Kryptek Ankle Deck Boot

Their extensive lineup includes models for men, women and children. Based in Alaska, their footwear has been designed to meet the rigorous demands of the Alaskan fishing industry - Deadliest Catch viewers take note. They have been doing it for over 50 years, so there is no mistaking the quality or integrity of their products.

Two of the newest additions to their lineup should certainly be of interest to Fisherman readers. Their new XTRATUF® Riptide performance water shoe features the same non-slip Chevron outsole as their original commercial grade fishing boots. They are designed for easy on / easy off comfort and feature a breathable quick dry airmesh upper to allow for drainage. They retail for approximately $80.

Their XTRATUF® Ankle Deck Boot collection was designed specifically for offshore anglers. These ankle high boots are available in exclusive camouflage patterns Yeti White and Pontus Blue. They feature lightweight design and the same XTRATUF® slip-resistant Chevron outsole found in their Legacy boots, which are worn on the slippery decks of Alaska commercial boats, and where a slip could mean disaster. Constructed with hand-laid rubber, they are easy to slip on and off, and are completely waterproof. They retail for $89.99.
