Editor's Choice: Wuzzos Corinthian Pro

Even before we opened the box we knew we were in for a maritime footwear treat – after all, how many shoeboxes do you see with their own porthole built into them?!

Inside the pleasant surprises keep on coming, with each shoe individually wrapped to ensure they reach their new owners in perfect condition.

There’s even a delightful leaflet detailing Wuzzos’ heritage and connections to the marine world – this is a brand which communicates; it wants to be your friend.

There’s no doubt in our minds that the Wuzzos Corinthian Pro takes the art of the ubiquitous deck shoe to another level.

And with a custom-designed, water dispersing anti-aquaplaning sole they’ve been designed to keep their owners on the level too.

In fact, everything about these shoes shouts purpose-built-for-boat.

As well as providing exceptional grip on wet surfaces, the sole is non-marking and UV-resistant.

The leather and mesh uppers provide excellent ventilation and drainage, and the metal eyelets are salt water resistant.

The padded insoles come in a shade of yellow which complements all three shoe colour choices – navy, brown and grey – and are extremely comfortable on the foot.

Inside and out, finishing touches have been applied using subtle but eye-catching detailing.

If all that wasn’t enough, the Wuzzos Corinthian Pro has another neat trick up its sleeve.

It’s called Wave-Shock, which refers to the forward-facing structural panels incorporated into the white outsole.

Designed to limit torsional twist and absorb impact, Wave-Shock is claimed to minimise energy transmitting through the core of the body to help prevent injuries to ankles, knees, hips, back and neck.

But the moment of truth with any pair of shoes comes when you slip them on for the first time, and here we score Wuzzos highly.

Like a glove from the off, we felt cossetted, comforted and thoroughly spoiled.

What’s more, we could sense the quality encasing our feet by a shoe which has obviously been built to last.

Price: £120 (inc. VAT)

Editor’s Choice: Zhik INS100 jacket

We're not quite sure how to pronounce the name of this recently-launched Australian jacket without appearing churlish, but what we do know is that the Zhik INS100 is a stylish piece of kit indeed.

The description offered by its makers reads, “the perfect technical lightweight cross-over jacket for life afloat and ashore”, leaving no doubt as to who this garment is aimed – us boaters.

They even promote it with the hashtag ‘Made for Water’. What we particularly like about the Zhik INS100 is that this is no in-yer-face product; it makes its own unique fashion statement quietly, without really trying.

Or could it be that the converse is true – it succeeds precisely because it conceals its street-style, trend-setting light beneath a bushel so well?

The jacket’s clean lines, with no frills and modest branding, might make the casual observer think there’s nothing special going on here.

But take a closer look and you’ll find a host of features to commend it. For example, there’s its construction. The Zhik INS100 is made of Vecta, a fully waterproof, two layer hydrophobic breathable fabric which promises comfort whatever the weather decides to throw at us.

A soft mesh lining maximises air flow, adding further to the comfort, and when the going gets really tough an additional coat of DWR – Durable Water Repellent – is there to turn the jacket into a duck’s back; water just runs off of it.

All seams are fully taped with critical joints further reinforced for durability and personal effects are kept stay safe and dry inside the two external zipped side pockets and a discreet chest pocket.

As a brand, Zhik’s claim to the water runs deep – since its formation in 2003, its range of wetsuits and dinghy gear have become a popular choice among sailors around the globe.

The firm was the Technical Clothing Partner for two teams in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 and the Official Technical Clothing Supplier to Alex Thomson Racing for the 2020 Vendee Globe Campaign. And with a pedigree like that, the Zhik INS100 surely has to be worth a look.

Price: £129.95 (inc. VAT)
