From the very first surf boot Jack built in the 1960’s to the patented SuperFreak of the 90’s (US Patent No. 5,913,592), O’Neill has always put our best foot forward when it comes to innovative boot invention and design. All the best materials combined with the latest in construction methods, hand built to perfection with the utmost attention to every detail. We’ve put these things to the test, climbing over barnacles and barbed wire fences on the way out to nameless cold water reefs and point breaks. Don’t let punishing cold and rugged terrain keep you from the barrel of a lifetime. O’Neill boots, “It’s always Summer on the inside”.
Xcel’s most advanced bootie gets a major upgrade for Winter 2015, with all new TDC Thermo Dry Celliant, a revolutionary inner lining with smart fibers that recycle your body heat into infrared energy for greater warmth, increased endurance, faster recovery, and enhanced overall performance. The Drylock is loaded with more exclusive features including angled Velcro straps, seamless Drylock ankle seals, a thin yet durable sole design, and UltraStretch Neoprene. The boot is also 100% glued & blindstitched, which means a more watertight construction as stitches never fully penetrate the neoprene.
The new Infiniti 8mm boot is our go-to boot for winter surfing. Premium Plush Thermo Lite quick-dry lining accelerates drying time to improve warmth and overall performance. A pressure bonded pull loop, taped seams and a new moulded strap minimise water entry and increase durability, while a single rubber base and engineered fit maximise board feel without sacrificing warmth or comfort.
