Product Info

Rusty's boot is built like nothing the wake industry has ever seen because of its true footwear construction. The Hyperlite Marek Wakeboard Boot interfaces with the System Boot allowing for a lightweight feel and maximum comfort. Beginning with a lightweight EVA outsole and TPR impact pods, the Marek boot creates great cushioning under foot. Custom insoles with integrated arch support cradle the foot for maximum stability. Hyperlite’s exclusive Ultralon heat moldable liner material creates a custom fit and comfort throughout the boot. The Marek boot also features the tallest cuff and most supportive feel in the System line, perfect for riders looking for instant response and a more locked in feel.

I really like the boot. It is very clean without miles of laces to get in your way like you gets from so many other boots. The boots are very stiff to the point where walking in one is like walking in a snowboard boot and is very awkward.

As for size... If you are between sizes be sure to order a size UP! I'm a 9.5 which always puts me in between sizes and it's usually worse than between 9 and 10. It's usually 7-9 and 10-13 so the smaller size has always been fine for me. Even my buddies Hyperlite boots are 8-9 fit and a girls Ronix boots for 7-8 will fit me without a problem.

This boot on the other hand does not like to be stretched. I've heat molded the boots 3 times now. The first time was just with my foot, second time was with a sock, and third time was with a regular sock and a thick winter sock. My foot still gets incredibly cramped after 2-3 minutes so I guess I just need to get a bigger boot.

The first time I took the Mareks out it was great. Good response, easier landings than my ronix bindings, and high level of adjustability. I liked the boots a lot. Most importantly they gave me much needed ankle support.

Then, on my second trip out the sole of the boot completely came off and rendered them useless. All the previous comments mean nothing if the boot falls apart. I saw another guy out there the next day who had the same problem, and tried to glue it back on with no luck.

I'm going to try out the Process boots to see if those are more durable. I would not recommend the Mareks to anyone.

        These boots are great, I have a flat wide foot and at first I purchased the Murry boot. It was way too narrow, my feet were in so much pain after a session. Do I purchased the marek boot and it fit just rite, was wide enough for my feet , very stiff and responsive and the boa lace up system make the boot so easy to put on and adjust in the water , even while riding. I took a hard landing though and the top lace seems to not stay locked now, ordered a new lace so hopefully it will work. Other than that great boot.

          These boots are great! I wanted them so I wouldn't have to walk around the cable park or lake without any shoes. The boots are comfortable and lightweight enough so I can just stap into the bindings and go!!!

                  super stiff boot so if your looking for support look no farther. Overall this is a narrow feeling boot yielding a snug fit. boa system is perfect for dailing in and making on the fly adjustments. the upper lacing system needs a better locking mechanism as they tend to come loose. Great response and feel overall.

                    Best boots I've ever tried. hold your feet very nicely.

                    but upper lace gets loose after landing(impact)

                    Still heavier than Ronix frank binding.

                        These boots are solid. Incredible feel, especial coming from an all in one binding/boot. They are more on the stiff side, but they really are easy to get on and off. Best of all, they don't loosen at all while you're shredding. Love 'em.
