Grundens introduced anglers to the new Deck-Boss Boot at Icast 2017, and Gunden’s representative Matt took the time to introduce Inventive Fishing to the boot, as well.
From Grunden’s web page:
The Deck-Boss 15-inch Boot is engineered to be tough and durable, and is built with a rigid toe cap and an injection molded upper that eliminates delamination and cracking. Patented “Herkules Grip” synthetic rubber technology also provides superior traction on wet surfaces. The flexible upper folds down when the full 15-inch height is not needed and a 1-inch groove holds a durable silicone band that keeps pants out of the muck and legs dry.
Functional Comfort: The boot’s interior is a comfortable and functional patent-pending proprietary insole. Engineered to mimic the bilge space in a boat, the insole is comprised of two separate levels, or “decks.” The softer upper deck is perforated, allowing liquid to find its way to the bilge space and can be replaced with after-market insoles for a more customized fit. The lower deck sits on pilings that create bilge space for liquid to accumulate. There are scuppers around the perimeter of the lower deck to allow liquid to drain into the bilge space.
