SHOT Show—Boot Review
By Will Snyder
The Original Muck Boot Company is entering a new market with upland and big-game hunting boots, a break from the usual molded chore boots the label is known for. At the top of the line is the Longspur, a leather and synthetic fiber boot that is built for long range hiking. A Swiss tongue wraps around the outside channel of the shoe, which gives the shin bone room to move. The leather pattern is also unique. Cut in triangular shapes, the leather offers support around the ankles, but doesn't require any breaking in, since the pattern follows the contour of the foot's natural motion. It goes without saying that the boot is waterproof and breathable, two standard features of the company's designs.
