Cloudveil, maker of Inspired Angling Apparel has just launched a new alternative boot design that has a Vibram® IdroGrip™ sole for anglers looking to phase out felt.

IdroGripâ„¢ is a breakthrough compound that significantly improves grip on slick surfaces. It makes hiking in or around riverbanks much easier due to the durability and performance on wet surfaces. IdroGrip provides the ultimate control in both extreme high and low temperatures. This non-felt alternative also plays a part in stopping the spread of invasive species such as "Didymo" that can be transferred on apparel, boats, and other gear.

“This boot is a key offering from Cloudveil for a number of reasons,” Cloudveil Angling Sales Manager Ned Hutchinson stated. “The grippy rubber allows for significantly better grip in and around the water, but the boot is also one small step in helping to stop the spread of invasive species. Cloudveil wants to help educate anglers that the process only begins at buying the right equipment however, the real focus is on proper cleaning.”

The boot also features signature design elements such as a dual-density midsole and a slip-resistant ankle harness so that making a responsible choice requires no sacrifice in comfort or stability. The synthetic leather boot also includes a rubber toecap and two insoles — 4mm and 8mm — to get the fit right when worn with or without waders. The boots are also stud compatible for slick rivers and slippery streams.

The Cloudveil 2009 Spring Angling Collection is available online now, and also features the new Hellroaring Wading Pant, the soft shell Hellroaring Jacket, and the Nunya Vest. Watch Ned TV product reviews and take a look at “Red Gold” the newest documentary film from Felt Soul Media at
