WAKEBOARDING BOOTS
CWB MDWBM

WHAT'S NEW
Highest, most supportive cut in CWB line, Cush liner with shock pads, Infinity plate for a light yet strong foundation

WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
Have you seen Dowdy ride? Of course you have, and you know he charges. Think he could do that with heavy, ill-fitting boots? Nope, of course not.

THE PRO'S WORDS
"Jedi wake boots." – Mike Dowdy

WAKEBOARDING BOOTS
JOBE MORPHWBM

WHAT'S NEW
Custom insole and EVA and rubber outsole in conjunction with Evo binding

WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
Fashion and function. Ride until you can't ride anymore, then walk away in style. Actually, we don't recommend that, unless you want to be on Wakezeach, but you could do it if you wanted.

THE PRO'S WORDS
"The new kosher." – Julian Cohen
