Vision Musta Michelin Wading Boots - Vision Musta Michelin is a modern, lightweight wading boot with TPU re-enforced ballistic polyester upper offering good resistance to wear without making the boot too bulky and heavy. The Musta Boot is easy to put on and tighten and for added strength the stitch lines have their own grooves for protection and the EVA midsole and front bumper of the Michelin sole are stitched to the shoe’s upper.
The Michelin sole which Vision have designed together with the world famous Michelin tire manufacturer offers multiple benefits over many other rubber soles.
The front bumper is built into the outsole so there’s no possibility for them to be separated. The pattern of the sole is inspired by Michelin LTX A/S tire with modifications targeted for wading. The lugs on the sides have aggressive sculptures giving you extra grip for slopes and muddy paths. The lugs in the middle have wave sipings for adherence and adaptability over uneven surface of the rocks. The front and heel sculptures are designed to take the wear and tear during longer walks and their pattern adds traction when needed. For extremely slippery & slimy conditions Vision have included recessed positions in the sole to accommodate their Tungsten Carbide studs (sold seperately)
The rubber compound itself is a mixture of an off road and Scandinavian winter tire compounds. Just like the studless winter tires on snow these soles give you a very good grip on rocks. The more you put pressure on the sole the harder it grips the rock surface, as the soft compound with sipped lugs adapt over the uneven surface.
In addition to a better grip the boot also has a better feel while wading. The soft and well adaptive outsole combined with flexible EVA midsole lets you feel what’s under your feet, but at the same time provides enough support even in the hardest of conditions. Longer walks in mind it still rolls comfortably and offers good torsional stiffness.
