OPTION WAKE BOOT DETAILS
MORE ABOUT THE OPTION
The Option boot is the perfect blend of high-end design influence and entry-level functionality and value. It’s a boot that can be shared amongst several riders (with similar foot sizes) thanks to the open toe design, while the gummy strap closure provides the comfort, performance and support of a full-function closed toe boot. The Option’s tri-zone closure allows riders to tighten the boots and customize the fit with ease.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE OPTION BOOTS
The combination of versatility and performance. Many open-toed boots are cheap and chincy, but the Option is built around our higher-end boot platform to ensure full performance and function.
OPEN TOE DESIGN
Open toe boots are a great option when looking to share gear between various riders. Some riders feet are bigger, and others are smaller, and the open toe is more accommodating for all...
DIRECT BASE SYSTEM
The direct base system puts the footbed DIRECTLY in contact with the surface of the board, giving riders a more connected feel and a more immediate board reaction when initiating toe and heel pressure.
3D MOLDED TONGUE
The 3d molded tongue is all about comfort and fit, meaning it fits the contours of your ankles the first time, eliminating the need to “break them in”.
Located in the heels of each slingshot boot liner, these built in J bars “embrace” the achilles with love and affection, increasing comfort and helping to lock the heel into position for the most secure fit.
TRI ZONE CLOSURE
Upper, middle, and lower zones can be customized using our signature gummy straps to deliver the EXACT fit riders are looking for. Some like them tight at the bottom, others like them tight at the top, then there are those who ride them all FULLY CRANKED. The Choice is yours...
SLINGSHOT’S SIGNATURE GUMMY STRAPS
Finally, a simple and effective solution to a problem that has afflicted wakeboarding boots since the very beginning. Slingshot’s “Gummy Straps” are a revolutionary closure system that utilizes super strong, high-tension Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) to cinch your boots tight. No more loosening over time, no more Velcro, no more cumbersome closure systems: Gummy Straps stretch when you fasten them, then squeeze your boots tight as you ride. Gummy Straps are easily interchangeable so you can customize your style.
