I would suggest the Process boots to start, as the Mareks are the stiffest boot in their line. Since the One boot is their 2nd stiffest boot in their line, its probably most similar to...

First of all, no offense to the OP but the boots pictured are definitely 2013s not '14s.

The boots got a complete overhaul in '14 (made with new lasts and materials) and while they mine (also...

the G21 wake is an exact fusion of the g23 and the old 210, basically: G23 size, with old 210 steepness. I rode it in deepish water (~12-15 ft) with stock ballast and people, and it was easily the...
