Solite Boots 8mm Custom Pro Boot - 2021 Fire
You Asked. We Answered.
New England, Norway, Russia, The Great Lakes....
When the norm is ice on your wetsuit hood and wind-chills below zero, our 8mm Custom Fire delivers tropical warmth and barefoot feel.
How is this possible? The Fire starts with our new, patented round-toe Thermo-Form sole: 8mm thickness in the toes, heel, and underfoot, and 7mm thickness on the sides and top of foot. This seamless sole is heat-moldable for custom fit and sized slightly larger to accommodate our 1mm Neoprene Heat Booster socks, which are included in the box.
The neoprene upper on the Fire is 7mm on the lower zone and 5mm under the wetsuit leg, reducing bulk to improve ankle mobility. The O-Ring cuff thickness is reduced further to 4mm to make the Fire easy to get on and off.
Combined with the included 1mm Heat Booster Sock, the Fire offers 9mm of insulation on the toes/underfoot/heel and 8mm on the sides and top of the foot. Incredibly, the Fire weighs and feels similar to our competitors' 3mm boots, giving near barefoot feel and response in arctic waters.
Recommended Water Temps: 32-50F.
Sizing Tip: Order your regular shoe size or 1/2 size down. For example, if you are a size 10.5, order a 10. Women should order 1-1.5 sizes lower to convert from Men's sizing. So if you are a Women's 8, order a Men's 7. If you are a Women's 8.5, also order a Men's 7. NOTE: If your feet are exceptionally narrow or low volume, you may want to size down even more.
The Ultimate Cold-Water Boot Goes Next Level
Last season, our introduction of the 8mm Custom Fire revolutionized frigid-water warmth and performance with Solite's unmatched light-weight and renowned barefoot feel. The 2021 8mm Custom Fire goes next level with improved durability and our exclusive EZ-O cuff.
We cut no corners with the 8mm Custom Fire, including triple-sealed seams, our exclusive EZ-O Cuff, a Tatex-Print heel spine, and 1mm Neoprene Split-Toe Heat Booster socks IN THE BOX.
The 8mm Custom Fire is anchored by our patented Full Wrap arch strap, which locks your foot into the boot to insure zero delay between foot movement and board response. Combined with the precision fit of our custom heat-molding process, the 8mm Custom Fire provides barefoot feel and response for every possible foot shape: high or low arch, narrow or wide width, high or low volume.
Updates to the 2021 8mm Custom Fire include:
EZ-O Cuff for easier on/off while still providing a seamless, flush-resistant seal against the leg.
Double reinforced, extra-strength heel-loop for long-term durability.
Beefed up Full Wrap arch strap with all seams reinforced for long-term strength.
Recommended Water Temps: 32F+.
