Recommended Water Temps: 15C/60F+
Sizing Tip: Order your regular shoe size or half a size down, as they expand to fit when molded. 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.
Next Level Warm-Water Performance
The 2022 2mm Custom Reef 2.0 has been completely redesigned for even more durability and protection while still delivering Solite's unmatched barefoot performance. Check out all of these improvements:
3D Molded Sole with Ballistic Laminate
Like all of our new 2.0 Series boots, the Reef features a one-piece, 3D molded 1mm natural rubber sole. The sole wraps up the toes and heel for increased durability and protection against rocks, urchins, and reef. For additional urchin defense, we co-mold a flexible, puncture-resistant ballistic textile into the rubber sole. This invisible shield maintains barefoot feel while protecting your feet from urchin spines and razor-sharp coral.
Custom-Fit 2.0 Thermofoam Sole
Our patented heat-moldable 2.0 Thermofoam Sole has also been completely redesigned including a more comfortable Mini-Split internal split toe. The Mini-Split is 1cm shorter than our prior internal split, improving fit and comfort for a wider variety of toe shapes while still maintaining precise control. The Thermfoam Sole is 4mm thick in the toes/heels for extra protection and 3mm elsewhere to avoid over-heating in tropical waters.
3-Point Strap with Floating D-Ring
Another Solite innovation, our 3-Point Strap anchors under both the arch and heel on the inside of the foot, and under the heel on the outside of the foot. When the strap is tightened, the boot snugs up evenly under the arch and through the rear of the boot, providing instant response and slop-free fit for all arch and ankle profiles. Our Floating D-Ring on the strap isn't stitched in place, allowing it to "float" naturally to the optimal position on your foot. Our 3-Point Strap also is 100% Tatex-coated for extra durability and zero water absorption.
Breathable Ventiprene Upper with EZ-O Cuff
To prevent excess waterflow into the boot, we've updated the 2mm neoprene from perforated (2mm holes) to Ventiprene (microscopic holes), allowing the feet to breathe and stay cool without letting in water. This keeps your feet lighter for optimal quickness and dexterity. The Ventiprene foam is lined with our most abrasion-resistant Tuff Skin exterior lining and a quick-dry interior. We've had so much success with our EZ-O cuff design on our other boots, we adopted the design to our low-cuff styles. The EZ-O cuff provides a flush-resistant, low-bulk, seamless seal around the ankle without the need for cords or toggles.
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.
