We’ve been waiting on the sports series to arrive for a while now after seeing them at ICAST and being blown away by how light and comfortable they were. If you don’t mind an ankle deck boot over a 12″ size then these are going to be the best boot you can buy. They are super light compared to the standard ankle deck boots and seem to fit wider feet a lot better making them more comfortable. They still retain the rugged design of the tradition boots and are 100% waterproof. As someone would rather risk the chance of hooking myself by wearing flip flops than a standard boot, these are now on my shopping list because of how much better they feel. They come in gray and navy, the navy might look better over time with hard use but the gray should stay a lot cooler in the sun.
As fishing has evolved so has fishermen’s needs, so we continue to innovate and solve for how our boots and footwear can help them feel safe, confident, and comfortable. The Ankle Deck Boot Sport brings you everything you would expect from your XTRATUF® boots but in a sportfishing specific silhouette that is up to 30% lighter than other 6 inch boots in this category. This Sport is built from a new high-performance foam PRO LITE which is ultra-durable and slip resistant, all while being a one-piece outsole. This boot delivers the comfort and agility of a sneaker with long cushion life and high energy return, all while offering the same traction benefits of a full rubber boot.
