The Grundens Deck Boss Boots are designed for the working angler or boat crew member out on deck. These boots are injected molded, making these boots better than traditional vulcanized boots as no glue/taping is used in the design. The injected materials used in the construction of these boots eliminates cracking from temp changes.The injected material is called SEBS. They are made to be able to roll down for more flexibility while you are wearing them.
Made in the USA
High grade neoprene material inner lining
Outsole: Herkules grip which provides amazing traction out on deck.
Insole:Bilge insole with upper and lower deck construction
Upper Deck of Insole: Made from foam material. The heel cup locks the heel in place and is perforated for thorough water drainage. The upper deck can be removed and replaced with an aftermarket insole without changing the fit of the boot.
Lower Deck of Insole: Sits on pilings, this keeps your feet out any accumulated water in the boots, and allows for more breathability
Built in composite/plastic toe cap, not safety toe rated
Built in silicone band to go over your bibs to keep water out
Durable and NOOOO SLIP ...where these when im bass fishing in fall, or chasing bluefin..great boot.

Great construction, really comfortable on the feet, designed very well, and great value for the money. Definitely pleased with this purchase! I'd definitely recommend as a gift! P.S. Buy one size larger.
ConsCan be a little slippery on smooth surfaces. But not a great concern.

Look Nice but are complete Crap

Got these boots for a job in Alaska when They first arrived they lookd really nice and fit well. unfortunately they are poorly made. within two days from kneeling down I had rubed a hole through the tow which then allowed water to get inside. Poorly made and definitely not thick enough material. I would definitely go with Xtra tough boots they will last unlike these POS*

So far so good. They are comfortable but sizes are on the small side. I wear a 10 shoe but usually get deck boots a size bigger to accommodate thick socks in cold weather. The size 11 was too small so I had to get 12's. I have been disappointed with my last 2 pairs of Xtra Tuff's, they used to be the best but now they're basically crap. Grundens has wisely stepped in the market (pun intended) with these boots. We'll see how they hold up over time but initially I like them.
ProsComfortable, seem like quality boots, made in Pacific Northwest
Conssizes run on the small size

The way how every part of the boot , especially the soles and inserts, is created seems so purpose driven and carefully thought out . The boot is high enough and tight enough around the calves to create a comfortable "seal" that kept any noticeable water from leaking in while fishing in the NJ surf or party boat.
ProsStylish without sacrificing function and comfort. Excellent price point.
ConsNone, but to be fair, I haven't used them in colder weather or in rough seas on a boat, yet. Might be slightly snug with very thick wool socks

Not made for commercial fishing!Very slippery soul. Very comfortable to wear but if u want to get hurt do not wear them on fiberglass boats steel boats aluminum boats or any kind of boats. You will fall and get hurt!!!
ConsVery slippery soul. Good way to get killed working Alaska waters.

I typically wear a size 11.5 so I ordered a 12. Plenty of room in the toe area, but around the foot they felt a bit snug with thin socks but were still comfortable. Might have needed to exchange for a size bigger if I planned to wear heavy socks. Fished standing in stormy weather for 12 hours straight and feet were very comfortable and dry.
ConsNone, but order a size up from what you typically wear.

So I am one of those guys who has still been running his 30 year old deck boots because the newer models made in China turned out to be to junk. I guess they corrected the problem but I was in no hurry to find out but when I saw these new Grundens I decided to give them a try. These boots are amazing. They fit very well and the dual inserts with the nice insole are very high quality. The rubber is super soft and flexible, especially on top for rolling over. They also give, by far, the most cushion I have felt in a boot. Finally, for those who care about this kind of thing, I had a guy stop me in the parking lot when he saw them and the deckhands on the overnight trip where I first wore the boots were drooling over them... Clearly these boots are cool.
ProsGreat fit and cushion. Super flexible and easy to roll over.

These boots fit like a glove. Let it be known though that I have no prior experience with XtraTuff boots, but after HOURS of online research and sifting through reviews I decided to go with Deck Boss boots. Sizing was exactly as I had read it would be. I wear a size 6 in mens and 8 in women- I ordered a 7 and they feel perfect. I may leave an updated review after I actually get to Alaska and give them a work out. Thanks Tackle Direct! Your service has been amazing- from the questions about the product, purchasing, and receiving. I will definitely recommend this boot and Tackle Direct!
Please consider making Deck Boss boots in Size 15 wide. Many of us have large feet and post ortho surgery need a high quality product for safety. My Balance carries great fitting products but not a true boot for bad sea states! Thanks Alex Peck 45 Overlook Road Glastonbury Ct email@example.com
Hello Alexander, we are just a retailer for Grundens but that is a great question you may want to ask them here is their number (844) 328-7760
I have a nerve issue on the upper side on each arch. If the boots are too tight on the top of the arch, my feet will start throbbing after about an hour. Very painful. Do you know if these boots are tight on the top of the arch. As an example, I can not wear mucklocks or lacrosse rubber boots.
These boots aren't to tight on the top of your foot they do have some wiggle room.
Hello, I work on the bearing sea as a pollock fisherman and extratuff boots suck and don't hold up like they use to will you make size 15 deck boots? I'm really interested in wearing these new boots. Thank you.
