The Original Muck Boot Company Releases Apex Lace Up Boot | Gear News

Billed as a “high-performance, all-terrain boot”, The Original Muck Boot Company aims to break into the hiking market with new Apex Lace Up boot

Much loved by farmers, gardeners, dog walkers and horsey types alike, The Original Muck Boot Company is best-known for its wellington boots – tall, moss-coloured, rather posh-looking wellies that are billed as “100% muckproof”. Bring on the mud is virtually the brand’s strapline.

But now the company appears to be dipping its toes into the broader hiking and outdoors market, with the release of the Apex Lace Up boot. It is described as a “high-performance sport boot built on an innovative platform for high endurance outdoor pursuits”. It’s 100% waterproof, according to the brand’s marketing blurb, with a breathable mesh lining to provide “elite protection, flexibility, and moisture management”. The laces feature durable metal hardware, including speed hooks; there’s a neoprene collar at the ankle designed to add comfort; and the lugged rubber outsole has been engineered for good traction over “rocky, cold and wet ground – and of course the muck”.

Other design features include a dual density insole for all-day comfort and an EVA midsole for shock absorption. The boot is fully lined with 4mm of neoprene for flexibility and lightweight comfort, and you also get a variety of antimicrobial treatments – known as bioDEWIX Dry and NZYM – to help with odour control.

The Apex Lace Up costs £170 a pair and is available in two colour-ways, in both men’s and women’s versions. A similar version of the same boot, which features a zip rather than laces, was released in autumn 2020. The Apex Zip Short Boot costs £160.
