Established in 1999, The Original Muck Boot Company are still in their infancy as a footwear brand but they’ve already made a big impression on the outdoor world. Started with the sole purpose of offering the most comfortable outdoor footwear possible, as a brand, Muck boots broadened the range of styles they offer and today have welly styled boots, fashion boots, shoes and other footwear, suitable for a range of different purposes. They provide specialist footwear for Work, Farming, Equestrian use and gardening as well as sporting options perfect for everyday use like dog walking, making sure there’s a suitable choice for every occasion.
Part of what made Muck Boots so popular is their extraordinary comfort. They have achieved this by making their boots and footwear as lightweight and flexible as possible, as well as making them easy to put on or remove, a problem that every person must have experienced at some stage with their boots! Some styles are also designed to be extremely warm with waterproof neoprene uppers and depending on the model Muck boots also make specific sock liners and breathable Airmesh linings that wick away humidity and perspiration, to ensures your boots keep your feet as cosy, dry and as comfortable as possible as well as giving good protection with the 100% waterproof shell bottom.
The Original Muck Boot Company hand check each product, with each machine in the manufacturing process being hand operated. It is this attention to detail that allows the brand to ensure their on-going quality, and also makes each pair individual with minor variations in the size and finish to give a unique look. The process begins with a pre-made sole unit, then a 2mm layer of thermal foam is attached to the inner face of the sole for excellent insulation. After this they then start to apply the “Neoprene uppers and Airmesh lining around a former which provides the physical shape of the boots. Depending on the style, Muck Boots will then add toe Protectors, which can be made from either steel or fibreglass and they then finish their boots with the layers of rubber which are vulcanized to the boot. This process adds to the waterproof seal and generates further durability to ensure your feet stay protected for longer.
While that’s only a very basic insight to the production of these great boots it gives you an indication of the kind of care that goes into every product made by Muck Boots. It is precisely this care which has seen them grow to where they are today. No doubt they have an exciting future ahead of them and it will be exciting to see how they continue to grow further down the line.
