O’Neill Freaksneak Hi-Top Boot
A lot of surfers have a love/hate relationship with booties. I didn’t like them for the longest time. But now, with boards getting shorter, wider, and feeling more like skateboards, it’s only natural for bootie-makers to take note and create a bootie that mixes the performance and warmth of a modern surf boot, with the styling of a skate shoe—may I introduce the Freaksneak Hi-Top Boot. I admit, this bootie will not be for everyone, and I haven’t tried them out myself so I cannot attest to the board feel and comfort. What I can say is they look pretty awesome and I’d be hyped to give these things a try. Maybe I’ll be doing kickflips? Who knows. Either way, O’Neill started building booties in the 1960s, I’d say they know a thing or two about surf sneaks.—CC
