The Original Muck Boot Company

Wherever one lives in the U.S., those working outdoors are bound to encounter wet weather at some point. A key part of apparel is a boot that can withstand such conditions.

The Original Muck Boot Company was started more than two decades ago to address the challenge of what happens when dirt and water combine to create muck. The brand set out to create a 100 percent waterproof boot solution to keep feet warm and dry in wet, windy, snowy, muddy and sticky conditions as is encountered in every season.

The Original Muck Boot Company caters to a broad population including men, women and children. Those in the construction and other trades can find products from the brand that can be useful on a jobsite. 

Designing Muck Boots

The Original Muck Boot Company is part of a line-up of footwear-focused companies that includes Danner, Carolina, Thorogood, Red Wing Shoes, KEEN Utility, White’s, Wesco and Nicks.

The company’s stated mission is to be dedicated to delivering boots and footwear that are 100 percent ‘muckproof’: ‘remarkably protective, exceptionally comfortable, and totally waterproof, made with premium neoprene and rubber, and designed to brave every element’. Muck Boots feature recessed pull tabs attached from the inside so as not to pose a catch threat and a silver reflective stripe for safety. All seams are cemented, stitched and sealed with rubber tape for guaranteed waterproof protection.

Additional features include a kick-off lug for easy off without touching the boot. Scuba grade neoprene offers 100 percent waterproof protection, natural insulation, durable comfort and flexibility.

Multiple layers of rubber are designed into the boot where necessary for additional durability. Coarser textures and the heaviest rubber are placed on the toe and heel for optimal protection. A rubber cub sole is incorporated for durability and traction. A neoprene bootie sits inside the cup sole for extra stability.

For men, the company offers various styles: ankle boots, tall boots, leather boots, steel toe boots, wide calf boots, shovel-ready boots, camouflage, and anti-viral protection. Half sizes are available. 

Work and safety offerings for men include everything from commercial-grade farming boots to steel toe or comp toe boots to certified safety boots made for extreme conditions to keep feet dry, comfortable and safe in harsh environments.

Case in point: the Chore collection, which includes the Men's Chore Classic CSA Steel Toe, an easy on/off lower height work boot. The boot is designed to handle the toughest of jobs, featuring a rubber overlay and quick cleaning sole. The boot meets ASTM F2413-18 M/I/C EH / ESR (electric shock resistant) rated outsoles and CSA Grade 1 standards. The boot is 100 percent waterproof and is designed with steel toe impact protection and steel shank for structural support. It features a puncture-resistant midsole and breathable mesh lining. The 5mm CR Flex-Foam neoprene liner is designed to provide exceptional comfort, flexibility, shock absorption and heat retention properties. It is crafted to adjust to the contours of the foot to resist blisters and chafing.

Other features include a lace front and neoprene collar, double toe and triple rubber heel reinforcement. A quick-cleaning rubber outsole is designed to offer durability and traction on slick surfaces. The bioDEWIX antimicrobial footbed insert top cover with NZYM for odor control and moisture management provides additional benefits. The work boot provides a comfort range of sub-freezing to 65°F / 18°C.

Muck Boots for Work and Safety

In the work and safety collection, women will find nearly two dozen waterproof offerings. Styles include ankle boots, leather boots, tall boots, steel toe boots, wide calf boots, and shovel-ready boots. Half sizes are available.

For example: the Women's Originals Lace Duck Boot, inspired by the company’s Chore Boot. It is 100 percent waterproof and offers lace-up construction for a tailored fit. The boot also features a rugged full grain upper designed for durable waterproof performance.

The boot has a removable contour molded footbed with memory foam for long lasting cushioning and a bioDEWIX dry footbed insert top cover with NZYM for odor control and moisture management. Its rubber boot outsole is designed with innovative lug design to provide traction while quickly releasing mud and other debris. The brand currently has 38 new offerings, many of which are applicable for women and men in construction and other trades.
