One of the biggest concerns to anglers when wading the flats is stepping on something when you’re not paying attention, especially stingrays. Aransas Outdoors has taken its lead from bulletproof vests and turned the idea into a product called the Predator Pro Reef Boot – a virtual Kevlar-impregnated fortress for your feet.
Designed to afford maximum protection while maintaining comfort, these boots feature four layers of vulcanized rubber, with Kevlar sandwiched between each layer, and a heavy gauge neoprene upper and gusset. The foot of the boot also features abrasion guards and a hard-plate sole approved by the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense for use in paratrooper boots. These boots protect your feet whether you’re walking on hard sand, mud, rocks or even oyster beds. Even stingrays pose virtually no threat, leaving you free to focus on the fish.
Predator Pro Reef boots come in unisex sizes 6 to 13, all in D width, and have a suggested retail price of $110.
