Im looking for a set of kiteboot bindings that allow one to walk around in case of running aground in shallow water or low wind and still have foot protection.

Any recommendations? I was thinking hyperlight or maybe one witha removable liner like these: www.slingshotsports.com/2017-Shredtown#.WijP8yk7bqA

It would need to fit a tona pop board.

if your running aground you shouldnt be wearing boots.

but hyperlights are your only option regardless

Its more of tidal issue. I like to kite until i run out of water. With boots i can run finless so the session lasts longer.

Anyone got a preference for which hyperlight boot works best?

Also has anyone tried slingshot boots (shredtown, ktv or rad)? Whats the difference in terms of weight and flex?

Im looking for a medium flex and have narrow flatish feet... Any of the above boots more suitable for this?

I tried the Shredtown for a few sessions but found them too high and super stiff...prefer a medium high/flex boot as well. KTV doesn't have removable liner so if you're looking for that then Slingshot is out.
Agree that Hyperlite Systems would be your best bet. If you're in Melbourne talk to Simon at KR...he's riding the Systems and can tell you all about the different boots cos not all of them are great for kiting.

Have you looked at the 2018 cabrinha h3? Can't comment on them but the 2017 I have without the removable liner are going well, definitely light & flexible. Looks like they've got the same base plate.

How so? The 2018 h3 have a removable liner. Surely they fit on a tona pop. What am I missing fanfare?
