2017 Shredtown: 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, cinch-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.
Gummy Straps: The Shredtown comes with two sets of gummy straps (Black and Red). Straps of other colors can be purchased individually and are cut-to-fit.
Gummy STRAPS: The closure you’ve been yearning for:
Finally, a simple and effective solution to a problem that has afflicted wakeboarding boots since the very beginning. Slingshot’s new “Gummy Straps” are a simple and brilliant new closure system that utilizes super strong, high-tension Thermoplastic Poly Urethane (TPU) to synch your boots tight. No more loosening over time, no more Velcro, no more cumbersome closure systems: Gummy Straps stretch when you fasten them, then squeeze your boots tight as you ride. Gummy Straps are easily interchangeable and each boot comes with two sets of colors so you can customize your style.
NEW DIRECT CONNECT SOLES:
Baseplates are a thing of the past. 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.
NEW K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM:
New for 2017, Slingshot’s K9 mounting system provides a solid connection to your board, eliminates heel/toe lift and provides fully customizable mounting options so you can set your stance exactly the way you want it. A mounting rode is bolted onto the sole of the boot and connects by a rugged clamp, making this the most robust mounting system we’ve ever had.
REMOVABLE LINER WITH WALKABOUT SOLES:
Perfect for walking around the park, the pavement and trendy night clubs, the Shredtown’s removable walkaround liners feature a cinch-tight drawstring and hard-sole bottom. The combination provides a dual-zone closure for superior ankle support and a rugged surface for walking around between rides.
