Recommended Water Temps: 32F+
Sizing Tip: Order your regular shoe size or 1/2 size down. For example, if you are a size 10.5, order a 10. If you are a size 10, also order a size 10. NOTE: If your feet are exceptionally narrow or low volume, you may want to size down even more.
Simply Game-Changing. Again.
For Winter 2023, our 8mm Custom gets the Solite 2.0 sole upgrade, changing the game again for barefoot feel, performance, warmth, and durability in the most frigid conditions. The 8mm Custom 2.0 integrates our 2.0 Sole in the cleanest, simplest package that essentially disappears on your feet. If you want the world's lightest, barely-there boot, the 8mm Custom 2.0 is your answer. Check the tech:
3D-Molded Natural Rubber Sole
Like all of our new 2.0 Series boots, the 8mm Custom 2.0 features a 3D-molded 1mm natural rubber sole, wrapping up the toes and heel for increased durability and protection against rocks, urchins, and reef. The one-piece sole design leaves no exposed gaps between sole pods, insuring extra protection and durability.
Custom-Fit 2.0 Thermofoam Sole with Round Toe Design
Our patented heat-moldable 2.0 Thermofoam sole has also been completely redesigned including a Round Toe design for max warmth. The Thermo Foam Sole is 8mm thick in the toes/heels for extra protection and 7mm elsewhere.
Upgraded Neoprene Lining with Tatex Flex-Spine
Updates to the Custom 2.0 aren't limited to the sole. We've also upgraded the outer lining material to the same one we use on the Custom Pro/Fire, improving durability and minimizing water absorption. Further fortifying the exterior is our exclusive Tatex Flex Spine. The Flex Spine stiffens the back of the boot, acting as a shoe-horn for easy entry and also providing a sticky surface to grab your wetsuit leg and prevent flushing. The inside is lined with a plush quick-dry lining material for max airflow, improving warmth and comfort.
EZ-O Cuff with Overkill Seams
Our EZ-O Cuff design provides a seamless barrier against flushing with a larger panel than other o-ring seals, providing much easier on-off and reducing stress on the seams. To reduce bulk under the wetsuit leg and allow for easier on-off, the EZ-O panel is reduced to 5mm thickness. Since booties take serious abuse, we cut no corners on our neoprene seam construction. Our Overkill neoprene seams are triple-glued, blind-stitched, then sealed on the exterior with liquid seam seal for maximum durability and longevity.
To ease on/off, we've integrated our low-profile Stealth-Loop in the heel. The Stealth Loop is laminated between the neoprene and our co-molded rubber/textile heel reinforcement patch, providing incredible durability and pull-strength. The Stealth Loop is also Tatex-coated for extra strength and zero-water absorption.
1mm Neoprene Round-Toe Heat-Booster Socks in the Box
The 8mm Customs include a pair of our 1mm Neoprene Round-Toe Heat-Booster Socks in the box. These socks are a critical component of our Solite "system", particularly in the frigid waters where the 8mm Customs are used. Benefits of the 1mm Neoprene socks are numerous:
- Add 5-10F warmth to the boots for longer sessions in frigid conditions.
- Increase comfort with a soft, plush barrier between the foot and the Thermofoam sole.
- Make the boots easy on/off with a low-friction outer surface.
- Keep boots smelling fresh since the socks can be easily washed/dried separately.
