The Loikka shoes’ front part is well protected by a rubber shield. The number and positioning of vulnerable seams is optimized. The ankle part gives proper support and is lined with comfortable neoprene. The shoe is extremely easy to put on and take off. Shoe laces go through nylon loops on the lower part enabling fast and easy tightening of laces with less energy.
Gummi™ is clearly softer and stickier than most rubber sole materials available. As a result, we have a material, which provides a unique level of traction. To make sure that the sole stays glued to the bottom of the boot, we extended the sole to cover the front part of the shoe thus giving good protection for toes. The final touch in our pursuit for superior traction is achieved by including well tested and proven low profile tungsten studs to the sole. Loikka wading boots are naturally also available without the studs and with a felt sole. These boots are meant to be used in the hardest imaginable conditions. You just can’t abuse them. Go and give it your best shot.
