   -  "It was really great to meet you and discover your GEM of a shoe.  You’ll be happy to know it became my footwear of choice during the remainder of the conference/expo and I even wore them while traveling to Hawaii (Passed through TSA with flying colors!). They’ve been especially helpful in bringing down the swelling in my left foot.  I’ll be testing them out on the beaches, hiking trails out here later this week and answering the questions of many curious onlookers."

   -  "ZEMgear (provides) the favorite footwear for training myself and my clients.  Barefoot is Best!"

   -  "I use Barefoot technology in training all of my clients.  I've been doing so for the last 10 years.  I was never able to find the right footwear until this past year when I was introduced to ZEMbOOties.  Now I use them myself and recommend them to my clients.  They are a great product for barefoot training: they are light-weight, they are comfortable, they provide stability and traction.  There is nothing else in the market thats compares with ZEM."

Paige Davis
AVP Pro-Tour Player
Hermosa Beach, CA
    -  "I am an AVP Beach Volleyball player on the AVP pro-tour for the last 3 and a half years.  As a volleyball player I've really enjoyed ZEMbooties so far for working out in the sand, to protect my feet from hot sand and even when it's chilly out here.  I now play and train in ZEMbOOties for most of my conditioning training, indoor or on the beach."

Laura Downing
Professional Yoga Instructor
DaKini Yoga
    -  "I have been a yoga intructor for 7 years.  Last year I had the good fortune of teaching classes at BeachFest in the Turks & Caicos.  My students and I practiced outside near the turquoise Caribbean waters.  Although the setting was georgeous, I encountered several elements that I normally don't have to deal with such as hot sand and old, weathered wood.  ZEMbOOties provided ideal traction to be able to practice yoga anywhere!  I could use them with or without a yoga mat and know that my feet would be protected wherever I went.  They are lightweight and extremely comfortable.  ZEMbOOties are fantastic!"

   -  "I took out ZEMbOOties yesterday for a windsurfing ride and I was very pleased with them.  They worked well in the foot straps, got a bunch of extra grip out of them, they wont mess up my feet and they look cool!"

Torrence, CA
   -  "Being in the Turks & Caicos Islands in November for 2 weeks running my Beachfest event was interesting because ZEMbOoties were very poplular.  We had over 500 people here and they were using them for various sports, beach sports, I was coaching and playing in them and it was very easy to use them.  I walked around the resort and never had to take them off so it was nice to see the positive reaction of people from all over the world with the introduction of ZEMbOOties."

David Knorr
Miami, Fl
   -  "The product quality is very good and the style is unique.  I was wearing the ZEMs on the Key yesterday afternoon and they once again created a lot of interest.  I was over at the Key cycling next to Stefano's Liquor and then to Bristol's Camera trying to hurry and was forced to have conversations three times with interested parties regarding the black and silver pair!  There is a major appeal for the product indeed!"

Holly McPeak
Three-time U.S. Beach Volleyball Olympian
   -  "I am not one to wear sand socks very often because they are hard to move in but these new ZEMgear sand socks (ZEMbOOties) with the split toe are the most comfortable (type of) sand socks that I have tried and they are easier to move in the sand!"
