I once owned a clog-style shoe with sheep-shearling lining, leather outers, and an aggressively-treaded rubber sole. They were my all-time favorite shoe. But, of course, they quickly went out of production. Devastated, I’ve spent many-a-dollar trying to find a suitable match, but nothing has come close to checking all those boxes.

Until now.

Grundéns’ new Deviation Sherpa Ankle Boot is the fishing brand’s latest iteration of the rigid rubber ankle boot–a style they championed years ago. And they're are everything I’ve been looking for.

Neoprene side panels provide enough give to slip on and off like slippers–they have pull-on loops that I have never even touched because they’re so easy to slip into. The super-soft high-pile fleece lining creates a footbed that is more comfortable than most slippers I’ve worn. These 100-percent waterproof boots have a more rugged tread pattern than most rubber ankle boots–it looks good and provides plenty of traction on variable terrain.

If there’s one way they aren’t perfect it’s that they can get warm after extended walks, especially for those with sweaty feet. But of course they’re warm–and most of the time they’re just wonderfully cozy.

I’m grateful for these fantastic boots, and you will be too.
