      How's That Feel?

      How's That Feel?

      Surfing always comes down to feel.  As surfers we go by how things feel at least as much as how they look.   Because in surfing once you have something that feels just right you come to rely on that as the benchmark for performance. 

      Think about it.  It's true of boards, it's even true of wetsuits to some degree. But it's definitely true of wetsuit boots. They are literally the connection between you and your board. Some people are very picky, they will tell you they can't surf in booties. Some will tell you that they can't surf without booties. Some hate them some love them. That's why we at Solite spend so much time working on our unique materials, fit and construction.   Our goal was always a game changing boot that could improve everyone's surfing performance.   And Solites do!  Whether you are dropping in the bowl at Mavericks, or a beginner trying to get to your feet somewhere in Virginia Beach, you benefit from a lighter, better-fitting boot.  Especially one that feels more like barefoot on your board.  Like a membrane around your foot that moves like part of your foot. On top of that being 50% lighter helps everyone get to their feet faster and that's huge whether you are 7 or 70.


       The big bonus is that they're so durable. They outlast regular boots by 2-3 X.

      Partially because of the revolutionary thermoform material and partially because there are no seams to leak in the lower half of the boot. Solites provide superior performance that outlasts other boots.  As an added bonus, if your feet are still growing you can stretch them again by heat molding them to keep that custom fit going one extra season.

       Maybe that's why so many people are switching to Solite Boots. This was a breakout year and we have been amazed by our success.  When famous surfers sponsored by other wetsuit companies started secretly wearing our boots we knew we were on to something. We don't pay anyone to use our product. They do it because they believe.  From air kids in So Cal to the ice slab chargers in Northern Canada the word is out. These are the best boots you can buy. Period!

       The bad news is they're selling out fast.  So if you want to be sure to get your size get them now.  You can get them custom fitted by an expert retailer at any one of our custom hotbed centers around the US, Europe, and Canada.  Like Peter Mell at Freeline in Santa Cruz pictured here. Not only does he sell them, he uses them almost daily. If you're not near one of our retailers  go to  where there are easy to follow do-it-yourself sizing and molding instructions and live chat if you need help.



      The Beaches are going to Reopen!

      The Beaches are going to Reopen!
      There are multiple petitions being circulated now to reopen beaches that are still closed. You can find many of them here.  This is a positive exercise of your rights as an American. But, let’s be sure we bring our “A Game” to the table when beaches are open.

      Solite Boots; Punta Galea

      Warms the heart to see New York's Cliff Skudin crushing it in Spain on the white Solite prototypes he borrowed from his brother Will. Some amazing shots of Cliff emerging from his waves at Nazare and the Punta Galea Challenge. 

      All Hail the Heat Booster Sock

      All Hail the Heat Booster Sock

      As the water temps drop in the Northern Hemisphere, we'd like to put the spotlight on the numerous benefits of our Heat Booster split-toe socks. By design, Solite Boots don't have any plush lining material inside the lower portion (the heat-moldable portion) of the boot. While such plush lining ads a layer of warmth and comfort in regular wetsuit booties, it is also the primary reason why regular booties stink to high-heaven after a few uses, and also why they take forever to dry. This lining material is a hot-bed for bacteria from your feet to form and hang out. Since it is very difficult for fresh air to circulate inside booties, the moistness in the lining material breeds bacteria formation and the cycle of stink is very difficult to break.

      Solite Boots' sole is molded from an anti-microbial thermo-foam that dries quickly and therefore makes it difficult for bacteria to form inside the boot. Many surfers love the feel of foot directly against this foam as it gives the most direct, barefoot-like response from foot to board. However, for those who miss the cushiness or extra warmth provided by lining materials, we developed the Heat Booster Split Toe Sock. The benefits of this sock are substantial:

      1. The polyester/nylon/spandex material ads a layer of insulation for a few extra degrees of warmth.
      2. The fibers of this material blend don't absorb water and dry quickly.
      3. They can be machine washed/dried to eliminate bacteria formation immediately and give you fresh, clean socks for your next session.
      4. The low-friction surface makes putting on your wetsuit and boots much easier.
      5. The socks work great for the Solite Heat Molding process, providing a little breathing room for your toes inside the boot.
      6. You can use Heat Booster socks in ANY booties, split toe or round.
      7. You can also use Heat Booster socks for any athletic activity: running, biking, ninja moves, driving to the beach. They double as excellent athletic socks.

      Heat Booster socks come FREE with all 3mm and 6mm Custom Pro boots and are also sold separately for $9.95. They are available in two sizes, Small (US 6-9) and Large (US 10-13). Order them here: Heat Booster Socks.
