Kiteboarding Specific Mystic Lightning 3mm
Wetsuit Shoes feature higher quality neoprene and glued and
The Mystic Lightning shoes comes complete
with Mystic's M-Flex Neoprene giving them maximum flex and
durability complete with ankle straps to reduce excess water
coming into the shoe after a fall into the water.
Offering a split toe design along with enough
neoprene to keep your feet warm throughout and prevent your
boot rolling over your foot if being pulled sideways when
walking with your kite down to the ocean.
The addition of a Heel pull loop also allows
you to get in and out of the boots quickly.
The Lightning shoe also comes with a thin
grip sole to allow a close connection with your board - no
matter what the waters throws at you!
Neoprene - The most flexible neoprene
in the Mystic range. M-flex gives maximum flex and durability.
and Blind-Stitched Water Sealing:
The edges of the neoprene panels
are covered with a highly adhesive, UV resistant contact
glue which needs to dry for a few minutes. Then the glue
is applied a second time to make it more sticky. Once
the corresponding parts of the neoprene edges are put
together by hand and then firmly squeezed with an electric
pressing tool cm by cm to achieve the high tearing strength,
the seams are stitched on the inside with a special blind-stitch
sewing machine. A curved needle pokes through the neoprene
layer and applies an elastic seam on the outside. By using
this technique, the seam is highly tear proof, elastic
and completely watertight and provides insulation and
Velcro straps allows you to cinch the boot as close to
your skin as possible in all the places where water is
most likely to enter your shoe allowing you to keep more
heat in and even more water out.
- Two reinforced pieces and a flexible neoprene
midsection increasing the flexibility of the sole that
results in more grip and a better stance.
Split Toe Inside
- A thin layer besides
the big toe preventing sideways slipping - preventing
your boot rolling over your foot if being pulled sideways
when walking with your kite down to the ocean.
- a supportive pad on the
medial side of the foot arch giving a better feel and
- supportive reinforcements placed
against slipping and twisting of the feet in the boot.
- the smooth frictional top of the boot ensures
a better fit in wider footstraps.
