A southern hunter has one need a northern hunter might not ever consider—protection from snake bites. That’s why we put SnakeGuard Extreme material over these 17″ size-zip boots to make you snake-proof. The Z-Trac slip-resistant rubber outsole with gripping pad and rugged lug provide superior traction. The EVA/polyurethane cushion midsole absorbs the shock of every step so you can hunt all day without fatigue. Cradle your foot in comfort with the removable dual-density polyurethane footbed. These tough boots stay good-looking longer with 3M™ Scotchgard™Protection. And that’s a good thing, since they’ll last you for years to come.
