Best, Slingshot, North, Cabrina, Naish and sometimes Switch. Then 50 other brands. Not dogging the other 50 brands. It's just a r...

Re: Duotone

Not literally anyone leaving. But a name, branding, marketing change. Throwing away an established and known name. Brand cachet is huge.

Re: Duotone

50/50 chance 'Duotone' survives the name change. No Shannon at Best? No Lou at Wainman? How'd that work out for them? Would be like if Pete or Robbie left.

Re: Sewing line loops...

Re: Need kevlar booties

Good to know someone makes something. Those will be the next ones I get. I'd hate to walk much on coral with standard soled "reef booties". What a joke and misleading name. Better than barefoot? Sure as long as the thin, soft rubber sole doesn't get sliced open.
