To add a little extra insulation to these booties and assist with putting them on and taking them off — you may want to consider a pair of WORN Frictionless Thermal socks.
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 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.
Pro-Level Performance in the Coldest Conditions
The 8mm Custom Fire has revolutionized frigid-water warmth and performance with Solite's unmatched light-weight and renowned barefoot feel. While regular neoprene cold-water boots have a spongy, sloppy feel underfoot, our heat-moldable Thermofoam Sole and secure 360-Wrap Strap gives you a direct connection to your board with zero delay in response. Perfect fit equals instant response and comfort, and the Round-Toe design insures all toes touch each other for maximum warmth. The Thermofoam Sole is 8mm thick in the toes/heels for extra protection and 7mm elsewhere.
Thermal Rebound Lining from Top to Bottom
The 2022 8mm Custom Fire gets even warmer with the addition of our Thermal Rebound internal lining and a matching Round-Toe 1mm Neoprene Heat Booster Sock, also with Thermal Rebound lining.
These socks are a critical component of our Solite "system", particularly in the frigid waters where the 8mm Custom Fires are used. Benefits of the 1mm Neoprene socks are numerous:
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.

As surfskate grows in popularity around the world and more surfers, snowboarders and skateboarders get into the sport, I often get asked ‘How do I choose the right surfskate?’ With a plethora of options available on the market, making a decision can be overwhelming to say the least. To help you narrow down your options, we are going to break down every aspect to consider when choosing your first surfskate.
It’s generally assumed that as a SUP enthusiast and instructor, my favourite season is summer. And while I do love a warm weather paddle, fall is actually number one on my list. The crowds die down as the water cools and the brilliant leaves add beauty to flat water paddle excursions. But the top reason I love autumn is that it marks the beginning of the SUP surf season. Yes, you read that right; SUP surfing is a thing!
