A modern wading boot is a real paradox. It should be as durable as the best working boot and as light as a running shoe, as easy to put on as a slipper but still support your ankle as well as a full-blooded hiking boot. Add into that the demand for all the traction of a pole climber's gaffs, regardless of the environment you can see it's a difficult brief to fulfill!
Because Vision have designed wading boots for more than 15 years already they are well aware of all the problems above and these boots are the final outcome of 15 years of evolution – they are Vision's dream wading boots.
Based on the best selling Mako boot but with vital improvements throughout, These mean that the boot is extremely easy to put on and take off, harder wearing, more comfortable and offer better support.
- The front of the boot has an "rubber shield" for added protection
- The seams numbering and postitioning has been optimized
- The ankle part is lined with neoprene & designed for awesome support
- Draws from the ultra-comfortable Hopper boots
- Loops enable fast and easy tightening of laces with less energy
To make sure that the sole stays glued to the bottom of the boot Vision have extended the sole to cover the front part of the shoe protecting for toes. This way these boots will almost always avoid an all too common disaster where something sharp goes between the sole and the boot and eventually makes the sole come away. Nylon lace loops on the lower part reducing the number of metallic staples, which can wear the laces and rust when used in saltwater conditions. These boots are meant to be used in the hardest imaginable conditions. You just can't abuse them. Go and give your best shot.
The most stand-out the biggest improvement of all is the newly developed "GUMMI" rubber sole the product of a long period of development and testing. This material is clearly softer and stickier than for example widely used Vibram. As a result this is a material which is provides a unique level of traction.
