The boot’s lower 11-inch profile offers an alternate fit for those who are not comfortable wearing a taller 14-inch boot. The new Water Ice Grip System built into the sole ensures extreme slip resistance and optimal performance in water, ice or snow. The Easy Slip Out System is designed with an integrated boot jack for easy and convenient removal of the boot. The CROSSTECH inner liner features the HAIX Secura Liner that will not pull out or wrinkle over time and offers additional protection from chemicals and body fluids.
