XTRATUF Ankle Deck Boot Sport Voted ‘Best in Footwear” at ICAST 2021

WESTWOOD, MASS. – XTRATUF, inspired by the rugged and always-evolving needs of the Alaskan fishing community, announces its new Ankle Deck Boot Sport received the “New Product Showcase Best in Footwear ” award by iCast 2021. Recognized at the iCast tradeshow in Florida last week, the Ankle Deck Boot Sport is crafted specifically for active anglers, featuring a lightweight design with tried and true XTRATUF performance and protection.

“The XTRATUF Ankle Deck Boot has been a standard — and even a badge of honor — for fishermen everywhere for several years now, for which we are truly grateful,” said Bo Thai, XTRATUF product manager. “To be recognized by such a highly-regarded entity as we continue to push the limits of technical advancements on a classic, is an absolute honor.”

XTRATUF’s Ankle Deck Boot Sport has a sport fishing-specific silhouette designed to help sport fishermen feel safe, comfortable and confident on the water. The outsole features PRO LITE, a new high-performance foam that is ultra durable and slip resistant. The one-piece outsole enables the Ankle Deck Boot Sport to be 30 percent lighter than other 6” boots in the category.

While delivering the comfort and agility of a sneaker with long cushion life and high energy return, the Ankle Deck Boot Sport offers XTRATUF’s renowned SRC-rated, non-marking slip resistance protection.
