Introducing the X Series Wading Boots with Dual Zone Sole Technology

Finally a TOUGH AS Wading Boot!

Introducing the NEW X-Series wading boot, built tough to withstand the demands of the New Zealand back-country rivers. We have removed the features that flaw many other boots, and developed a clean and simple design that masters functionality and boasts second-to-none durability. Developed in conjunction with our Riverworks Pro Team, the X-Series boot is built tough, while keeping you comfortable and focused on enjoying your day on the river.




The sole of the X-Series boot introduces revolutionary ‘Dual Zone’ technology, a sole that encapsulates EVA Prostep foam inserts and a one-piece Hydragrip outer. This new generation technology has created a sole that is 70% tougher than others on the market, designed from the beginning to be a one-piece rubber sole, removing the possibility of peeling and join faults.




The tread of the X-Series boot has also been seriously thought out; the outside of the tread to give grip on mud and wet grass, a micro step heel for downhill traction, and the center of the tread has a high surface area for ultimate traction on slippery rocks. Combined with a full moulded shank for torsional rigidity and flex control and a high customizability with 30 stud positions, this sole is unlike any other, and looks to change the way wading boots are constructed in the future.



Through the success of our XRT Wading boots we are keeping the full Nubuck leather upper for the X Series Wading boots. Leather has proven itself over the centuries as being the most durable material for hiking and mountaineering footwear. Even with the latest advancements in technology leather is still king! We have limited the exposed seams and stitching to cut on rocks and triple stitched these areas. The X Series boot has an upper that will take a serious punishment!

To ensure that you enjoy wearing these boots, the X Series wading boots have been fitted with a comfortable neoprene lining. Coupled with a neoprene cuff at the top of the boot, these features ensure that there is minimal water absorption and maximum comfort.




To create such a durable and comfortable boot we challenged our design team to push every aspect to the full, focusing on the little details that make the biggest difference. The X Series Wading Boot features full roller eyes to make lacing up smooth, effortless and tighten the boot evenly, to provide the most comfort. The roller eyes with are made out of a non corrosive metal to ensure many years of use.
