Yeah! I'm afraid about that. Sad to hear that. However, i'll give it a try. And I agree, this is rediculous that we have to try on our own, but in Hawaii you do not need to ride with neo boots :lol: :lol:
Not that I am saying that I am jealous..... but maybe I am :lol:
Idea is very nice - but if many people try this out and end up in tearing the loop apart they might return to you and ask for refund :lol: :lol:

Instead of my previous klunky O'Neill boots that were EOL over a season ago (but still used them last winter), I've now bought Atan madisson 3mm neo/rubber 'socks' that promise a barefoot feeling and certainly feel thin enough to use with the Apex straps. I didn't have the Apex last season but am certain the O'Neills wouldn't fit.

They are so thin that I can actually use them with my flipflops :lol: which, since the sole is very thin, will increase longevity when going from parking lot to the beach.

Only heared that for 2020 there will be a "Large" version of the Apex, so you just have to wait a little and then you will not have to tinker around anymore
2020? :lol:
So I suggest you try this:
count 1 + 1 = ?
do this for 10 times in a row. If you achieve the same result in every single attempt, we can go on discussing :cool2:

:-) Nice discussion here :-)

However... I had my first sessions with that "update" and it worked out very well. Just to let you know... :-)

Take care...

I thought it was just me struggling to get a fit with boots on.
Thought maybe I'd been sold a wrong size.
Like the idea of trying your mod out but struggling to find it in the UK.

If you buy 50mm self adhesive Velcro (for example from Amazon/Halford's) you can easily extend the Apex straps by making back to back 'hook' and 'loop' strips and trim to size.

I appreciate that,just liked the idea of the original posters quick fix of loop through and done.
I'll have a look around see what's about.
Also have Atan boots,just didn't think they were as worm as my double lined boots for winter.

Why I don't post very often.
Yes I'm sure the way you suggest is quick and easy and something I will look at.
