WESTWOOD, MASS. (June 2021) – Designed to work hard at every task and brave every condition while keeping feet comfortable and dry, The Original Muck Boot Company announces its new product developments for Spring ’22, including its new Chore Farm Leather collection, the Mudder boot and the Outscape Lace Up.  Muck’s new Chore Farm Leather Chelsea and Lace Up were built to withstand most any element associated with working on a farm, in a barn and beyond, while the Mudder’s innovative outsole was designed specifically to shed mud and clay while not compromising slip resistance on hard surfaces. Additionally, the new Outscape Lace Up provides the perfect hybrid between a waterproof boot and lightweight sneaker for all-around use.

The Chore Farm Leather Collection offers a sophisticated, easy-to-wear look with “Farm Proof” protection.  Not only are they able to stand up to Acidic and Alkaline elements found in the barn, but they are also flame resistant and tested for breathability and tear resistance.  As with all Muck boot styles, the Chore Farm Chelsea and Lace Up are 100 percent waterproof and feature a dual-density footbed with Memory Foam for long-lasting comfort.  The Chore Farm outsole guards against oil, gas and diesel fuel while being SRA-rated slip resistant on hard, flat surfaces.

“The Chore Farm Leather collection is another example of how Muck continues to strive and innovate for our core farm and agricultural consumer, while also offering a great-looking silhouette that will resonate with just about anyone looking for style, comfort and performance.,” said Xavier Kawula, senior product manager at Rocky Brands, Inc., parent company to The Original Muck Boot Company.  

“It was important for us in the development process to provide an innovative leather solution that offers the same high quality and protection as our trusted neoprene and rubber boots.”

The Mudder was designed for just that – the mud, slush and even floods that Mother Nature may bring.  A soft, flexible rubber upper provides durable and 100 percent waterproof protection, while the oil- and gas-resistant outsole has passed strict independent testing for superior traction on both wet and dry surfaces.  Staying true to its name, the Mudder’s outsole is made with a durable, rubber compound and features specialized tread spacing with lug side profiles that are specifically designed for wet and loose surface traction and to shed mud and clay.  Also beneficial for the muddiest of conditions, the Mudder was built to lock the ankle into the back of the boot to reduce heel slip and maintain fit integrity at all times, while the dual density insole will keep you comfortable from the first step of the day to the last.   

The Outscape Lace Up is the latest addition to Muck’s popular Outscape collection with a new lace-up design that offers a tailored fit, along with the look and feel of a lightweight sneaker.  The Outscape’s signature Muckskin flexible neoprene with abrasion-resistant TPU over-layer lends performance and versatility for every situation, whether working in the garden or the barn or out hiking with the dog.  Built to provide 100 percent waterproof protection and long-lasting comfort, the Outscape Lace Up features a footbed with Memory Foam, odor control and moisture management; self-cleaning outsole lugs for optimal traction, a shovel-ready nylon shank for added stability and protection while using garden tools, as well as a Guarden™ Rubber toe and heel that provide durability for more extensive wear.
