First Look: Irish Setter VaprTrek Realtree EDGE Snake Boot

posted on May 19, 2020
The VaprTrek, from Irish Setter, combines Realtree camouflage and full-grain waterproof leather, with SnakeGuard protection and flex-point leather reinforcement, for a durable snake boot. An EVA footbed with a memory foam top layer is breathable, providing fatigue-fighting comfort. The uppers are fully waterproof, thanks to the aforementioned full-grain leather, with Rip Stop fabric, military-grade quick-dry linings, and an additional layer of Ultra Dry waterproofing. The collar is constructed of memory foam for multi-climate comfort, while a Cushin Comfort tongue and ScentBan scent control round out these boots' top side.

For longevity, Armatec XT technology adds abrasion resistance in high-wear areas of the heel and toe. Beneath, a nylon shank adds arch support, while EnerG technology within the dual-density midsole promises extra comfort in heel and forefoot impact zones. For traction, the outsole is constructed with multi-tiered, self-cleaning lugs. Rubber pods are also utilized, toward the same end. Finally, a wrap-around instep provides extra grip on tree stand rungs, or foot pegs on an ATV.
