The Maverick isn't just another cheap “stalking” boot. This lightweight boot was built from the forest floor up, one piece at a time, very deliberately. The brand new ACTrek™ XTi LITE™ outsole is crazy aggressive. The sharp, deep, rubber teeth grab like talons when sidling wet, mulchy faces and provide impressive stopping power on slippery descents. Sitting between this and your foot is our tested StalkAIR™ midsole and footbed, light, soft and deadly quiet. The upper is cut from heavy-duty STEELskin™ Polyester Oxford fabric. This has been chosen over leather in this case because it retains almost no water and remains as light as possible in the long dewy grass and muddy game trails. Packed with plenty of other key features, the Maverick, truly is, perfect for silent deerstalking. The high cut gives excellent ankle support when exploring unstable terrain and the Hydrafuse™ REINsoc™ water-resistant lining keeps your feet dry and comfortable.
