Loikka: 15 years of wading boot evolution

A modern wading boot is a real paradox. It should be as durable as the
best working boot and as light as a jogging shoe. It should be as easy to
put on as a slipper and still support your ankle as well as a full-blooded
hiking boot. And the traction should be similar to pole climber’s gaffs,
regardless of the environment in concern. We are painfully aware of all
the above, because we have designed wading boots for more than 15
years already. For season 2013 we are proud to present novel wading
boots called Loikka. They include all the experience which we have
gained during these past years. They are the final outcome of
15 years of evolution – they are our dream wading boots.

The foundation of these fully synthetic boots lies on the highly popular
Mako boots, but it includes several essential improvements. The front
part of the boot is now well protected by a special “rubber shield“. The
number and positioning of always vulnerable seams is optimized. The
ankle part gives a proper support and is lined with comfortable
neoprene. Its design is based on our ultra-comfortable Hopper wading
boots. This means that the boot is extremely easy to put on and take off.
Shoe laces go through nylon loops on the lower part and reduce thus the
number of metallic staples, which can in worst case wear the laces and
rust when used in saltwater conditions. Loops enable fast and easy
tightening of laces with less energy.

However, having stated all the above, the biggest improvement of them
all, can be found from the sole part of these boots. After a long period of
development and testing, we are proud to present our new rubber sole,
called GUMMI. This material is clearly softer and stickier than for
example widely used Vibram. As a result we have now a material, which
is providing 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 giving thus good protecting for toes. This way we can
prevent the way too common phenomena, where something sharp goes
between the sole and the boot and eventually makes the sole come
away. 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 with full felt sole, if you
like that option more. These boots are meant to be used in the hardest
imaginable conditions. You just can’t abuse them. Go and give your best
shot.
