I had a great pair of Magic Marine boots that were vert soft and supple, but still lasted ages. They were lime socks with a sole (no zip or laces). I now have a pair of Zhik boots, they seem well made but they are very narrow and no where near as comfy as my old boots.

I love my hard soled Gill boots, they would be miles to clunky for trapezing, but for a general purpose hiking boot i find them fantastic.  I have been close to buyng Agile laceups loads of times but couldnt justify the cost, however they seem to last twice as long as normal boots, so would probably offer decent value over time.

If you don't have sharp gravel then surfing split-toe boots are way, way, better than any of the stuff on offer as 'dinghy' boots.  If you do have sharp gravel, then Gill.  Aigle are good, but bl**dy expensive, you still need to wear something inside them in the winter or you'll freeze and give nowhere near the 'feel' of the split toes anyhow, which can be purhcased in 3mm and 5mm versions.
