Why Solite Boots?

Life-long cold-water surfers Jamie Meiselman and Tyler Callaway used Meiselman career in the snowboarding industry and knowledge of heat molding to create Solite boots. They are the world's first and only custom, heat-moldable watersports footwear. Custom fitting can be done in your kitchen with nothing more than a kettle of boiling water. 

Whether you surf, paddle board, windsurf, wake or kite board  these boots will give you a 'barefoot' feeling while doing your water sport. They will give you high performance with greater heel hold and better anatomical shaping than any other boot. Heat-molding allows you to be shaped to accommodate problem areas just the same as if you have a custom ski or snow board boot. 

Key Features:

  • Heat-moldable with boiling water for the perfect custom fit.
  • NEW softer-compound thermo-foam sole for next-level comfort, warmth, dexterity, and durability.
  • Internal split-toe locks your foot inside the boot for precise response.
  • NEW super-tacky and flexible 1mm vulcanized rubber sole pods for barefoot board feel, grip, and abrasion resistance.
  • 3mm neoprene upper with quad-sealed seams (glue, blind-stitch, stretch tape inside, liquid weld outside).
  • NEW full-wrap ankle strap co-molded into the sole improves durability.
  • NEW Tatex-coated hook strap improves durability and holding power.
  • Tatex heel spine and laminated heel-pull for durability and easy on.
  • High pile quick-dry lining retains heat and feels comfy.
  • Double-lined 3mm O-ring cuff seal provides a durable, seamless barrier against flushing with lower bulk.
  • Includes a pair of knit Solite Heat Booster socks for added warmth, comfort, and easy on/off.

    How does the heat molding work?

    To heat-mold your Solite boots, watch the video below and follow the instructions carefully. Do not use any other methods of heat molding except boiling water. Use of ovens, microwaves, heat guns, etc. will void your warranty.

    Heat Molding Step-By-Step

    1. Fill a tea kettle with water and heat to a boil.
    2. While water is heating, roll down the cuffs of your wetsuit boots and place them in the sink.
    3. If you have Solite heat booster socks, put them on your feet.
    4. Once the water is boiling, pour it into your boots, filling each to the seam where the neoprene upper is attached to the sole. Wait 5 minutes for the boiling water to soften the sole material.
    5. After 5 minutes, carefully pour the hot water out of the boots, and quickly rinse out the inside of the boots with cold water to lower the surface temperature and prevent burning your feet.
    6. Put each boot on your feet. Make sure your big-toe sits comfortably in the toe cavity and your heel is flush in the heel pocket.
    7. Secure ankle straps if your boots have them.
    8. Sit in a chair with the boots on and wait 5-10 minutes as the boots cool down and form to your feet.
    9. Once the wetsuit boots have cooled to room temperature, the molding process is complete.
    10. If you are unhappy with the fit, you can re-mold the boots following the same steps.
