Animal Overlay

ALPJrALPJr Posts: 1,874 Mega Baller
I'm looking for an overlay for my large front (left foot) Animal. Any Ballers know where I can find one?

    Willeys has them they can even rebiuld it for you and send it back to you. the animal was/is a great boot

    If your Animal boot is the older red and black with the flat "horse shoe" in the back, your only source may be Wileys. And, if they have them I am pretty they are non-lace up.

    Red and black with laces and superfeet.

    @ALPJr‌ I have had that issue plenty times during about 10+ years of using the old red and black Animals. What has worked well to milk the bindings for some more sets is to stitch that little tear using a large stong sewing needle and some mono fishing line. Stay a 1/4 inch on either side of the tear as you stitch it up. You can use some needle nose pliers to help push the needle through the rubber, then pull it through the rest of the way.
    Are those the older boots that are flat on the bottom of the heal piece? If so, you are going to have a real hard time finding replacement wraps. Last I knew Wiley's had some, but what they had did not have the rear laces, So, you would need to get your wrap adjusted just right, a lil tough to get on, but still snug for skiing.
    A better bet might be to purchase some close out Radar Strada bindings at the Wakehouse.com
    The Stradas are great bindings to move up from the Animals.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll stick with the Animals for now, pretty happy with them, and call Performance, Wiley's and HO.

    I have a new spare wrap for large animal super feet that I will never use. I also have a Left front large animal and right rear large animal bindings. I bought after ankle injury, never used because I switched to hard shells after injury. FYI... Injury was with HO Phantom bindings.

    @david_ski‌ Wow just what I need. Let's talk about getting them to CT. Thanks !

    You could also just use a D3 Leverage overlay (order direct).

    Wiley's has a one piece neoprene overly that fits Animals that works very well. It does not have laces but once you install it and adjust the length of the overlay to suite your needs it will last forever. I generally only got a year or so of use out of the HO overlay before it started to split. I have not had to change the Wiley's one piece version yet.

    My Animals are in their 14th season. I replaced the rear overlay two seasons ago. Pretty durable boots overall.

    Sorry to Necro an old thread, but I could not find the post someone made the other day about looking for some, but we do have some back in stock at Performance if you are still looking for them.

    Lace or non lace? Fronts and rears? All sizes? Thx.
  • mikemapplemikemapple Posts: 2 New Baller
    hey @DW Lace up pretty sure they are the standard size so for a small foot youd have some rubber to trim, I will check tomorrow morning when im back in the shop and let you know.

    @DW The overlays that we have are for the Round back animal boots, the overlay is the same front and rear. If you want to give us a call at the shop anyone will be able to help you. Or if you want to email me what boot you have I can let you know if it will fit.
