You havenít specified sizing, what is the boot size range for the first batch?
- Not finalised yet, but we expect to have two sizes. If you're between an 8 and a 12 you're likely to be OK. We will poll backers for sizes during the campaign to lock this in.

If I were to invest in The Strewth SLS instead of hookers and blow what happens if you donít reach the 100k by March 14th?
- If we fall short of the target, we'll be looking to bridge the gap elsewhere (depending how big the gap is) and carry on, ie you get your bindings. If that fails, you keep your money.

Seems like an obvious answer from the pix, but let's just ask it anyway -- you can strap/unstrap like a traditional binding, right?
- Yes. Standard straps & buckles. You can strap in and unstrap normally. The buckles are a bit stiffer than normal to prevent unwanted tightening when the boot is out, ie similar to a Cinch or Flow buckle.

Also, less obvious -- is the highback sprung in any way? Does it pop open on its own when you release, or does it pop up on its own? Or does it just stay wherever you leave it?
- The hiback is not sprung. It will basically stay where you leave it. A slight push with the toe of your boot will open it if needed, as long as the binding is not locked closed.
