Comments about Xcel Thermobamboo 6.5 mm Boots:
Although I generally wear size 12 shoes, these boots in size 12 were too big. So I sold them to a friend who likes them. When initially trying them on I noticed that the inside, including the stitching, is very smooth and unlikely to cause blisters. Due to the possibility of blisters from long surface swims in particular I would recommend always ordering 1/2 size smaller than your shoe size. So, for example, if you wear 11 1/2 shoes order size 11 booties for a snug fit that will reduce the likelihood of blisters. The zipper is smooth as well, or works smoothly, and when fully closed does not protrude out as widely as some of the competition. This means less wear on your wetsuit and reduced possibility of water leaking into your wetsuit.
