Astral Hiyak Boots
A favourite with serious kayakers, the Hiyak is Astral's vision of the ultimate high cuff river boot. A low profile sole ensures you can still fit comfortably into low volume boats, yet offers sufficient support when portaging and scouting rapids. Available in a wide range of sizes and we recommend going up a little from your standard footwear.
The Hiyak offers ground-conforming stability, foot protection and insulation without neoprene. The result is a lighter, more durable, fast drying water-boot with phenomenal gripping powers.
