The Poseidon "One Shoe" bootie is a step-in shoe with a zipper closure in the back and elastic bungee cord laces to keep the shoe slim around the foot. The high durability rubber sole makes boarding ladders and shore entries a snap. The Neoprene® fabric and rubber sole easily tolerate harsh marine environments. May be used as a bootie for diving with open heeled fins or simply worn as a shoe for everyday use. Laces do not need to be tied. Each pair includes a Poseidon mesh bag that has multiple uses.
Please be aware these shoes run narrow, if you have a wider foot please order the next size larger. Also these also have thinner style soles, if you are looking for thicker "rock" style booties these might not meet your needs.
I wore out endless pairs of slip on boots-foot wear & I needed a new better fitting pair so I tried the DGX Poseidons. Great fit, fair to mid range price, very comfortable & firm yet flexible unlike a stiffer rock boot and the rear high quality zipper is great.
Love these!...but please make with a sturdier zipper

This is my third pair of Poseidon One Shoes. They look really cool and are very comfortable BUT the reason this is my third pair is because the zippers failed on my prior shoes. The soles tend to wear down quickly also, hence 4 stars and not 5.
Ok, I've seen someone wear things a bit back in Hawaii and i have wanted a pair since. Standard booties just don't cut it when your climbing in small boats with very small metal tubes making up the dive ladder. Digs into my feet and hurt like heck. Heavier soled dive boots solve that problem but are harder to get a good fit and tend to start to rub blisters on my toes unless I wear socks. So wanted something with fits like a sneaker and protects your feet like a sneaker. These seem to fit the bill. Like other have said, buy up a size. Plan on testing them on a dive trip in 3 weeks, but they really feel good wearing them around the house.
I am a Dive Pro and do many dives a day. I understand that they are not designed for that kind of use. However, I do believe that they should have lasted longer than 3 months before beginning to fall apart. At 5 months the soles have been rubbed smooth and a few areas and even split in places as well. I wish they had held up better. Looks like it is back to Converse High Tops for me...
Not the most sturdy gear on the market, the heels cracked on both boots after just over thirty dives. The soles are thin, so not very practical for rocky entries and the compound used wears down quite quickly. But treat them as tropical booties and you'll be fine.Unbeatable for comfort and ease of donning for warm water dives.
Divers experiencing a slight swelling in hands and feet is not unusual. Called edema, mild swelling in your hands or feet is not a typical symptom of decompression sickness (DCS) and would rarely occur alone. If it were related to DCS, it would more likely occur with pain, numbness or change in skin sensation. Diving related causes are more likely a constrictive wrist or ankle cuff on a wetsuit or dry suit. The depth compensating elastic wrist bands or bungee cords popular with technical dive computers is another common cause. If you are sizing new boots or gloves, keep in mind that a snug fit on dry land might become really uncomfortably tight when gearing up for diving.
