Ease of entry, comfort, and style is what the Optima Wakeboard Boots by Connelly is all about. The lycra lined heel and toe make the boot easy to step in and a single lace system encloses the boot around your foot like it was molded just for you. This is a super-light design that fits a wide variety of sizes. Boots come in a variety of sizes for men and women.

Our pursuit of crafting a comfortable, effective wakeboard binding didn’t end when we formulated our proprietary Lycra Lining in the 90’s. Although we had nailed the comfort part, we were still lacking in control.
Originally, wake board bindings were built on large, gnarly plates constructed with neoprene, rubber and long metal bars that supported the bindings. They were heavy, stiff and an inefficient use of space and made it tough for riders to connect with how their board moved through the water.
It was a simple yet extremely effective solution. In 2008, we reassembled the boot mounting circle from 8” to 6”, fashioning a slimmer chassis and a smaller footprint. This increased the natural flex in the board and offered a heightened sense of rider-to-board connection.
Today, this technology has developed into our Infinity baseplate system and acts as the standard for the entire industry. It remains the best fitting, lightest weight, and strongest foundation.
