This year, Slingshot have gone for 3 new features to their boots. The addition of a new Mounting System, a new way to lace up, and new soles. Take a look at the boots down below.
Slingshot say: Packed full of new features, the 2017 Shredtown is a top-of-the-line boot designed for hard-charging riders who want a boot they can use with confidence in all aspects of the sport. A removable, synch-tight liner slips in and out easily and features a fashionable print and a hard-sole bottom for walking around parks, parking lots, weeds, rocks and night clubs. The liner has been redesigned for 2017 for easier entry and exit with the boot and is loaded with super soft padding that gives an ergonomic fit and extra cushion for those hard landings. The outer closure system features three Gummy Straps- one upper and two lower- for an ultra-secure and tight, yet flexible feel. The boot includes two sets of colored gummy straps that allows for added customization.
We say: The new Shredtown boots for 2017 are packed with new additions and changes. One of the main changes they’ve made for this year is the closure system. Slingshot have gone for a TPU strap design this year, making it easy to get in and out of your boots, yet keeping a comfy and flexible feel. Their new mounting system also sticks out this year, with what they like to call ‘K9’. A rigid mounting rode on the top of the boot eliminates heel and toe lift, and gives you better feedback throughout the board. The removable liner acts as a boot, perfect for the cable and the long walk back. The Shredtown’s are a perfect boot for any class.
Slingshot say: The 2017 KTV features an upgraded interior for added ergonomics and cushion and a three-piece Gummy Strap closure system that will have you booted-up and ready to ride in no time. With a medium flex, the KTV is the ideal boot for riders who like a little more give in their setup, whether for casual cruising or tweaking-out grabs.
We say: The KTV’s are the perfect boot for the rider who wants a flexier and easier ride. The Medium Flex of the boot is the ideal balance between balance and support. The Gummy Closure allows for you to find the perfect fit every time, and an easy entry and exit of the boot. The new K9 Mounting System eliminates the lift of the toe and heel, making it the perfect boot for any situation.
Slingshot say: The RAD has been a fan favorite on our lineup since day-one. Featuring a two-zone closure system with a synch-tight interior and one upper strap, the RAD provides the perfect balance between high comfort and high performance. For 2017 we’ve integrated upgrades both inside and out, including our new Gummy Strap closure system, improved interior padding and HHD (heel hold down) technology and our completely reworked K9 mounting system. Whether you’re cruising the lake with the family, boosting big airs, working laps at the cable park or winching with your buddies, the RAD is boot for all styles of riding and all conditions.
We say: The RAD boots are the ideal boot for any rider who wants a boot that can deliver, no matter what. Slingshot’s new direct-connect soles reduce the footprint of the boot and allows the board to flex more efficiently underfoot. With a direct connection to the deck, the reaction time of the board is immediate when you engage on your toes or heels to set an edge. This increases rider feel and control and improves the overall connection to your board. The Dual closure system offers comfort and flex at the same time, great for any rider.
Slingshot say: This female-specific boot is designed with the same two-zone closure system as the RAD boot but is scaled-down for a lower-profile fit. Featuring a two-zone closure system with a synch-tight interior and one upper strap, the Jewel provides the perfect balance between high comfort and high performance. For 2017 we’ve integrated upgrades both inside and out, including our new Gummy Strap closure system, improved interior padding and HHD (heel hold down) technology and our completely reworked K9 mounting system. For female riders looking for a boot designed specifically for their ergonomics and aesthetics, look no further than the Jewel.
We say: The Jewel is a key highlighted boot in the female side of Wakeboarding, and it’s easy to see why. Slingshot have replicated the RAD boot, but with a lower profile design. The K9 Mounting System and Gummy Strap Closure System make the boot similar to the Men’s Boots, but in a more feminine approach. The boot has even more padding than last year, which is good for long cable or boat sessions. All of this makes it an ideal boot for the missus.
Slingshot say: The Option provides a balance between convenience, versatility and performance. The open-toed design allows riders of multiple sizes to use the same boot, making the Option a great choice for families, camps, rental fleets and casual riders. A dual-zone closure setup features a synch-tight lace system and an upper Velcro strap for a versatile fit that can be tightened or loosened with ease depending on the user. If you’re looking for a performance boot that everyone can enjoy and won’t break the bank, the Option is your best option.
We say: The Option is a family friendly boot that allows for multiple sized feet to use the boot. This open-toe design makes it perfect for people using the same wakeboard, and not wanting the hassle of changing out the boots. With the Option’s, you’ll be ready to ride in no time. The Lace System paired with the Velcro Strap allows for an easy entry and exit.
