BOA BOOT

In an industry-first collaborative effort with Michelin®

Technology at your feet

This revolutionary new sole design is an industry-disrupting advance in wet rubber traction. The Michelin Outdoor Extreme outsole offers 25% better abrasion resistance and a resounding 43% improvement in wet rubber traction over the competition. Using Michelin tire geometry, it offers a wider footprint for stability, a higher ratio of surface contact, and a lug pattern that reduces shock and improves pressure distribution. The two-layer midsole has a co-molded ESS plate that provides improved stud retention and torsional stability. Starting in 2021, shock-absorbing BLOOM® Rise algae midsole provides “river feel” and algae technology cleans 114 liters of water per pair of boots.

Safety first

Orvis partnered with OrthoLite® to create a 3D molded X25 insole designed for high-impact sports, delivering maximum comfort and arch support. An industry-first cast PU upper eliminates seams while providing a zoned cage for added stability, grip, and extreme abrasion resistance without the added bulk. The boot is higher cut for ankle support and lined with closed-cell foam. Scratch rubber at the toe cap and heel for abrasion resistance, an oversized heel pull for easier on-and-off. Available with traditional or BOA laces.

Use

Built on an outsole compound specifically designed for fly fishing.

PRO APPROACH SHOE

Rugged multi-purpose shoe

Technology at your feet

The strength and reduced weight come from seamless PU cage technology that provides superior drainage, as well as durability. An integrated Ariaprene® sock prevents debris from entering the shoe while providing excellent ankle support and breathability.

Safety first

Continuing the innovative PRO footwear story is a the Michelin® Outdoor Extreme rubber outsole that provides 43% better wet rubber traction and 25% higher abrasion resistance than the competition. Removable 3D molded OrthoLite® insole rests on a BLOOM® Rise algae midsole for all-day comfort and enhanced “river feel.” Integrated lace hood allows laces to easily tuck away.

Use

Versatility is an understatement for this incredibly lightweight, quick-drying, yet rugged multi-purpose shoe.
