Footwear

An old pair of trainers Old trainers are ideal for coasteering as they are usually snug fitting – won’t fall off in the water. Have a robust sole, this will stop you bashing your toes on rocks and ensure comfort walking over gravel or sharp uneven ground. A running style shoe is preferable to daps, as they have more tread, which can mean more grip on the barnacle covered rocks.
