The patent-pending Litewave Foot Lock System (FLS) Sandal is the best foot-to-board connection available period.
A 6” wide lace-up section covers more of your foot for more edge control than a footstrap. Connection at four points eliminates fore-aft rocking to give the rider more direct edge control. When you press on your toes, 100% of the energy is transferred to the edge of the board.
The injection molded pad is soft and superbly contoured to keep your heel locked in, form-fit your arch, and a toe-shelf lets you really hang on with your toes. Thermoformed grip insert redefines traction.
Lace-up strap part uniquely attaches to the footpad independently of the screw that holds only the pad down to the board. This makes it super easy to attach and remove, much like a wake binding.
The Litewave FLS Sandal Binding is available in 2 sizes, USA 5-11 or USA 9-14. The FLS comes standard on all Litewave twin-tip boards or is available separately.

FLS Sandal bindings which are unique in how the foot straps mount to the foam baseplate via Velcro straps underfoot making setup simple and easy. Testers found the pads to be more firm in density while the laceup foot straps were all encompassing and generally very comfortable. Some testers prefer a Velcro adjustment to laceup tensioners, while others testers liked the adjustability of laceups.
