please" ?

Same goes for "Wettie" ??

'Wet shoes' for below the ankle footwear and 'wet boots' for above the ankle.

+1 neoprene Boots, wet Boots, and a Wetsuit. if you ask for Booties, you might ask for a Wettie. where will it end ? "I'd like a 9m Kitey Please ".

Merry Christmas
