Muck Boots is well known for its comfortable slip-on boots, but in 2015 they are releasing a lace-up version.

I asked why the switch from the traditional Muck slip-on style. The main reason is for support. The new Pursuit Shadow line is amazingly lightweight and can literally be rolled up and tucked into a suitcase or duffle bag for easy travel.

The Pusuit Shadow line comes in a high, mid or ankle version and each has an outstanding fit. Muck lightened the weight by using a new EVA mid and Pod outsole that offer cushion support and grip on wet surfaces.

The lightweight boots are ideal for stalking predators or big game, but will work equally as well in a treestand.

The boots also feature: Inscentable (scent-masking technology), antimicrobial treatment, 5mm neoprene insulation, full waterproof gusset, fleece lining and sockliner, and comes in Realtree Xtra.

Suggested Retail Price: Ankle $184.95, Mid $229.95, Tall $265.95 Available for fall 2015.

With turkey season and warm-weather predator hunting just around the corner, Muck also has a Pursuit Snake Boot available now.

This boot was balloon tested against rattlesnake strikes and worked flawlessly. A durable rubber coating on the exterior of the boot protects the user inside from snakebites. While the boot features 4mm of neoprene in the full-waterproof design, it also features Muck’s exclusive XpressCool fabric lining to keep your feet cool in warm weather. MSRP: $224.95
