Anglers are talking about rubber soles these days. And many will make the choice to get away from felt soles and switch to rubber. Felt is an excellent boot bottom. It sticks to the rocks well and it has been used for years. But, felt takes a long time to dry and it is a harder to disinfect that other materials.
Many of our wading boot manufacturers are producing rubber soled wading boots this year. Chota, a company based in Knoxville, Tennessee is one of our largest wading boot suppliers. We sell a lot of Chota boots, mainly because their design is comfortable. They fit well. They feel good on your feet.
The Rock Loc Boot is their new rubber soled wading boot. It is Chota’s most technically advanced wading boot ever. The Rock Loc out-sole features specially compounded “soft rubber”, air bobs and built in STL Cleat receptacles for a versatile high traction rubber wading sole.
The PU coated genuine leather uppers are abrasion resistant and provide a level of comfort only possible with real leather. The up-graded Chota QuickLace System allows effortless “slip-in/slip out” for the easiest donning wading boots made. All combined with Chota’s exclusive PU Injection mid-sole with “side wall” stitching for extreme comfort and durability.
These boots come with a package of 28 STL Cleats that you can install or remove at any time. Available in men’s sizes 8 – 14. $139.95
Chota gave us a pair to try out here at the shop. Those who have used them think they work pretty well in the Smokies. Buzz Buffington has been wearing them on the tailwaters for a while. He likes them too. This is a great new wading boot from some fine folks. They are in stock and available online or at the shop now.
