A modern wading boot is a real paradox. It should be as durable as the best working boot and as light as a jogging shoe. It should be as easy to put on as a slipper and still support your ankle as well as a full-blooded hiking boot. And the traction should be similar to pole climber?s gaffs, regardless of the environment in concern. VISION was painfully aware of all the above, because they have designed wading boots for more than 15 years already. Latest development is a wading boot called LOIKKA, a model that includes all the experience VISION has gained over the past years. These boots are the final outcome of 15 years of evolution ? they are so far the best wading boots the Scandinavian company ever built.
The foundation of these fully synthetic boots lies on the highly popular Mako boots, but it includes several essential improvements. The front part of the boot is now well protected by a special ''rubber shield''. The number and positioning of always vulnerable seams is optimized. The ankle part gives a proper support and is lined with comfortable neoprene. Its construction also makes it extremely easy to put the boot on and off. Shoe laces go through nylon loops on the lower part and reduce thus the number of metallic staples, which can in the worst case wear the laces and rust when used in saltwater conditions. Loops enable fast and easy tightening of laces with less energy.
However, having stated all the above, the biggest improvement of them all, can be found from the sole part of these boots. After a long period of development and testing, the new rubber sole, called GUMMI is a material that is clearly softer and stickier than other rubber soles. As a result the Gummi material provides a unique level of traction. To make sure that the sole stays glued to the bottom of the boot, VISION extended the sole to cover the front part of the shoe giving thus good toe protection.
