MIAMI (Feb.16, 2017) – Grundéns, producer of the world’s leading foul weather gear, was recognized with an Innovation Award today at the 2017 Miami Boat Show for its new 15-inch Deck-Boss Boot. The boot, which will be available at retail locations in April 2017, is Grundéns’ first foray into performance footwear for professional fishermen.

“We are elated to receive this honor and overwhelming positive reaction for our new boot,” said Mike Jackson , Grundéns president. “For more than two years, we worked hard to design a boot for fishermen on decks around the world, from Alaska to the Bahamas.”

Built by Fishermen, for Fishermen:

The Deck-Boss 15-inch Boot is engineered to be tough and durable, and is built with a rigid toe cap and an injection molded upper that eliminates delamination and cracking. Patented “Herkules Grip” synthetic rubber technology also provides superior traction on wet surfaces. The flexible upper folds down when the full 15-inch height is not needed and a 1-inch groove holds a durable silicone band that keeps pants out of the muck and legs dry.

Functional Comfort:

The boot’s interior is a comfortable and functional patent-pending proprietary insole. Engineered to mimic the bilge space in a boat, the insole is comprised of two separate levels, or “decks.” The softer upper deck is perforated, allowing liquid to find its way to the bilge space and can be replaced with after-market insoles for a more customized fit. The lower deck sits on pilings that create bilge space for liquid to accumulate. There are scuppers around the perimeter of the lower deck to allow liquid to drain into the bilge space.
