My reef boots have finally given up on me and ‘parted’ company.

I'd like to get a sturdy comfortable pair of rock hoppers. Can anyone recommend some quality ones to look at.


I have seen some in a couple of camping/fishing stores but they seem quite flimsy for the asking price.

Paid $29 on Saturday for a pair for dive booties at Scuba Discount Supplies.

Just dive boots though - but with good grip sole.

Didn't know those existed Terry - much better option.  Staino spikes would be better.

Must be a hard inner sole for the spike base not to push back into your feet.  Will have to source a pair myself.

Hi Ya,

My youngest brother on the east coast has a pair of boots the same or very similar to the Mirage Rock Hoppers.  I have seen him running on black rock without any fear of slipping.  I was impressed by them as the same black rock was a slippery as ice under my feet.
