Westwood, Mass. (July 16, 2018) - Designed for those who live life on the water, XTRATUF expands its line of performance shoes for Spring 2019. All new styles embody the authentic Alaskan commercial fishing lifestyle that XTRATUF is known for and that fishermen trust every day. For Spring 2019, new shoes and boots are designed to equip sport anglers both on and off the water. New styles feature XPRESSCOOL™, an antimicrobial evaporative cooling liner that offers additional breathability, as well as high-traction outsoles. XTRATUF will be at iCast (booth #618 in the West Building) and Outdoor Retailer (booth #49152-UL).

“Our products will always stem from our Alaskan commercial fishing heritage,” said Bo Thai, product manager for XTRATUF. “Our women’s segment has grown exponentially, so for Spring 2019, we will continue to grow our product line developed with the Salmon Sisters. These women’s-specific deck boots and shoes are loved by fishermen, and we see an opportunity to provide high-performing and great-looking footwear for her.”

The Salmon Sisters Collection - Original Designs by Two Alaskan Fishermen

The Salmon Sisters collection prints are original designs by two young Alaskan fishermen, born and inspired by the wilderness of Alaska and the sustainable fisheries of the North Pacific. Salmon Sisters products are designed in Alaska, inspired by nautical tradition, and made for a community of women fishermen, adventurers, and outdoor enthusiasts everywhere.

Three new Salmon Sisters styles are available for performance and casual nautical adventures. The Sharkbyte is a perforated leather slip-on boat shoe. A pull tab at the heel makes them easy to get on and off. Colors include: white with octopus print and seafoam green with kelp print. The 6-inch Salmon Sisters Ankle Deck Boot will be available for Spring19 in new colors and patterns including: a grey with kelp pattern and coral with salmon pattern. For casual excursions on the water, the Salmon Sisters Finatic II is a leather boat shoe with lined Ortholite Memory foam for all-day comfort. The interior of the shoe features Salmon Sisters’ patterns including kelp and octopus prints.

For tall water adventures, the Legacy 15-inch folds down with nautical prints including: chocolate salmon and chocolate kelp.

Ankle Deck Boots for Men Sport New Camo Prints

XTRATUF Ankle Deck Boots are crafted specifically for sport and recreational fishermen. These lightweight silhouettes feature the tried and true XTRATUF non-marking, slip-resistant Chevron outsoles. New styles for men sport Mossy Oak Elements™ and Realtree Fishing™ camouflage print on the upper that were developed specifically for fishing.

Deck Shoes for Men and Women

Versatile and fully performing, new XTRATUF Deck Shoes for men and women work on water all day and easily transition to a night out for dinner. These slip-into styles have a pull tab on the back for easy on-and-off while keeping a secure fit and a high traction outsole for on the water.


Born on the waters of Alaska where nothing is forgiving and no compromise goes unpunished, XTRATUF is part of authentic marine lifestyle that values performance and hard work. For more than 50 years, XTRATUF has gained the respect and loyalty of commercial fisherman who endure 50-foot seas that swallow the slightest misstep.
