Rocky Boots has introduced two new snake boots in its Rocky Athletic Mobility line featuring brand new SnakeGuard Extreme technology for spring 2013. SnakeGuard Extreme fuses two fabrics together to create the ultimate in snakebite resistance and offers protection throughout the entire 16-inch boot rather than only in select areas like traditional snakeboots.
The boots are Level 3 in the Rocky Athletic Mobility System, which is a layered collection of athletic-inspired hunting footwear and apparel designed for any climate or conditions. Level 1 is lightweight, breathable gear, Level 2 is for moderate weather and Level 3 is built for harsh conditions.
“We’ve listened to our consumers and created a snake boot that combines Rocky Athletic Mobility comfort with the best protective technologies available today,” said Sam Bowman, marketing manager for Rocky Brands. “The Rocky Athletic Mobility snake boots were tested with the strike of eastern diamondback rattlesnakes, so we know they offer supreme protection while remaining versatile in the field.”
Above the SnakeGuard Extreme fabric, the boots feature a durable, waterproof GORE-TEX fabric, Scent IQ scent and moisture control and a padded ripstop nylon collar. The sole is constructed with an abrasion-resistant molded heel and toe and an aggressive multi-directional rubber outsole.
Both the lace-up and pull-on styles have a waterproof side zipper for easy on/easy off. The boots are RealTree Xtra Green with brown leather overlays. The pull-on has a suggested retail price of $269.99 and the lace-up is listed at $299.99
