Hunters and other outdoor types dote on Muck Boots because of their practicality. Invariably, Mucks are dry, comfortable and affordable. Find a model that fits a basic need, and chances are those boots will get frequent use. Or perhaps, if you’re like me, that translates to daily wear, training my dog and taking care of the homestead.

One may find more specialized boots geared to certain specific conditions, but rarely will you find any more versatile than Mucks. I’ve experienced just that with this newest addition to their Arctic Outpost, which distinctively looks like a pac-boot since it joins a rubber lower with a premium waterproof leather upper, and, unlike the Mucks so familiar to many of us, these lace-up rather than pull on. That means a more secure, custom fit that can mean all the difference while toiling at the jobsite or during extended hikes over rugged terrain.

A Muck staple is its 4 mm CR Flex-Foam neoprene lining, which molds to the wearer’s feet while ensuring warmth, shock absorption and waterproofing, plus there’s a soft fleece inner lining that adds an extra measure of comfort. At nearly 12-inches high, these form-fitting boots not only afford dry footing, but also serious ankle support. For optimum performance in slick, icy conditions, opt for the Vibram Arctic Grip Outsoles, whose advanced lug technology responds to temperature extremes to provide the surest grip ever from Vibram.    

If you work hard, play hard and hunt hard through all sorts of winter weather, here’s a boot that shows up for duty without fail—one you won’t be hesitant to wear because of difficulty getting them on or off, or because they soon feel heavy, ill-fitting and uncomfortable. At $200-$205 suggested retail, that’s both practical and smart. For more information, please visit muckbootcompany.com.
