The new Bankside wading boot has a Vibram IdroGrip outsole designed exclusively for the Grundéns HEXAGRIP alloy cleat and stud system. The deep tread pattern has eight textured screw-in hexagon plates in shaped recesses, and six carbide-tipped cleats at the toe, arch, and heel of each boot. The sticky rubber—along with two different types of metal alloys and textures—gives maximum traction on a variety of surfaces including snow, ice, clay, scoured glacial boulders, loose cobbles, and slimy tailwater bedrock.

The boots have an EVA foam midsole—like a comfortable sneaker—with a molded heel counter so your foot doesn’t slide around inside the boot during technical wading. The upper is waterproof Nubuck leather reinforced with scratch rubber overlays for extra foot protection and durability.
