Q. What makes these boots so great?
A. It's all in the design. All MUCK BOOTS™ are 100%
waterproof keeping feet warm, dry and protected in harsh weather and
messy working conditions. The secret – our exclusive, self-insulating,
waterproof CR-foam shell construction. The CR-foam bootie material acts
as a “neutral medium” between inside and outside temperatures. Naturally
lightweight, and very comfortable, the material keeps the foot and
lower leg warm and protected in cold and wet conditions.
Natural rubber overlays act as a protective skin for the upper bootie.
The upper has a triple-reinforced toe area and quadruple-reinforced heel area. The outsole is made of high abrasion natural rubber. The rubber in the boots will stay flexible for years.

Q. How are the boots sized?
and shoes are available in whole sizes only, but will stretch to fit
half sizes. There is a 15mm toe allowance built into the sizing.
Q. Do the boots fit wide widths?
A. Yes. Our boots are made to standard widths, but the
materials will stretch to fit widths up to a EEE. For narrow feet, we
suggest wearing a thicker sock or putting in an additional sock liner to
take up room.
Q. Are the collar and calf stiff?
A. No. The upper calf and topline areas are made of soft,
flexible CR-foam and will stretch. With the flexible upper, the pant leg
can be worn over or inside the boot. The collar material can be turned
down to allow hands-free removal and vent humidity in warmer working

Q. Should people wear thick socks?
A. It isn’t necessary unless activities are planned for extreme, cold conditions. The
CR-foam bootie material is rated sub-zero during active use and will
effectively withstand freezing temperatures for up to one hour.
Medium-weight athletic socks should provide the best fit. The upper will
stretch to accommodate thicker socks.
Q. How does CR-foam compare or rate against other lofted insulations and waterproof membranes?
A. Lofted insulations are typically used in work boots and hiking shoes to resist cold temperatures. They
are typically laminated to the whole shoe lining or glued into the toe
area of a shoe or boot. It is not a waterproof material.
The CR-foam used in MUCK BOOTS™ is both waterproof and self insulating.
Our materials exceed the long-term effectiveness of waterproof membrane
materials and provide greater insulating properties than all
non-specialty temperature-control substrates.

Q. Do these boots allow your feet to breathe?
A. One of the most important and revolutionary features of MUCK BOOTS™
footwear is the structured, Breathable Airmesh lining used in all our
products. Airmesh is made up of thousands of tiny vertical
fibers that allow air to circulate throughout the interior lining
surfaces. Excess humidity and perspiration that might build up in the
boot are quickly wicked away. This creates a comfortable environment for
your feet that lasts for extended periods of use.
Q. How do you care for and clean these products?
A. The rubber shell and nylon upper are very durable and clean up easily
with a spray of water or gentle scrubbing with soap and water. The
rubber upper can be conditioned with wax polish, Armor All® or liquid
detergent. It is not recommended to use conditioners on the outsole
area. This may cause it to become slick in wet or icy conditions.
Q. Can the rubber be repaired if punctured?
A. Yes. The natural rubber can be repaired with sealant found
in local hardware stores. We recommend Aquaseal® brand marine sealant.
First, clean the punctured area thoroughly with mineral spirits. Then,
apply the sealant over affected area and wipe to a thin film. The
sealant should air dry for at least 24 hours.
