Upgraded lace guides makes donning Chota's Caney Fork wade and portage boot almost as easy as stepping into your favorite slippers. One pull on the QuickLace, hook in, slide the barrel lock down and your ready to go. New molded heel counter enhances support and features a distinctive "Kick Off" Plate. Chota's Dual Density ATX100 rubber out sole provides traction over a wide range of wading and trail conditions. Dense rubber cleat receptacles accept Chota's optional steel or carbide cleats for additional traction as conditions demand. Removable EVA insole and 1/4" EVA foot bed liner provides the ultimate in versatility. Remove the 1/4" foor-bed liner for increased volume to comfortably accommodate sock foot waders or leave the foor-bed liner in for wet wading. Micro screen drains and full tongue gusset allows for rapid drainage while blocking out scree.
