What is it about Solite wetsuit boots
5 years of development and testing has lead to the ultimate wetsuit boot that delivers the very best performance, comfort and warmth of any boot on the market.
Solite wetsuit boots offer a unique and simple process that allows the wearer to mould the boots to fit straight out the box: ‘what could be easier!’
So why is this even important?
“Poor fitting boots = pain, cramp, poor circulation, pins and needles, and worse of all a crap session.“
If you wear boots when stand up paddleboarding or surfing then you know how important it is to feel comfortable and in control.
A regular wetsuit boot or shoe may not have any give in it so your foot can easily become cramped as it fights the neoprene and this leads to fatigue.
We haven't cut corners
- Heat-moldable with boiling water for the perfect custom fit.
- NEW softer-compound Thermo-Form sole for next-level comfort, warmth, dexterity, and durability.
- Internal split-toe locks your foot inside the boot for precise response.
- NEW super-tacky, non-marking vulcanized gum rubber sole pods for grip, protection, and flexibility.
- Waterproof/breathable Ventiprene upper with comfy flat-lock seams.
- Abrasion-resistant Supratex II outer lining and hydrophobic quick-dry inner lining.
The soles of your feet
The connection between board and feet, but not just any grip – it needs to be the right grip.
The natural rubber sole pods are made with a softer, tackier, more flexible compound for improved traction both on a board and on slippery rocks.
That said we’ve made sure your feet don’t get bound so the need to slip and move isn’t hindered when you need it the most.
Maximising comfort and warmth
Moulding the solite boots to fit
- Unpack the boots and first of all try them on without soaking them. Get a feel for them.
- Now take them off and go boil some water in a kettle.
- Note from this diagram the rough fill level of the boot.
- Put boots in a sink or bath and then fill them with the boiling water and leave for 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes, pour the hot water out and pour a little cold water in to the boot to take off the heat. Just for a few seconds.
- Test inside the boot with your hand and if ok, put the boot on carefully.
- Make sure your toe is inside the cavity and the heel is nested in the heel pocket.
- Walk around for a few minutes allowing the boots to cool down and set.
- If you need to you can go through the process again until they feel super comfortable, but aren’t bagging around the foot.
