Recommended Water Temps: 45F+ 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. Solite 2.0 Simply Game-Changing. Again. We’ve changed the bootie-game again with our Solite 2.0 technology. The 5mm Custom 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 5mm Custom 2.0 is your answer. Check the tech:
How to Heat Mold Your Solite Boots
3D-Molded Natural Rubber Sole Like all of our new 2.0 Series boots, the 5mm 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 Our patented heat-moldable 2.0 Thermofoam sole has also been completely redesigned, including a more comfortable Micro-Split internal split toe. The Micro-Split is only 1cm long, providing round-toe warmth with split-toe response. The Thermo Foam Sole is 6mm thick in the toes/heels for extra protection and 5mm elsewhere.
Reinforced Stealth-Loop 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.
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 3mm 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.
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 Pros, 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.
Split-Toe Heat-Booster Socks in the Box The unsung hero of our Solite “System”, our Knit Split-Toe Heat-Booster Socks are included. Knit from a Nylon/Poly/Spandex blend, they stay warm and comfortable when wet. Benefits of the Heat Boosters are numerous:
- Easier on-off and reduces stress on seams.
- Increases comfort and warmth.
- Absorbs excess water from flushing to prevent puddling in the boots.
- Absorbs bacteria to reduce bootie-stink.
- Machine wash and dry for convenience.
