With the success of Watson's Pro-Plate boot in '06, one wondered how he could improve on this design… Shawn has brought us the answer in '07….After trying Shane's closed toe boot this season Shawn knew that he wanted something similar. He felt the dramatically increased leverage and edging power, as well as the precise edge control he got with the closed toe. What Shawn came up with for '07 was a hybrid of sorts between his '06 binding and Shane's '06 binding, but with plenty of new "Watson" features and improvements. Shawn's new boot is still the stiffest boot in our line, and is now even taller and more supportive than before. Shawn helped redesign the Liquid Liner to make it fit better and increase the comfort. The depth of the heel kidneys were increased, giving your foot a better hold in the boot, and the upper cuff wraps around your calf more for a better all around fit. The boot that defined innovation, comfort and performance in 2006 has just gotten better thanks to Watson and the LF design crew… Look for this boot in the finest wake shops this fall…if you're not a fan of the closed toe design, don't worry… Shawn's open toe design remains in our lineup and comes with all of the improvements Watson has incorporated into his closed toe design.
